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 explosives.

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.
Lauren’s Plea Agreement, which details her cooperation with law enforcement and government prosecutors, can be found at  http://www.indybay.org/uploads/renplea.pdf
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:  http://www.supporteric.org and  http://www.supportzach.org
