CWN Editor's Note: A criminal court has found Father Oscar Benavidez Davila guilty of “conspiracy to undermine national security and sovereignty.” He faces a sentence of up to eight years.

The priest was arrested last August after he posted a statement on social media criticizing the government.

Bishop Rolando Alvarez of Matagalpa will face trial on a similar charge.
