Two Eco-terror Suspects
by Associated Press
EUGENE, Ore. - Two people arrested earlier this month on ecoterrorism charges were arraigned in federal court Monday.
Kevin Tubbs faces up to 20 years if convicted of a 1998 arson at a Washington state Agriculture Department office in Olympia.
And Chelsea Gerlach faces up to 25 years. That's if she is convicted of toppling a Bonneville Power Administration transmission tower in 1999.
Both pleaded not guilty.
Their attorneys said they would ask for the two to be released because there is a lack of hard evidence.
They say the only evidence the government has provided so is the statements of two informants who took part in the attacks.
But a federal prosecutor replied he would begin providing more than a thousand pages of evidence by the end of the week.
Chelsea Gerlach is 28 and is from Portland. Kevin Tubbs is 36 and lived in Springfield. They pleaded not guilty.
