Shailene is due in court in Mandan, North Dakota, on October 24 charged with criminal trespass and engaging in a riot. She could face 60 days in jail and $3,000 in fines if she is convicted.

The Standing Rock Sioux want construction of the $3.8 billion pipeline halted, saying it could taint water supply and encroach on tribal burial sites. Protests supporting the tribe have been going on for months.
