PAYING THE PRICE

December 11, 2012

NEWPORT – The six protesters arrested on Lowell Mountain last December were in court Tuesday for a sentencing hearing.
Judge Martin Maley issued the sentence but delayed execution pending an appeal before the Vermont Supreme Court. If the defense loses the appeal, the sentence will be a $250 fine or 25 hours of community service.
Deputy State’s Attorney Sarah Baker asked for a $250 fine or two to three days on a work crew because it cost the state money to send deputies to Lowell Mountain to arrest the protesters.
