Just saw this news, Sauder was arrested on April 18th in Minot, North Dakota, protesting at the missile base there. If convicted, he faces six months in prison & a $5,000 fine. Seems like an open-and-shut case, unfortunately. Also, apparently this is the 2nd time this has happened and he served six months in prison back in 1982.

Actual prison time seems completely over the top for this sort of protest. Maybe he got jail time because he refused to pay a fine? That would make sense, given his commitment to civil disobedience.

On a lighter note, I'm not sure that Native American headdress is a good look for him. :)

Good news !! Richard Sauder has been released from jail.

Here is the update:

Quote:
Note from Richard Dolan. I just received a phone call from Richard Sauder, who has informed me that he stood trial on July 23, and was released from custoday. The judge did find him guilty for trespassing on a federal facility, but sentenced him to time served. So, after three months of custody, Richard is free. He asked me to thank everyone who supported him while he was incarcerated. I am sure he will issue his own statement sometime soon.

Based on his letter from prison, he seems to be a very decent, devoted nut job. We need more like him. At the least, they're fun to watch and harmless, at the most they might accomplish something truly wonderful!
