In this photo taken March 23, 2015, people wait outside the Supreme Court in Washington in hopes to gain admittance for oral arguments. Protesters who demonstrated inside the U.S. Supreme Court are facing the threat of a year in jail and stiff fines, a sign that prosecutors and the justices themselves are losing patience over the courtroom interruptions after the third protest in just over a year. Five people arrested last week after voicing displeasure with court decisions that removed limits on political campaign contributions now face charges including one that carries a maximum jail term of a year and up to a $100,000 fine _ a sharp escalation from the possible penalties sought after two earlier protests.
