James Cromwell Sentenced to Jail for Plant Protest Near his Home

If you’ll recall, James Cromwell has already been the warden of a jail.  Well, a fictional jail, The Green Mile.  So now he’s going to have a chance to actually see the big house.  It’ll only be for seven days but jail is still jail.  The Oscar-nominated actor has been sentenced to jail for refusing to pay fines related to his arrest at a protest at a New York power plant.  The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports a town judge in Wawayanda on Thursday sentenced the 77-year-old Cromwell to seven days in jail

Cromwell was among a group found guilty of obstructing traffic at a December 2015 sit-in at the site of a natural gas-fired power plant being built in Wawayanda. The protesters say the plant threatens the environment.  Cromwell says he hopes that people can see the injustice of the jail sentence and that others may be inspired to join the pickets. Cromwell lives in a neighboring town. and has appeared in more than 50 films.

It’s not that I don’t think he should have been sentenced because the law is a law but it’s just funny to me that Cromwell will be sitting in jail for a week.  I mean, he’s James Cromwell. This is a guy who was in the movie The Babe.   There are definitely bigger fish to fry out there.

Carry on.
