Guilty Pleas in Eco-Arson

Two women entered guilty pleas yesterday for the 2001 firebombing of the UW's Center for Urban Horticulture. They promised to cooperate in the federal investigation of a series of arsons and attacks on property by the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front. As part of plea agreements, federal prosecutors will recommend lighter sentences than if they had been convicted of all charges -- 5-7 years and 3-5 years, rather than 30 years or more. Earth Liberation Front members plead guilty in 2001 firebombing, Seattle Times, Oct. 5, 2006.
