Today after two days of court Jordan Halliday was convicted with count one
"Targeted Residential Picketing Prohibited" (which is a 'class b misdemeanor')
by a jury of four peers.
The jury deliberated for more than four hours and couldn't decided on a verdict
for count two "wearing a mask with the intent to commit a crime". So instead of
having a dead lock and a hung jury which would lead to another mistrial for this
case (the first being a mink farmer on the jury) prosecution decided to dismiss
his 2nd charge.
Jordan was sentenced to 1 year probation, 50 hours community service, and a $750
fine. This may affect his felony charges. This case was part of a pending
pretrial condition. If the judge views this conviction as Jordan being a threat
to society they may jail Jordan again. His lawyer plans on appealing this
Some activists charged with this same crime still have their trials pending and
they are grateful for your ongoing support, please continue to support them. For
