NEWS FROM ARIZONA; Walt Staton was found guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court of knowingly littering on a national wildlife refuge. A Web designer and volunteer with the humanitarian group No More Deaths, Staton faces up to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine. He was cited Dec. 4 for littering when U.S. Border Patrol agents spotted him placing unopened gallon containers of water in the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge southwest of Tucson.
What the heck is going on? Doesn't the U.S. Attorney's office have higher priority cases to prosecute?
