Tim DeChristopher's actions led to two contradictory outcomes.
In less than two months, the Department of Interior examined the auctions, found that they had not been conducted properly, and canceled 77 of the 116 leases.
Two months after that, the Department of Justice indicted DeChristopher for disrupting those same auctions. He faces a maximum penalty of up to 10 years in prison.
In this third in a series of exclusive interviews, DeChristopher gives his thoughts on why he is being prosecuted for disrupting what he calls "a crime in process."
