Thursday, July 30 -- Two Madison women have been charged in the beating of State Senator Tim Carpenter during a protest at the Capitol on June 23. Kerida O'Reilly, 33, and Samantha Hamer, 26, were arraigned in Dane County court yesterday and each charged with one felony count of being a party to substantial battery. Carpenter was attacked outside the Capitol building when he was recording events on his camera. The accused were released on signature bonds. Their attorneys asked for the charges to be dismissed due to lack of evidence, but a court commissioner denied the request.
