(June 23, 2006) — Trespasser gets stay of sentence

Rochester Democrat & Chronicle

Adam Durand, the Rochester man sentenced to six months in Wayne County Jail for illegally entering Wegmans Food Markets Inc. egg farm in Wolcott, Wayne County, has been released pending an appeal.

Durand was found guilty of three counts of criminal trespassing in May and began serving his jail sentence May 16. He has been granted a stay of his sentence from the state Supreme Court Appellate Division and will be out on bail until his appeal hearing.

The animal activist had illegally entered the egg farm to film the hens' conditions, which Durand and fellow members of the group Compassionate Consumers believe to be inhumane.

Wegmans has said that its animal care standards at the 700,000-hen farm exceed state and federal requirements.

    There basically aren't any.
