Mennonite found guilty after protest at Standing Rock


September 18, 2018

Dennis Lehmann has dedicated much of his life working for peace and justice. In February 2017, that dedication landed him in jail. A year and a half later, he finally appeared in court.

On Sept. 7, after a brief deliberation, a six-member Morton County, North Dakota, jury found the 65-year-old Freeman, South Dakota, native guilty of Class A misdemeanor charges of physical obstruction of a government function. Judge James Hill sentenced Lehmann to 90 days of unsupervised probation and ordered him to pay court fines. If he’s arrested for any reason within that period, Lehmann will have to serve five days in jail for his conviction.
