Prosecutors have dropped felony and misdemeanor charges against a 21-year-old San Ildefonso Pueblo woman accused of striking two Santa Fe police officers with a cardboard sign while protesting a re-enactment of Spanish conquistadors reclaiming the city from Pueblo Indians, her attorney said Tuesday.

The move came on the eve of a hearing in Santa Fe County Magistrate Court scheduled for Wednesday, at which prosecutors would have had to lay out their evidence against Jennifer Marley and try to convince a judge to let the case against her proceed.

Prosecutors may still refile the charges against Marley in a higher court or seek a grand jury indictment. District Attorney Marco Serna did not respond to messages seeking comment after business hours Tuesday.
