A grandmother of three was sentenced to one year at the Onondaga County jail Thursday in DeWitt Town Court after she was found guilty of violating an order of protection while protesting at Hancock Air Base.

Mary Anne Grady-Flores, 58, of Ithaca, was charged with second-degree criminal contempt on Feb. 13, 2013 after an order of protection was issued, barring Grady-Flores from going near Col. Earl Evans, the mission support group commander at the 174th Attack Wing of the New York Air National Guard, on Oct. 25, 2012. The protection order was valid for one year...

She went to trial on May 15 and found guilty on the charge....

A pre-sentence investigation report conducted by the Onondaga County Probation Department suggested Grady-Flores' sentence be a conditional discharge, a suggestion that Gideon stated to be "devoid of any appropriate substance which to intelligently base its conclusion," noting that Grady-Flores has twice refused to pay fines and surcharges imposed by the court.

Noting that he saw incarceration as the only option to send a message, Gideon said a conditional discharge or probation would only allow Grady-Flores to "thumb her nose at the law once again."

In addition to the year in jail, Grady-Flores was fined $1,000, a state surcharge of $205 and ordered to submit a DNA sample at the cost of $50.

Hippies trying to relive “glory” when people paid attention to them.

Some people never grow up.
