War Tax Resister to Be Sentenced

Bangor -

BANGOR – Long time war tax resister and peace advocate Frank Donnelly will appear for sentencing because of his war tax resistance at 9am on June 14 in Federal Court in Bangor. Donnelly, who pled guilty in November, 2009, for under-reporting his gross income on tax returns for 2002, 2003, and 2004, faces up to three years in prison.

A rally in support of Donnelly is planned for 8:45 AM on that morning outside the Federal Court House and Post Office on Harlow Street in Bangor. A statement by Donnelly following the sentencing will take place later that day outside the Federal Building. The time of Donnelly’s statement is tentatively set for 3 PM, but it may be delayed to later in the afternoon if the sentencing hearing has not finished by that time.

The 8:45 AM rally will include brief speeches by Donnelly’s supporters. Then many will go into the court room for at least part of his sentencing hearing before federal judge John Woodcock.
