Mistrial Against Environmentalist
(wgvu) - A federal judge declares a mistrial Wednesday
in the case of a radical environmentalist who was charged with
teaching others how to make Molotov cocktails.
Rod Coronado gave his demonstration only a few hours after a $50
million arson fire in August 2003 destroyed an unfinished condo
project nearby.
The 41-year-old Coronado served nearly five years in federal
prison for his involvement in a 1992 arson at a Michigan State
University mink research facility.
Coronado was known for helping sink whaling ships and destroying
fur farms. He renounced violence last year.
The government hasn't decided whether to seek another trial.
