Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Peifer has named Craig Rosebraugh (the former spokesperson for the ELF) as a "material witness" in a recent Oregonian article. What this means is that they are going to try to subpeona him again for a grand jury. Just when it was thought the nightmare was over and Craig Rosebraugh could return to his life. Under the PATRIOT act they now have the power to arrest him and detain him indefinitely in secret. Many of the material witnesses arrested since the enactment of the PATRIOT act have now been held for months and possibly years, often in maximum security solitary confinement.
DO NOT mistake material witness status for a snitch. Material witnesses are individuals who are considered to possibly have information and are most likely to refuse to cooperate and/or flee. Quite the opposite of a snitch. Please be prepared to support Craig Rosebraugh again when/if they subpeona him successfully.
