Jason was arrested outside his home in July 2013, a year after the anti-fascist action that the Tinley Park 5 served time for. He was charged with armed violence and mob action, the same as the other 5 anti-fascists. His indictment states the Tinley Park Police were given a report from the FBI stating that they had identified me from DNA gathered at the scene and a surveillance video from the restaurant where the fascist meeting was shut down. He took a non-cooperating plea agreement on January 22, 2015 and will serve 3.5 years. He is the twin brother of Jeremy Hammond, a political prisoner. He was released in April 2016.
