Green Scare: Federal court jury finds Eric McDavid guilty | 28.09.2007 13:40 | Animal Liberation | Ecology | Repression

Thursday, September 27 2007: After deliberating for 11 hours over two days, a federal court jury has found Eric McDavid guilty of conspiring to blow up government and other facilities as part of an eco-terror plot.

The verdict came late Thursday [27 Sept 2007] afternoon following a trial that relied heavily on the testimony of an undercover FBI informant who was known to jurors only as "Anna" and who presented evidence of conversations McDavid and two companions had about blowing up the Nimbus Dam, a U.S. Forest Service facility in Placerville and other targets.

Prosecutors will ask that the maximum 20-year prison sentence be imposed on McDavid. Sentencing is set for Dec. 6. McDavid will remain in custody. He has been locked up since he and two co-conspirators were arrested Jan. 13, 2006.

Lauren Weiner and Zachary Jenson were allowed to plead guilty to lesser charges and testified against McDavid. A status conference in connection with their sentences is scheduled Oct. 11.
