Court finds Canadian woman guilty in border incident

By Judy Harrison, BDN Staff

A federal judge Monday found a Canadian woman guilty of interfering with federal law enforcement officials earlier this month at the Calais border crossing, after a three-hour, jury-waived trial.

U.S. Magistrate judge Margaret Kravchuk will sentence Patricia Eve Strong, 27, later today.

Strong was arrested on Thursday, June 10, when she refused to be fingerprinted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the new Calais border crossing. According to court documents, Strong was on a bus bound for Bangor when she was removed and placed in custody for giving evasive answers to questions and having no visible means of support.

She has not said why she refused to be fingerprinted.
