NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Students from Harvard and Yale universities, along with others who staged a climate change protest on the field during last month’s football game between the Ivy League schools, were sentenced Friday to perform community service.

Judge Philip Scarpellino of New Haven Superior Court in Connecticut ordered about 50 people arrested on disorderly conduct charges during the Nov. 23 game to perform five hours of community service and return to court Jan. 27.

If those conditions are met the charges will be dropped, the judge said.
