Peter Watts Sentenced, No Jail Time

Canadian author Peter Watts, found guilty of resisting a US Customs and Border Protection officer, has been sentenced to a 60-day jail term which will be suspended after payment of court assessments: $1,000 court costs, $500 worth of fines, and other fees. Watts initially feared a harsher sentence; the prosecutor recommended 180 days in jail with 60 days suspended after payment of $1,600 in fines and fees. Now Watts will not serve jail time. However, due to his felony conviction, he will be unable to travel to the United States.
