US v. Christianson, No. 09-1526

By FindLaw Staff on November 09, 2009 3:43 PM

Convictions and sentences of defendants, members of the Earth Liberation Front which has been identified by the FBI as domestic eco-terrorist group, for destroying government property is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in holding that defendants' conduct caused the Forest Service to suffer a loss in its loss-amount calculation; and 2) defendant's argument that he's not the sort of person who should be labeled a terrorist and that the terrorism enhancement does not apply unless his crime transcended national boundaries is without merit.
