Seattle, Washington, U.S. - Christopher McIntosh, 23, pleaded guilty in federal court to arson charges for his role in a January 20th, 2003 arson attack on a Seattle McDonald's. Christopher plead guilty as part of an agreement in which he will be sentenced to ten years in prison rather than facing a 30 year minimum if found guilty of terrorism charges. The action which resulted in $5,000 in damages was claimed on behalf of the Earth and Animal Liberation Fronts and was done in support of "our furry brothers." Four major Earth Liberation Front attacks in Washington state in the past two years have prompted the Building Industry Association of Washington, the state's homebuilders lobby, and the FBI to offer a $100,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of others who have committed actions on behalf of the Earth Liberation Front.
