Attorneys for the jailed environmental activist Tim DeChristopher appeared in a Denver courtroom on Thursday to challenge DeChristopher’s two-year sentence for posing as a bidder to prevent oil and gas drilling on thousands of acres of public land. DeChristopher’s attorneys argued he should be released for stopping an auction that was later deemed to have been in violation of government rules.
