PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A federal judge has promised to revoke Oregon refuge occupier Jason Patrick’s supervised release if he doesn’t obtain an official ID and proof that he’s filed an IRS-accepted tax return by July 9.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown told Patrick Thursday.

It marked the second time Patrick has been ordered since his release from custody to obtain a government-issued ID and file a tax return.

Patrick was sentenced in 2017 to one year and nine months in prison stemming from the armed occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

A jury convicted Patrick of conspiracy to impede federal workers through intimidation, threat or violence, and a judge convicted him of trespass, tampering with vehicles and equipment and destruction or removal of property.



Patrick has told The Oregonian/OregonLive that he has a “strong religious objection to being numbered.”
