One of the four people charged with burning a cross in front of a black woman's home in Arroyo Grande, tells us the incident is being blown out of proportion.
Sara Matheny turned to our camera Friday morning in a San Luis Obispo courtroom and made the statement to our KSBY News photographer. She appeared in court with co-defendants William Soto, Jason Kahn and Jeremiah Hernandez.
Their attorneys were filing a motion in the case, but the defendants joked, smirked even laughed before the hearing. At one point, the bailiff had to ask them to watch their language.
Charges against the four include felony arson, terrorism and conspiracy. They all pleaded not guilty for the March 18th incident.
The four are due back in court September 7th.
