James Cromwell Sentenced to Jail for Not Paying Protest Fines

James Cromwell has been sentenced to seven days in jail after he refused to pay fines associated with an arrest during a protest.

The 77-year-old Oscar-nominated actor, best known for his work in films like Babe and L.A. Confidential as well as the American Horror Story series, was among six protestors who were arrested for a sit-in at a power plant in upstate New York.

Cromwell and the others, who refer to themselves as the “Wawayanda Six,” protested the opening of a natural gas power plant being built in the town. It’s set to open in February 2018 and environmental activists say it will have a negative impact on the environment.

“If we don’t stay together, nothing will change,” Cromwell told the Times Herald-Record of Middletown. “Power to the people.”
