In Sacramento today, a woman who is accused of tossing menstrual blood at California lawmakers was ordered by a judge to not go anywhere near the state Capitol while she waits for her trial.

Rebecca Dalelio, 43, did not enter a plea on Monday. She is scheduled to return to Sacramento County Superior Court in February to face charges of vandalism and assault on public officials.

From AP:

Senators had just finished taking a vote Sept. 13 when Dalelio allegedly tossed the blood onto the floor of the Senate from the public gallery, saying: “That’s for the dead babies.”

At least six state senators were hit by the cup or the blood and red splatters were visible on some desks and the carpeting. Tests showed the blood did not contain pathogens or infections. Senators had to move their proceedings to a committee room.

The Santa Cruz County resident was among a group protesting vaccination legislation.
