Journalist faces 21 years in jail for recording police


The journalist behind a popular activism site is facing 21 years in prison for publishing conversations with law enforcement officials that he says were on-the-record while investigating a police brutality case in the state of New Hampshire.

Adam “Ademo” Mueller is awaiting trial after being charged with three felony counts of wiretapping; if convicted, he could be sentenced to 7-years in jail for each instance.

Mueller, a journalist who is also the founder of, is maintaining his innocence in a case that has quickly garnered the supports from fellow activists who say the defendant has been targeted for trying to hold members of law enforcement accountable.
