MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors are objecting to a radio host’s request for a new trial after he was convicted of vandalism for tearing down barricades on federal land in Montrose County.

The Montrose Daily Press reported Wednesday (https://tinyurl.com/kc36dfl ) the U.S. Attorney’s Office argues that David Justice’s motion for a new trial is based on an inaccurate statement of the law.

Justice, whose given name is Stanley Hugh Anderson, was convicted in September after damaging Bureau of Land Management property at the Cushman Creek Trail.

Justice argues the road is under county and state jurisdiction, not federal.

He could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 at his sentencing hearing scheduled for Jan. 23.
