Christopher Pentico, who was recently convicted of trespass on public property, will be sentenced Monday.
The state government's actions involving Pentico are difficult to rationalize. I've spent a fair amount of time on the phone trying to get state officials to explain it to me, and I have to say the answers are not very satisfying for those of us who are concerned about freedom and liberty.
The summary of what I have figured out is this: He was banned from visiting three state office buildings -- including the governor's office and the legislative annex -- because he's tenacious. He's not dangerous.
Pentico was charged with trespass when he disobeyed the directive to stay away. I'll have more on this in a couple of days.
For now, I wanted to provide some background about this case in response to a number of inquiries. Additional information and details about events to coincide with Pentico's sentencing are available here.
