POULSBO -- A Roman Catholic nun from Poulsbo has been convicted along with two other nuns in federal court in Denver of defacing a missile silo by swinging hammers and painting crosses on it with their blood.
Sisters Jackie Hudson, 68, of Poulsbo and Ardeth Platte, 66, and Carol Gilbert, 55, of Baltimore were arrested Oct. 6 after breaking into a Minuteman III missile silo site in Colorado. They were charged with interfering with the nation's defense and causing property damage of more than $1,000.
They were convicted Monday, and sentencing was set for July 25. They each could get up to 30 years in prison, although the lead prosecutor said that was unlikely.
