Catherine Morris in Jail

Catherine Morris Civil Disobediance

Yesterday Catherine, along with the LACW and interns, went to court for her sentencing. Catherine gave a very passionate statement about the real crimes commited in Iraq, and how the military budget hurts the poor back home. The prosecution had recomended a fifteen day sentence, and although Catherine stated that she was fully prepared to serve a fifteen day sentence the judge sentenced her to seven days in jail. Catherine, never one to procrastinate, left the court and walked down to the U.S. Marshal’s office where she turned herself in. We are hoping to have her home next Tuesday, the 9th which is also the anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki.
