An 85-year-old nun and two Army veterans sent to prison after breaking into the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge did not commit sabotage and should be re-sentenced, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday. The decision overturns the sabotage convictions but upholds convictions for damaging government property. The appeals court directed the trial court to re-sentence the three in light of the reduced charges and the time they have already served. All three have been jailed since May 2013, Reuters reports.
