SovCit failures – Cherron Phillips found guilty

Paper terrorism does not pay…

The closely watched trial lasted two days, after which Phillips was convicted of ten counts of retaliating against a federal official by filing false claims. She will be sentenced in October and could spend up to ten years in prison. Or, it’s possible she’ll only get probation. It’s hard to know at this point if Judge Michael J. Reagan will make an example of Phillips and give a “paper terrorist” a lengthy prison stay. The Chicago press will no doubt watch that sentencing just as closely as it watched the trial.
