First Prison Term Handed Down in Bundy Armed Standoff in Nevada

LAS VEGAS — A judge called a New Hampshire man a "bully vigilante" and sentenced him Wednesday to more than seven years in prison for his role organizing armed backers of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy after a standoff with U.S. agents in 2014.

Gerald "Jerry" DeLemus became the first person sentenced for his ties to the confrontation that became a rallying cry for those who want vast stretches of federal land in the U.S. West put under local control. Eighteen others are in custody.

DeLemus has been jailed for almost 16 months, so the sentence means the 62-year-old former U.S. Marine will spend about six more years behind bars.

Nothing like sitting before an UN-biased "Judge" (cough cough)

I hope they take this to the supreme court and it gets overturned.

 

The article goes on to state.

"Bundy, two of his sons and two other defendants are due for trial later this year. Six others, including two other Bundy sons, may not be tried until early next year."

What ever happened to a speedy trial and innocent until proven guilty.

Trump should drain the Nevada swamp too.
