(ABC 6 NEWS) -- 20 frac sand protestors arrested in Winona have been convicted of trespassing.

Our crew was there in April when 35 people were brought into custody for blocking frac sand trucks. All were charged with trespassing. Warrants were issued for six people who did not show up. The prosecution dropped the cases against some others. One person was acquitted.

The remaining 20 who were convicted were given a year of probation and ordered to pay nearly 300 dollars in restitution and court costs.
