Skip to comments.1999 MSU Arsonist Sentenced Today
Posted on 02/05/2009 6:57:58 PM PST by magslinger
The government says a 20-year prison sentence for a woman who committed arson at Michigan State University would be the toughest punishment ever in a case of so-called eco-terrorism. Marie Mason is due in federal court at 9 a.m. today.
The explosion and fire at Michigan State's Agriculture Hall in 1999 was a protest against genetically modified crops. Damage exceeded $1 million. Prosecutors want a 20-year prison sentence for the 47-year-old Cincinnati woman.
Mason's lawyer says that would be extreme. Mason has admitted other acts from 1999 through 2003, including fires at homes under construction in southeastern Michigan and Indiana. Her ex-husband is in prison for nine years. Two other people will be sentenced for minor roles.
Thanks for posting. Interesting.
This has the sentence:
Received almost 22 years.
5 seconds lol

/22 years ping
Well now, that seems too small a sentence, but you know what?
Your ping brought the first smile of the day to me.
At least one slime ball is getting a little justice.
Better than many sentences we have seen handed down over the years for this form of terrorism.
Yes, although I must say in the last years the eco-terrorists have been sentenced to hefty time.
Thanks. I looked but didn’t find the sentence. The MSM seems uninterested.
That post was intended for happinesswithoutpeace and John W.
22 Years sounds about right, good for Judge Paul Maloney. The Family (eco-terrorists prosecuted in OR and WA got off with much lighter sentences, it’s a shame this judge didn’t hear those cases.
Twelve members of The Family previously sentenced.
Stanislas Gregory Meyerhoff - (5-23-07) - 13 years
Kevin Tubbs ----------------- (5-24-07) - 12 years, 7 months
Chelsea Dawn Gerlach ------- (5-25-07) - 9 years
Darren Todd Thurston---------(5-29-07) - 3 years, 1 month
Suzanne Nicole Savoie--------(5-31-07) - 4 years, 3 months
Sarah Kendall Tankersley-----(5-31-07) - 3 years, 10 months
Joyanna Lynn Zacher---------(6-01-07) - 7 years, 8 months
Nathan Fraser Block----------(6-01-07) - 7 years, 8 months
Daniel Gerard McGowan-----(6-04-07) - 7 years
Jonathan Paul--------------------(8-01-07) - 4 years, 3 months
Briana Waters-------------------(6-19-08) - 6 years
Jennifer Kolar-------------------(7-18-08) - 5 years
Lacey Phillabaum-----------(8-19-08) - 3 years
Wait, no I don't.
ahhhh.... thanks for that
In federal prison, 20 years means 20 years - she won’t be any kind of terrorist when she gets out!
You bet and I just noticed it should be thirteen and not twelve, I didn’t add Lacey Phillabaum to the count.
A Gray Panther, maybe.
Bet she won’t be grinning at age 67!
Grey something... gray mouse maybe?
I thought you might be interested in this since you posted the thread re: her husband's sentencing.
Arson can be a life sentence.
The b!tch should be happy with her sentence.
She cost me,personally, money.
20 years is too lenient
probably will actually serve around 5
it means 20 except on appeals forever and O might commute the sentence of course
I remember when that happened. As far as the crook goes, good riddance to bad rubbish.
Thanks. I vote to let them serve their sentences in Guantanamo.
Double the prison time of all involved and I still wouldn’t be satisfied.
A distinct possibility. 0 has demonstrated a fondness for terrorists both foreign and domestic.
Skank should fit right in with the dykes in prison-— good riddance, terrorist scum.
