[Update on the update: all given suspended sentences today, 'cept for Ashley who got some probation for being a naughty girl previously. I suspect somebody at the house will provide deets later, after they finish partying. WHOOHOO!]
['nother update: more details and clarification on sentencing in the comments...]
[From the Post:
Eleven members of a group found guilty of an illegal demonstration at the U.S. Supreme Court in January over conditions at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, were sentenced to jail yesterday.
Thirty-four members of the group, Witness Against Torture, were convicted Thursday in D.C. Superior Court of misdemeanor charges stemming from the Jan. 11 protest on the Supreme Court plaza. Twenty-three of the defendants were given one year's probation.
Four of the 11 who received jail time were initially given probation by Judge Wendell P. Gardner Jr., but the four said they wanted to be jailed instead. The jail terms ranged from one to 15 days.
All were fined $50 and prohibited from going near the Supreme Court for a year.
