Members of the group, including Rubin, allegedly set fires in October 1998 that destroyed Two Elk Lodge and other buildings at the Vail ski area in Eagle County, Colorado. She is charged with involvement in the November 1997 arson attack on the US Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Facility near Burns, Ore., and a December 1998 attempted arson at the offices of US Forest Industries in Medford, Ore.

Rubin is also named in a federal indictment in California charging her with conspiracy, arson, and using a destructive device in the October 2001 fire at the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Corrals near Susanville, Calif.

Ten other members of the ELF and ALF pled guilty to arson and conspiracy charges in August 2007. A federal judge in Eugene, Ore., sentenced them to prison terms ranging from three to 13 years.

Two alleged members of the groups remain international fugitives. They are identified as Joseph Mahmoud Dibee and Josephine Sunshine Overaker.
