Details of Grand Jury Hearing Released and Contempt of Court Hearing Tomorrow

Leah-Lynn Plante returns to court tomorrow and is expected to be jailed for her refusal to testify before a federal grand jury investigating the anarchist movement. The other two subpoenaed, Matt Duran and Katherine “KteeO” Olejnik, are already in federal prison for their refusal.

Plante appeared before the grand jury on September 13, where she was asked about vandalism at the Federal Court House in Seattle on May 1, and about her association with Dennison Williams. Plante acknowledged knowing Williams, but on the advice of her attorney asserted her Fifth Amendment rights not to answer any questions.

Williams had been subpoenaed to an earlier grand jury and, together with Plante, released a statement pledging that they wouldn’t cooperate. Williams subpoena was then dropped.

Asked about the most recent hearings, Williams commented:

“Leah’s transcript confirms my and others’ suspicions that the reason for my subpoena being dropped is that I am a target of the grand jury investigation. I applaud Leah in staying strong through a process that has been terrifying and has uprooted her life. I am not discouraged by the disclosure of our acquaintance as it is clearly evident by the pictures we took with the ever charming Clyde, the mini-dachshund, accompanying our statement of intention to resist the Grand Jury. I am encouraged by her statement of future intentions and am happy to stand alongside her any time as an enemy of the state.”

  2. please let us know what this experience is like. Welcome to george orwells inner circle.

  3. I have seen this happen before (not personally, but I have friends that have been railroaded similarly), yet it decries that people held without proper evidence and rounded up due to non-violent ideology and a virtual witch hunt that removes what shining justice from the record of a Nation of Free People that once lived their lives in happiness expressing Life through Inalienable Rights. I hope that our Nation examines her heavy hand that is suffocating innocent people and their heavy boot that enforces unnecessary and often political stomps that are politically driven and targets any group that wishes not to conform to the Status Quo and in deference to their non-violent and peaceful approach to living they suffer and will continue until the Constitution is restored to her straight, untwisted, and balanced beauty. I hope we all see repression lifted and allowance for those to live their lives as they see fit as long as they don’t encroach upon other’s Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness.
