Anaconda Man Charged In Refuge Standoff Sentenced

(Portland, OR)  --  The Montana man charged with conspiracy to impede federal employees in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation will spend another year in jail.  Ryan Payne was sentenced to three years in prison in a Portland courtroom yesterday but a judge gave him credit for the two years he has already served.  Federal prosecutors accused Payne of being one of the leaders of the occupation in early 2016.  Payne will also pay ten-thousand-dollars in restitution in the case.
