Victoria Advocate's take on Calhoun County's most famous resident

December 14, 2005
PORT LAVACA – Diane Wilson, 57, formerly of Seadrift, was arrested by Harris County deputies on a Calhoun County warrant for criminal trespassing. She was returned to Calhoun County Friday and began serving 120 days in jail after a jury recommended the sentence plus a $2,000 fine in January 2004.
A Corpus Christi appellate court upheld the Calhoun County court’s decision in May 2004. Wilson, who has been out of the state since that time was arrested when she returned to Texas, said Sheriff B.B. Browning.
Wilson was forcefully removed from a platform at Dow Chemical’s Seadrift plant on Aug. 26, 2002 after lodging an eight-hour protest accusing the company of not making amends for losses in the 1984 industrial disaster in Bhopal, India.
