DeChristopher was removed from the auction by federal agents and taken into custody. After being imprisoned for 21 months, he was released in April 2013 and co-founded the nonprofit Peaceful Uprising. He is currently on a three-year probation. The recently released documentary film, Bidder 70, tells DeChristopher’s courageous story. He began studying at Harvard Divinity School in 2013. For more information, visit his website.
