Monday morning, a jury in Dawsonville is expected to hear closing arguments in a trial that has attracted national attention.

54-year-old Nydia Tisdale, who describes herself as a “citizen journalist,” was arrested back in 2014, when she refused to stop taping a Republican rally at Burt’s Pumpkin Farm in Dawson County.

Chris Joyner is an Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter who has been at the trial since it started. He joined Denis O’Hayer on “Morning Edition” to discuss the trial and its implications.
