2010 Vigil Prisoners of Conscience

Four activists crossed the line during this year's vigil. David Omandi, a member of the Catholic Workers from Los Angeles and Father Louis Vitale, a Francisan priest from California pleaded "no contest" and were sentenced to the maximum sentence of 6 month in prison. Fr Vitale also crossed last year and in previous years. Chris Spicer from the White Rose Catholic Worker in Chicago and Nancy Smith from the Hudon River Valley in New York returned for trial on January 5, 2011. Nancy pleaded "no contest" and Chris pleaded not guilty, both were sentenced to 6 months in prison.
