After an eight weeks court case for the open rescue of chickens and ducks, Wayne was found guilty of one count of felony conspiracy to commit trespass and two misdemeanour trespass charges, for entering the chicken supplier Sunrise Farms. On the charges related to the duck farm, the jury did not come to an unanimous decision.
The court case was a massive overreach by the justice system, banning Wayne and his two codefendants from talking to the press and even from mentioning why they had taken action to rescue animals in the farms. No mention of animal welfare was allowed.
It is also important to mention that, after multiple failed cases against him, prosecution decided to drop the burglary and theft charges in favour of conspiracy to trespass, as it was a more likely guilty outcome. This shows that their “crime” was a lot less important than their thirst for “punishment”.
Wayne is scheduled to receive his sentencing on the 30th of November, and will be spending the month in jail. You can write to him at:

Needless to say that you should not mention any illegal activities in your letters, for the good of Wayne but also for your own safety! Write on white paper only and use white envelopes too, colour paper is apparently VERY BAD for the prison system, imagine if someone had a little fun!
