Michael Sykes

Michael Sykes
According to the Michigan DOC, Michael was paroled on January 3, 2013.

Michael Sykes is an 18-year-old anarchist from Lambertville, MI, currently serving a prison sentence for eco-related acts of property destruction, committed while he was a minor. He was convicted of setting fire to two homes under construction, and accused of attempting to cut down a utility pole, burning down other homes under construction, and setting fire to a Kroger’s semi-trailer.

He was tried as an adult and is currently serving a 4-10 year prison sentence with somewhere between $200,000 and $400,000 in restitution. While Michael was 17 at the time of the alleged crimes, he was tried as an adult.  His motivation was to interfere with sprawl, because he “was tired of seeing all the forest being destroyed.”
