"Sentencing Set for Activists Who Broke Into Tennessee Nuclear Site"

"An elderly nun and two other peace activists will be sentenced in September on their convictions for damaging a Tennessee defense facility where enriched uranium for nuclear bombs is stored, a federal judge said on Thursday."

"U.S. District Court Judge Amul Thapar also said he would decide on May 14 whether the three activists - Sister Megan Rice, who was 82 at the time of the incident, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed - will be held in custody until sentencing.

Thapar set sentencing for September 23 in Knoxville.

The activists were taken into custody after jurors found them guilty on Wednesday. They remained in custody after a short appearance in court on Thursday."
