Two Years for DeChristopher

(KCPW News) Environmental activist Tim DeChristopher will spend two years in prison for disrupting a federal oil and gas lease auction back in 2008, after a federal judge sentenced him Tuesday. The 29-year-old University of Utah student placed phony bids on oil and gas parcels near Arches and Canyonlands National Parks as a way of protesting the controversial auction. As KCPW’s Whittney Evans reports, DeChristopher’s supporters say justice has not been served.
