The sentencing for the jailed journalist Barrett Brown, who took a plea agreement in April on three reduced counts and now faces a maximum of 8.5 years in prison, has been postponed. While it was originally scheduled for August 18th, the sentencing will now happen on Monday, October 6th, 2014 at 1:30 PM CST at the federal courthouse on 1100 Commerce St. in Dallas, Texas.
By that time he will have spent over two years behind bars—which is far beyond what’s sufficient to atone for the conduct that he takes responsibility for.
While you’re waiting for him to get out, why not read what he’s been writing lately, consider ordering some books for him, or send us a donation to help cover the associated costs of his legal situation.
