Three SHAC activists, Kevin Kjonaas, Lauren Gazzola, and Jacob Conroy, received sentences in the SHAC 7 trial in Trenton, NJ yesterday. With over 100 in attendence, the court overflowed with activists in support of the defendants. Notably, the presiding Judge, Judge Thompson, spoke of hundreds of letters received seeking her leniency in the trial.

Kevin Kjonaas, the former president of SHAC, was sentenced to six years. SHAC’s campaign coordinator, Lauren Gazzola, received a sentence of four years and four months while Jacob Conroy, the group’s website coordinator, received a four-year sentence. Additionally, the fourth defendant to be sentenced was the organization SHAC itself. SHAC is ordered to pay restitution of $1 million; however, the group’s lawyer argues the group is now defunct. Unofficial representatives of the defendants claim that all convictions will be appealed.

Still remaining to be sentenced are Joshua Harper, Andrew Stepanian, and Darius Fullmer. Joshua Harper will be sentenced September 13th while Andrew Stepanian and Darius Fullmer will be sentenced Tuesday, September 19th.

    How can someone be tried in court for something where first of all they were doing “good deeds”, secondly they
    did not do anything themselves. This is from information I discovered recently, and it disheartens me….. WHAT WE APPEAR TO HAVE GOT HERE IS A SICK USA GOVERNMENT.

    How would the people making “violent” films or video-games be any differently charged than this SHAC7 group?
    The fact is SHAC7 is not even violent, from the case facts I reviewed thus far it appears as though they speak on levels of DEFENSE.

    If someone slaps “rosie” because they were fueled by the “o’reilly factor”, are you going to charge o’reilly? The point is the case against the SHAC7 should be dropped out-right.
