Grand Jury Resister Jordan Halliday Taken Into Custody

Jordan Halliday taken into custody early for giving an interview.

Exact details are unknown, but yesterday Jordan Halliday was taken into custody on an apparent bail violation for conducting an interview with vegan and straight edge clothing company Motive. Halliday’s bail conditions require he “not associate with ELF, ALF, or vegan straightedge animal liberation groups or members” (that is not an error or an exaggeration: In effect, Halliday was barred from contact with vegans who do not use drugs). Rather than turn himself in at a future date to begin serving his 10-month sentence, he must begin the sentence now.

Halliday was sentenced to 10-months for Criminal Contempt after refusing to give testimony to a grand jury investigating the release of mink from two fur farms in Utah. The raids were claimed by the Animal Liberation Front. Recently, Halliday lost his appeal and was ordered to serve 10-months in federal prison.
