The President of Naperville Smart Meter Awareness appeared in court after her January arrest.
Kim Bendis appeared in front of Judge Bruce R. Kelsey. Her attorney asked for more time before her next court date.
The defense needs to subpoena the video Bendis shot on her cell phone the day of her arrest. Naperville Police confiscated the video and haven’t returned it to Bendis.
The stay at home mom is charged with two misdemeanors for attempted eavesdropping and resisting a police officer.
Bendis was video taping the installation of a smart meter at Jennifer Stahl’s home. Stahl is the Secretary of Naperville Smart Meter Awareness. Police broke a lock on the fence of the home so city workers could install the new meter and officers said the women were interfering with the process.
Bendis’ attorney advised her not to comment after the proceeding.
Bendis is expected back in court June 18th.
