A Broome County man is one of four protesters serving sentences at Onondaga County Jail this week after being convicted of trespass counts in connection with an October demonstration.

James Clune of Binghamton and three other men were sentenced to 15 days in jail by DeWitt town judge Robert Jokl.

The judge had found Clune and the others guilty in an April 18 bench trial. They had been arrested at Hancock Field Air National Guard Base where they were protesting the use of armed unmanned drone aircraft overseas. Some of the drones are piloted remotely from the base near Syracuse.

Clune’s wife, Ann, told WNBF News her husband expects to be released from jail sometime Friday.
