LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Xena: Warrior Princess star Lucy Lawless has plead guilty to trespassing after boarding an oil-drilling ship during an enviornmental protest in New Zealand in February.
The actress, who was seeking to draw attention to global warming, now faces up to three years in jail.
In conjunction with Greenpeace, Lawless boarded the ship as it was docked in a port, climbed up a tower and refused to come down for four consecutive days. The group was hoping to raise awareness of the environmental dangers of Arctic drilling.
Initially charged with burglary, Lawless now faces a reduced charge and is due to be sentenced in September.
