Kokesh receives sentence from Judge: “I will be happy to refrain from civil disobedience”


On Friday, Adam Kokesh, an anarchist gun-rights activist, was handed down his sentence from a July 4th incident last year when he uploaded a Youtube video of himself with a loaded shotgun near the White House.

“I protest because I believe it is everyone’s right,” he said, standing next to his attorney. “I made an error in judgement. I am here because I take responsibility. I will be happy to refrain from civil disobedience.”

According to the Washington Post, Judge Patricia A. Broderick said she sentenced Kokesh to a year in jail, but suspended the jail time in favor of probation because he had adhered to Court orders since his release in November. Kokesh was also credited the 120 days he had spent in jail.
