Sister Megan Rice
Sister Megan Rice, "the nuclear nun" is part of Transform Now Plowshares in addition to being a Roman Catholic nun. She was arrested on July 28, 2012 for what was called "the biggest security breach in the history of the nation's atomic complex." On July 28, 2012, Sister Rice (then 82) broke with two other peace activists into Y-12 National Security Complex and sprayed anti-war slogans on the walls. 
She was found guilty of "destruction and depredation" of government property. Sister Rice said in her testimony "I regret I didn't do this 70 years ago."
