CFP: It only took approximately 235 attacks against pro-life groups over the last 12 months, but the DOJ has finally made some arrests.
Two Florida residents, Caleb Freestone, 27 and Amber-Smith-Stewart 23, were indicted by a Federal Grand Jury in the Middle District of Florida, for allegedly spray painting threats on pro-life pregnancy centers.
The pair is charged with targeting pro-life facilities in Hollywood, Hialeah and Winter Haven, Florida.
The spray-painted threats included:
“IF ABORTIONS AREN’T SAFE THAN NEITHER ARE YOU”
“WE’RE COMING FOR YOU”
“WE ARE EVERYWHERE”
“YOUR TIME IS UP.”
The indictment alleges that the pair violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrance Act, commonly referred to as “FACE” or the “Access Act.” FACE prohibits violence, threatening, damaging and obstructive conduct intended to injure, interfere or intimidate with the right to seek, obtain, or provide reproductive health services.
If convicted, Freestone and Smith Stewart face a maximum of 12 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release and fines up to $350,000.
The FBI Tampa Field Office, with assistance from the Miami Police Department investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lisa Thelwell for the Middle District of Florida and trial attorneys Sanjay Patel and Laura-Kate Bernstein of the Civil Rights Division’s Criminal Section are prosecuting the case.
The vandalism of these clinics and associated threats are frightening, but an even more extreme and organized group has been attacking pro-life facilities. more
