First Female War Objector Imprisoned in US

Katherine Jashinski is an imprisoned Conscientious Objector whose application for a discharge was denied by the Army after almost 18 months.

She was then court-martialed for refusing to train with weapons. In court on Tuesday, May 23, Katherine was acquitted of the more serious charge of missing movement by design, but pled guilty to refusal to obey a legal order.

She received a bad conduct discharge and was sentenced to 120 days confinement, with credit for 53 days already served (at Fort Benning), and 20 days off for good behavior. At the time of her sentencing on May 23, Katherine had 47 days of confinement remaining.

After serving her sentence she will return to school at the University of Texas at Austin and continue her work with the newly founded Austin GI Rights Hotline. – freekath
