A federal judge in Santa Barbara found 56-year-old peace
activist MacGregor Eddy guilty last week of trespassing at
Vandenberg Air Force Base at a protest in October 2005. Last
Thursday’s ruling came as no surprise after the judge dismissed
Eddy’s defense of necessity at a previous hearing in February; she
argued the U.S. is in violation of the Nuremberg Principles. The
professional nurse faces up to six months in prison and $5,000 in
fines, to be determined at a sentencing hearing in mid-June.
