Judge denies bond for Y-12 activists

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The three nuclear activists convicted of breaking into and defacing Y-12 will have to wait in jail until their sentencing.

On Wednesday, Greg Boetje-Obed, Sister Megan Rice and Michael Walli were found guilty of sabotage and vandalism for a destructive break-in last summer. They are being held in Blount Co. Jail.

Their sentencing is set for Sept. 23.

Outside the courthouse, protestors cathered sing and praying. They say they can't believe the three will be jailed with violent criminals.
