Scientology protester’s case continued without a finding

I have to admit I didn’t see this coming, but a Boston Municipal Court judge has continued without a finding the case against a man accused of disrupting proceedings at the Back Bay Church of Scientology earlier this year.

On Oct. 22, Judge Thomas C. Horgan imposed a one-year CWOF against Gregg Housh, who had been charged with disturbing an assembly of worship and disturbing the peace.

As part of the plea, Housh was ordered to stay away from the Back Bay headquarters of the Church of Scientology and its new headquarters in Boston’s South End.

Suffolk prosecutors also moved to dismiss a criminal harassment complaint against Housh after determining they could not prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt.

Prosecutors alleged that Housh and other members of a controversial web-based group called Anonymous entered the Church of Scientology’s Beacon Street building during a March 1 protest, disturbing the proceedings and alarming those inside.
