A year after FBI raided Alhambra home, activist Carlos Montes enters guilty plea

Alhambra resident Carlos Montes, a Chicano activist in the 1960s who more recently has been active in anti-war and pro-immigrant rallies, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one count of perjury as part of a bargain where three other counts were dropped. Last May, the FBI and local law enforcement raided Montes' Alhambra home and arrested him on gun possession charges. He faced up to 22 years in prison for possessing an unregistered firearm with a past felony conviction in what supporters said was an unfair targetining by federal authorities.

The Pasadena Star News reports that he was sentenced to three years formal probation and 180 hours of community service, credited for one day served in jail and prohibited from possessing any weapons.

Supporters from the Committee to Stop FBI Repression declared this a “victory for Carlos Montes and movement against political repression.”  

A trial had the danger of him being convicted of four felonies with jail time and the additional old felony – a total of 5 felonies. At this point Carlos is out of jail, will continue to organize against repression, for public education, against U.S.-led wars and for immigrant rights. He is already planning to attend the protest at the Republican National Convention on August 27, 2012 in Tampa, Florida.
