La Jolla gallery owner and salesman plead not guilty to illegally selling ivory art!

The Carlton Gallery in La Jolla was charged with violating AB96, possessing and selling $1.3 million in ivory.

Nsefu Co-Founder Coe Lewis and Nsefu Board Member Beth Hill along with other activists, protested outside the store in La Jolla for weeks on Saturdays.

Yesterday was their arraignment which Beth attended. They pled not guilty, of course, claiming ignorance. Beth met the Union Tribune reporter there and she published an article, mentioning Beth and Nsefu Wildlife.

The city will offer a settlement at the court date. If refused, it'll go to trial.

Court date is February 5th at 8:50am. Beth is organizing a protest outside the courthouse that day at 8am.
