"Nato 3 Convicted in Chicago"
2014-02-10 from the "United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC)" [www.UNACpeace.org]
The NATO 3, who were entrapped by undercover agents during the NATO protests in Chicago in May, 2012 were convicted in a Chicago court room of 2 counts of mob action. The prosecution wanted them to be convicted of terrorism charges, which could have sent them to prison for up to 40 years. The terrorism charges were rejected by the jury.
UNAC helped organize the anti-NATO protests in Chicago in May, 2012, during which these three young men were arrested after being set up by two police provacateurs. The three men, known as the NATO 3, are Brent Betterly, Brian Jacob Church, and Jared Chase. They were originally charged with 11 felony counts, including material support for terrorism, conspiracy to commit terrorism, possession of an incendiary device (four counts), conspiracy to commit arson, solicitation to commit arson, attempted arson, and unlawful use of a weapon (two counts). A support group formed to defend the three. The acquittal on the most serious terrorism charges should be seen as a victory for our movement; these terrorism charges carried possible sentences of up to 40 years in prison. However, the three were convicted on lesser charges and still face significant prison time. Please continue your support for the NATO 3.
