Asheville couple found guilty of trespass from same-sex marriage protest

They testified Thursday in Buncombe County Superior Court about their more than 30 years together and how they sat on the floor of the Register of Deeds Office reciting the nearly 1,200 legal benefits they are denied but heterosexual couples enjoy.
