Lauren Weiner is a Government Informant
Lauren Weiner, Zachary Jenson, and Eric McDavid were arrested in
Auburn,CA as part of the government's Green Scare campaign on Jan 13, 2006,
and were charged with conspiracy to destroy property by means of fire or
While Zachary and Eric both maintian their innocence, eariler today
Lauren Weiner entered a guily plea to USC 18 371 or "conspiracy to commit an
offense or defraud the Unites States". This is a lesser conspiracy
charge than USC 18 844(n) which Lauren and her co-defendants were indicted
under. At this time Lauren's plea bargain has not been filed with the court,
though portions of it were read in today's hearing. According to
assistant United States Attorney Steve Lapham "the defendant agrees to cooperate
with the continuing investigation and prosecution of this case". This
confirms that Lauren Weiner is a government informant.
Sacramento Prisoner Support does not support government informants and
we will not support Lauren Weiner at anytime in the future.
Eric and Zachary are still in need of your support. We strongly
encourage everyone to write letters of support, donate, or raise awareness of
thier case. Other ideas for support can be viewed on their websites:
