Eighteen of us from Stuarts Draft are nearing Burlington to be with our brother at his sentencing, which will be happening at 2:30 this afternoon. We don't expect to be able to talk to Ken, but we will see him in the courtroom, and hopefully hear him speak to the court.
Below is an excerpt from the letter to the judge he recently finished:
"If it is true that my actions flow out of my faith in Jesus, and from my deeply held moral believes — and I sincerely think they do — then it must follow that whatever judgment is being brought against me by the United States of America, is judgment on my faith and conscience and deeply help moral beliefs,"
"I was faced with a woman in distress who needed help to protect her daughter from what seemed to be an inhumane court decree."
