A federal judge in Portland found eco-saboteur Rebecca Rubin guilty on Thursday of taking roles in a series of environmentally motivated firebombings and vandalism in Oregon, Colorado and California between 1998 and 2001.

Rubin, 40, a Canadian citizen who fled north of the U.S. border to live underground, tried to surrender to U.S. authorities in 2009, said her lawyer, Richard J. Troberman of Seattle. But there were holdups between Rubin’s lawyers and U.S. government prosecutors.

Prosecutors in California were adamant that Rubin must serve at least 30 years in prison unless she agreed to give up the names of her co-conspirators and offer other assistance to the government. But she steadfastly refused to turn over the names of any of her crime partners. (more…)

Green Scare defendant Rebecca Rubin is scheduled for a Change of Plea Hearing for 10/10/2013 at 10:00AM in Portland Federal Courtroom 12A before Chief Judge Ann L. Aiken.    Rebecca is alleged to have been a member of a group of environmental and animal rights activists accused of eco sabotage, and specifically, she has been accused of being involved in actions against BLM wild horse capture facilities that brutally rounded up wild mustangs from public lands and sold them for slaughter, an arson at the Vail Ski Resort in Vail, CO, and an action at US Forest Industries in Medford, OR.  Her last alleged action took place in 2001.   A Canadian citizen, Rubin voluntarily turned herself into federal authorities in January of 2013, 8 years after her alleged codefendants were apprehended and prosecuted.  She is believed to be entering into a non-cooperation plea agreement, though the exact terms of that agreement are not publicly available at this time.

The federal government allege that this cell of ELF and ALF activists were responsible for over 20 actions, including arsons, between 1996 to 2001 and caused over $40 million in damages.
