Six MONTHS in jail for a person who handed out LEAFLETS…WTF?!?!?

Mark Schmidter, a 64-year-old roofing contractor, was found guilty of two counts of indirect criminal contempt for handing out leaflets on June 29 seeking to sway members of juries and for doing so outside of specially marked “free speech zones” created for Anthony protesters and supporters.

Judge Belvin Perry sentenced Schmidter to 151 days in jail after a brief trial.
