PHOENIX (AP) — A judge has found three immigrant rights advocates guilty of failing to follow police orders during a protest last year over Arizona’s controversial immigration law and a crackdown.


All could face up to four months in jail and a maximum $700 fine when they are sentenced Aug. 23 by Justice of the Peace David Seyer.

The latest verdicts were handed down against immigrant-rights group leader Salvador Reza and the Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Boston-based Unitarian Universalist Association.

I hope the Rev. Peter Morales considers his arrest for protesting the Arizona immigration laws a badge of honor, for it is.
