Two Vernon animal activists received reduced sentences after originally being sentenced to 15 and 10 days in jail. According to the New Jersey Herald, Catherine McCartney and Danielle Varon were arrested in October for stepping over the boundaries of the designated demonstration area at Whittingham Wildlife Management Area in Fredon.
Instead of jail time both women were allowed to apply for the Sheriff's Labor Assistance Program, which is a structured alternative to incarceration. The program requires those in it to perform moderate levels of manual labor.
In addition to both women having their sentences reduced to five days on SLAP, their fines were reduced from $1,000 to $300.
