Wawayanda Six members to report to jail

GOSHEN – Three of the members of the Wawayanda Six will be reporting to the Orange County Jail on Friday to start serving a seven day sentence for blocking the entrance to the CPV power plant under construction in the Town of Wawayanda.

Three paid their fines of $375, but the other three, Pramilla Malick, Madeline Shaw and actor James Cromwell, refused to and were sentenced to a week behind bars.

Meanwhile, their attorney, Michael Sussman, has filed an appeal of the Wawayanda town justice’s guilty verdict with the Appellate Division in Brooklyn, in hopes of having it reversed.

Opponents of the plant believe it will pollute the atmosphere and has already caused property values to decline in the area.

Cromwell, a long-time environmental activist, said the CPV plant is endemic of negative global impacts on the environment.
