Peace activists receive prison sentences for submarine base protest by Dennis Sadowski, Catholic News Service, Nov. 12

Cleveland — Two of the seven Kings Bay Plowshares peace activists received prison sentences Nov. 12 for entering a Georgia naval base and symbolically damaging weapons systems in 2018.

U.S. District Judge Lisa Godbey Wood handed down a 14-month prison sentence to Carmen Trotta, a Catholic Worker from New York, while Clare Grady of Ithaca, New York, was sentenced to a year and a day in prison following dual three-hour video court hearings.

The hearings in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia in Brunswick had been delayed several times because of the coronavirus pandemic.
