Keith Sadler – Foreclosure Protesters Get 12 Months Probation


They call themselves the Stony Ridge seven. Today, they were all sentenced for their roles in fighting a foreclosure eviction earlier this month.

Each said they were standing up for injustice, fighting on behalf of the little guy and against big banks. The judge disagreed.

Jessica Angelov, Bryer Baumgartner, Nicholas Botek, John Kutsch, Daniel Orange, and Keith Sadler were each found guilty of criminal trespassing and obstructing official business. Each was sentenced to 12 months probation. Connie Smithengale, found guilty of only criminal trespassing, also got 1 year probation.

“Overall, I think the action was a resounding success in reaching people all over the country and the world with what we did and getting support from all of those people,” said Keith Sadler after the sentencing Sadler lost his home to foreclosure last year. He had until May 2 to leave, but he didn’t. Instead, he and the six others barricaded themselves inside the home until they were forcefully removed by sheriff’s deputies several days later.

    What a miscarriage of justice, Banks, Mortgage Co, Servicers, the system, and now even the Judges.

  2. I really recommend against this kind of protest. It is pointless just like bolting the door after the horse has bolted. You can accomplish the same thing by rescinding the mortgage and placing a cloud on title prior to judgment of foreclosure. See Cancel the Mortgage at This is a real legal bulldozer, and you will not be arrested or have to serve time on probation.
