Last December Jessica Reznicek beat with a sledge hammer on doors of the Northrup Grumman plant in Bellevue, NE near Offutt Air Force Base in protest of the company’s arms business.
On May 25, Jessica was found guilty of misdemeanor charges, and the next day District Judge Patricia Lamberti Sarpy sentenced Jessica to pay $5,000 in fines and restitution for her destruction of property charge and was sentenced to 72 days in jail, time served, for her trespass charge.
Jessica says in an email:
Despite Jess's repeated assurances that she was not going to pay any money to the (Unjust) Justice System and request for jail time instead of fines and restitution, Judge Lamberti ignored Jess' public promise' not to pay and sentenced Jess to pay close to $5000 in fines and restitution.
LIED TO...... $1,000 bond kept! We could not help but feel soiled and unclean as we left the court room. We were lied to! Surprise!!! We were told the special $1,000 cash bond Jess put up for her freedom last March would be returned to her in full after her trial. We were lied to. Judge Lamberti ordered Jess' bail money to be used for her fines and restitution.
Thank you's! Thanks to all the folks who supported Jess in this journey, especially Bill Quigley and Bob Sigler, her outstanding standby attorneys!
So as the situation stands, the people who got together and posted bond for Jessica are out $1,000. If you can help Jessica pay them back, she would really appreciate the help.
