James Cromwell Sentenced to Jail for Refusing to Pay an Environmental Protest Fine. The actor was charged with obstructing traffic during a protest in 2015.

Cromwell refused to pay a $375 fine for obstructing traffic when he and other protesters, held a sit-in at a natural gas power-plant protest in Wawayanda, New York. The site is operated by Competitive Power Ventures

On December 18, 2015, Cromwell and five other activists, staged a sit in causing a traffic jam on Route 6 in Wawayanda, New York. During their trial, held in April, the protesters, argued that their actions were justified because emissions from the power plant can cause irreversible damage to the surrounding environment.
