ASU professor sentenced to 9 months of probation

ASU professor gets 9 months probation for resisting arrest in incident that sparked national attention

Arizona State University English professor Ersula Ore, who was arrested for alleged assault after a confrontation with an ASU police officer, has been sentenced to 9 months probation after a hearing on Friday in Maricopa County Superior Court.

Ore pleaded guilty to resisting arrest earlier this month and her attorney said at the time that the plea deal did nothing to change their view that the arrest was unlawful.

"Personally I'm wondering what about me seemed to be a threat, so much so that it warranted an officer touching me and violating me," Ore said before Superior Court Commissioner Julie Mata. "I am hurt, upset, angry and humiliated. I deal with fears on a regularly hourly basis –they wake me up at night."

Ore said she had a moment of weakness questioning the arrest, but felt that she could no longer trust whether those in uniform were there to help or hurt her.

Ore was arrested May 20 after she refused to provide her identification to an ASU police officer who stopped her for walking in the middle of the street in Tempe, according to police documents.

Ore said she believes she was wrongfully arrested and that her arresting officer used excessive force during the incident, which sparked national news coverage.

Ore struggled with ASU Police Officer Stewart Ferrin during the arrest and kicked him in the shin during the process. Ferrin warned Ore that he would "slam" her onto his vehicle if she did not comply, according to footage from the dashcam video.

Eyewitnesses expressed concerned while the arrest was made, with one calling 911 to report the officer pulling Ore to the ground aggressively.

"I never once saw a single solitary individual get pulled over by a cop for walking across a street ... in a campus location," Ore says in the video.

Some of Ore's supporters have said she was racially profiled for jaywalking.

Defense attorney Alane Roby stressed repeatedly that Ore did resist arrest by asking Ferrin why she was being apprehended, though should be granted leniency given she has no criminal history and that extended probation time would be an unnecessary drain on state resources.

Roby asked Mata specifically for one day of supervised probation.

Ore's supporters packed the courtroom and included many ASU faculty and friends. Among those was English Professor Keith Miller, who has known Ore for the last several years and took over the summer school course she was slated to teach prior to the incident.

"She's a good professional, she's a good person and she's not a danger to anyone," Miller said in court.


Deputy County Attorney Doug Mangum told Mata he believed there had been positive and negative aspects for both parties involved in the incident, however that the state felt 9 to 12 months was a sufficient amount of time to accomplish the goal of probation.

"The state fully recognizes she has a lot of support from the community but we are here for the sentencing of a criminal case," he said. "We certainly hope that is not lost."


ASU police administrators, in their preliminary review of the incident, said they did not believe Ferrin had racially profiled her or used excessive force.

Ferrin was later put on paid administrative leave and the school's police department asked for an outside review of the incident.

Ore was visibly upset following the sentencing, with Roby thanking supporters outside the courtroom on her behalf. She said she was disappointed the proposed one day of supervised probation was not granted.

"I would have liked to see that but the reality is nine months of probation--as long as someone is successful--can very easily turn into four," Roby said. "We do believe that her constitutional civil rights were violated and we're not going to let that go."

to be honest....

whenever I come in contact with police my objective is get away (1)not sexually assaulted and (2) alive.


She could have easily been shot and killed.

That video turns my stomach, I hate to see a Black Woman disrespected and humiliated by the police. This is something many yt officers enjoy. I work with many racist police and I know for a fact, the hate for educated Black Women is real.

Had I been in her situation, I'd have shown my ID because it's the law to do so. Once she decided not to abide by that law, that officer is permitted to treat her as a resisting criminal.

Think before you get angry and don't give them the upper hand because they will exploit it.

We need something more dramatic yet non-violent. But if we're not all on one accord, nothing will happen......once again.

"Move On" petitions never work. Once they started accepting petitions for stupid stuff like late pizza delivery, they lost their power. (If they ever had any)

I get what she was trying to do but once he continued to display he was going to be an a-hole she shouldve let him arrest her.

There is no them, we have to remember who created the stereotypes and they intended them to apply to all of us, we have to fight this together 

Your clothes, hair, speech, job doesn't exempt you

If this officer isn't severely disciplined we need some sort of concerted response.   What that looks like I don't know but we should start looking into making our collective voice heard



I totally agree
