A second participant in the early 2016 occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Reserve in central Oregon received a prison sentence on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, from U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown. Darryl Thorn will spend a year and a half in federal prison followed by three years supervised release. For more on this see this article by Conrad Wilson posted at the website of Seattle-based KUOW. Mr. Thorn is the second preserve occupier to be sentenced to prison within a week. On November 16, 2017, Judge Brown sentenced Duane Ehmer to a year and a day in prison as noted in this post. The occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Preserve began on January 2, 2016, and ended on Day 41--February 11, 2016. A library of articles about that occupation may be found here.
