One year after the government indicted two activists for an Animal Liberation Front release of 650 mink in Utah, the first to be sentenced – William “BJ” Viehl – has arrived at prison.
In February, Viehl was sentenced to two years in prison – quadruple the sentence recommended by the prosecutor. After two months awaiting transfer, Viehl has been designated to a low security prison in Los Angeles county, the same prison where SHAC 7 prisoner Jacob Conroy completed his sentence. With “good time”, he expects to be released in the fall of this year.
Below is Viehl’s new address. Please distribute widely, and write him a letter of support today:
