Now on any warm fall or spring semester weekend on the outskirts of UMass, it's not unusual for APD to make two or three times that number of arrests for the same infraction. But kinda of a big difference between college aged youths and these gentlemen, who are pretty much repeat offenders.
In Eastern Hampshire District Court on Monday all five had their charges converted from criminal to civil and were assessed the town's $300 bylaw fine fee. They were, however, credited $90 for "time served," three days at the Hampshire County House of Correction.
