Ten people pleaded guilty on Thursday to obstructing an emergency vehicle in connection with a protest on I-93 in Milton in 2015. 

A judge sentenced each of the protesters to six months of unsupervised probation, during which time they need to complete 60 hours of community service at a non-profit organization approved by the Quincy District Court probation department. 

Mark Schwaller, 33; James Billman, 26; Noah McKenna, 29; Emily Osmum, 28; Nicole Sullivan, 26; Angela Davis, 44; Eli Cohen, 26; Brett West, 27; William Connolly, 27; and Joshua Nickel, 25, pleaded guilty. Nickel also admitted to negligent operation of a motor vehicle for using his car as a shield to block the road while the barrels were unloaded. 

The daughter of a man who was being transported to a level 1 trauma center following an accident, and was in  one of the blocked ambulances during the incident, delivered an impact statement to the court, calling the event "a reckless attempt to draw attention to what I feel is a very important topic."
