Judge Dee Benson Sentenced Tim DeChristopher to Two Years Federal Prison

Judge Dee Benson sentenced Tim DeChristopher to 2 years in federal prison. Tim was led away in handcuffs, but no before making this powerful statement. As time permits, I will write about the tortured logic Judge Dee Benson (former Chief of Staff for Senator Orrin Hatch) used to justify sending DeChristopher to federal prison AT YOUR EXPENSE, instead of graduate school at Tim’s expense.

Protesters who attended the sentencing began blocking traffic and are being arrested as I write this.

Thank you to defense attorneys Ron Yengich, Pat Shea and Elizabeth Hunt for an amazing job, pro-bono. They will file an appeal. Stay tuned.
