News SHAC 7 Sentenced Today
The SHAC 7’s case has caused quite a stir in the animal rights and activism networks. Jake Conroy, Darius Fulmer, Lauren Gazzola, Josh Harper, Kevin Kjonaas, and Andy Stepanian—members of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty—were convicted earlier this year of a list of charges that (for some) included Conspiracy to Violate the Animal Enterprise Protection Act, Conspiracy to Stalk, and Conspiracy to Harass Using a Telecommunications Device. (Originally seven people were charged, donning them the SHAC 7, but the charges against one person were later dropped).
Both Conroy and Harper have lived in Seattle.
The sentencing was supposed to happen at 10 am this morning in New Jersey, but I’ve been unable to find out what happened. Some of them were facing three-five years in prison, while others faced 11-13. Has anyone heard more about the sentencing? I’ll continue to dig and post more information when it becomes available.
