(Rochester, NY) - Animal rights activist Adam Durand was sentenced Tuesday for trespassing on Wegmans egg farm in Wayne County.
He’ll go to jail for six months and pay a $1500 fine.
He went into the farm to film a documentary, claiming hens were kept in horrible conditions.
At sentencing, Judge Dennis Kehoe told Durand that Wegmans is the true victim and he wishes he could seize the documentary to keep Durand from benefiting from his crimes.
