Casey's Mom at Bat for US. Wins!

“We reverse and remand for a new trial, however, because appellant was convicted of a crime that does not exist.”
With these words, the conviction of Cindy Sheehan was struck down by the US Court of Appeals. Cindy's son Casey was killed in the occupation of Iraq following the second US/Iraq War. She was arrested while petitioning the Government at the gates of the White House.

In its reversal of the lower court's ruling, the Appeals Court acknowledged that Sheehan and her co-defendants were "prevented from offering a viable defense." Cindy Sheehan has effectively re-secured a portion of our Freed of Speech, both in the courtroom and on the streets.
