Not to keep anybody guessing. The Transform Now Plowshares jury just came back with guilty verdicts on vandalism and sabotage charges. The latter carries a possible prison sentence of 20 years. There’s an article here. The pertinent fact about the sabotage charge:
In order to be found guilty of sabotage, the jury must believe that the three protesters went on to Y-12 property with the intent to interfere with nuclear security. That’s exactly what the prosecution contends. They also say the act damaged the credibility of Y-12 worldwide.
Kind of a leap for the jury–and part of the problem of the prosecution’s motion in limine, which limits the defense testimony about the motivation for the action.
I keep telling folks–stop worrying about the protest and start getting busy on Jury Nullification.
