'Sabotage' Convictions Vacated for Anti-Nuclear Nun, Army Vet Activists

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

A federal appeals court has vacated the 2014 convictions handed down to three anti-nuclear activists—a nun and two army veterans—and ordered a lower court to re-sentence them.

Sister Megan Rice, Greg Boertje-Obed, and Michael Walli were convicted last year of damaging national defense premises under the Sabotage Act after the activists entered the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, in July 2012.

Apparently the prosecution did not do a good enough job of judge shopping for this appeal.
