Utah ARA loses appeal, makes music video about prison
He referenced comedian Dave Chappelle when speaking about refusing to testify, but Jordan Halliday isn't laughing now.
The founder of an animal-rights group ordered to spend 10 months in federal prison for refusing to testify about attacks on mink farms has lost an appeal in his case.
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver on Friday affirmed the sentence handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Ted Stewart in 2010 to Halliday, who pleaded guilty to contempt of court for refusing to testify about attacking the mink farms.
By refusing to testify, he did not comply with an order by U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell to go before a grand jury.
