Billy Cottrell: Earth Liberation Front snitch

Los Angeles, California - On the night of Aug. 22, 2003, over 125 hummers and SUVs were burned or vandalised on behalf of the Earth Liberation Front, near Los Angeles. On November 19, 2004, William "Billy" Cottrell, was convicted of setting the fires. This happened despite his attempts to lay blame for the more serious charges on his accused accomplices. Both his lawyer and the LA Times believe that Billy is actually a victim of Aspurgers Syndrome which is like mild form of autism that would lend creedence to Billy's claims of innocence. Some wonder whether Billy's case of Aspurgers also explain why he turned his former friends into the police and named their names while under oath. The FBI believes that his alleged co-conspirators have fled the country.
