Submission + - Peter Watts sentenced - no jail time 1

shadowbearer writes: SF writer Peter Watts, a canadian citizen, whose story we have read about before in these pages, was sentenced three days ago in a Port Huron, MI court.

  There's not a lot of detail in the story, and although he is still being treated like a terrorist (cannot enter or pass thru the US, DNA samples) he was not ordered to do any time in jail, and is free and has returned home to his family. The judge in the case was, I believe, as sympathetic as the legal system would allow him to be.
