Update about Nicole

On June 20th, Nicole appeared before Judge Larry Burns in the U.S. District Court of Southern California for her scheduled sentencing hearing (in February of 2016, Nicole entered into a non-cooperating plea agreement in which she pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Violate the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act). Unfortunately though at her sentencing hearing, Judge Burns rejected the plea deal that Nicole’s lawyers and the prosecution had agreed to. He expressed that he was not inclined to accept the amount of prison time being requested, due to the severity of the “terror-related acts.” Her next hearing is scheduled for July 5th.
