The first trial against the members of Empty Cages was held on January 15th, 2016 in the district court of Västmanland. A vigil was held outside the court house before the trial began by 60 animal rights activists. We confessed to our actions, but denied that we broke the law. Two weeks later, we were found guilty of stealing two pigs and eight hens. Martin was sentenced to one month in prison. The rest of the group received a conditional sentence and a fine.
