Nun, 2 other anti-nuclear activists fined for break-in at weapons facility

Sister Megan Rice, 83, was one of the trio convicted for the 2012 break-in. 

The activists cut through fences at the storehouse in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, splashed paint and blood, and hammered on the walls in a demonstration of their opposition to nuclear weapons.
