Shailene Woodley faces 60 days in jail

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Actress Shailene Woodley faces up to 60 days in jail as well as $3,000 in fine if found guilty of trespass, following an arrest for her involvement in a protest earlier this week.

The "Divergent" actress is set to appear in court on October 24 and faces charges of criminal trespass and engaging in a riot, reported broadcast network CBS, according to mirror.co.uk.

Woodley had joined The Standing Rock Sioux, who want the laying down of a $3.8 billion pipeline stopped, claiming that it could ruin water supplies as well as destroy tribal burial sites.

She was arrested on Monday when she was protesting against the proposed plans for the Dakota Access Pipeline, which aims to transport crude oil from the North Dakota Bakken region through South Dakota and Iowa into Illinois, crossing the Missouri River.

The star was among a reported 100 protestors who turned up at the construction site for a peaceful protest.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the "Fault In Our Stars" actress continued her fight against the construction, using the hashtags "#NoDAPL" and "#protectcleanwater".

She captioned an image of the river: "One day, baby, we'll sing our poetry. the words dripping from our tongues wet with ripened patience. and the lyrics, the sweet fruits born from the seeds our aging hands are now sowing. #alwaysinallways #heartforward #uptous #NoDAPL #protectcleanwater #iamonyourside".

The news about her possible jail sentence comes after it was reported that the actress had been released from Morton County Jail.

A representative for the star told E! News after she was released: "She appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline."

She was among 26 protestors who were arrested after police broke up their peaceful protest.

At the time, the star claimed her arrest was a result of her being "well known".

She said: "I'm being arrested! I was down there with everybody else! I don't know what's going on, as soon as they came I left. It's because I'm well known, it's because I have 40,000 people watching."
