CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

One of the protesters that was involved in the rally that shut down I-75 on Nov. 25 pleaded guilty on Wednesday.

Rhonda Shaw pleaded guilty for disorderly conduct. Her charge of inducing panic was dropped due to the plea. Shaw was sentenced to time served from Nov. 25 through Dec. 4.

Shaw was part of eight protesters that was charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic after they ignored police orders to stay off the street. The protesters walked onto the northbound side of I-75 highway at Ezzard Charles Drive, blocking traffic. I-75 was shut down for about 30 minutes.

The protest was part of the "Hands up for Justice" rally after Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was not indicted in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
