St. Patrick’s Four Acquitted Of Conspiracy.
In what their legal advisor Bill Quigley called a “major victory”, four peace activists, known as the St. Patrick’s Four were acquitted on conspiracy charges on Monday. Clare and Teresa Grady, Peter DeMott, and Daniel Burns were the first peace activists charged with conspiracy since the Vietnam War. They were arrested in March 2003 after spilling their own blood at a military recruitment station. They were convicted of two misdemeanor counts, for trespassing and damaging a government facility.
