Rebecca Rubin, Alleged Eco-Terrorist Faces Arson Charges

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) A woman who spent a decade as a fugitive from the largest ecoterrorism investigation in U.S. history is due in federal court in Oregon on conspiracy and arson charges.

Court records show 39-year-old Rebecca Rubin, a Canadian citizen, was to be arraigned Friday afternoon in U.S. District Court in Eugene.

Rubin turned herself in at the Canadian border with Washington last November.

A federal indictment accuses her of being a member of an ecoterrorism group known as The Family [BULLSHIT] based in Eugene, which investigators blame for 20 fires across the West from 1996 to 2001 that did $40 million damage.

Among the group's targets were a ski resort in Colorado, wild horse corrals in Oregon and Northern California, and lumber mills and U.S. Forest Service offices in Oregon.
