Oscar-nominated actor James Cromwell has been sentenced to a week's jail after failing to pay fines that arose after he was involved in a protest back in December 2015.

The actor, best known for his role as Farmer Huggett in Babe, was one of six protesters arrested during a sit-in at a natural gas-fired power plant in upstate New York.

The protesters were found guilty of obstructing traffic and were told to pay a $375 fine.

James, as well as three other protestors, have refused to pay the fine.

According to the Middletown Times Herald-Record, when asked to pay the fine the actor said,"if we don’t stay together, nothing will charge."

James, as well as the other activists, have been ordered to report to the Orange County Jail on July 14.
