Three anti-abortion activists face jail time after being convicted of trespassing at the Focus on the Family's campus last year.

The activists were at the group's Colorado Springs campus protesting Focus on the Family's founder James Dobson's presidential endorsement of former Republican Sen. John McCain.

Pastor Bob Enyart from Denver Bible Church, his brother Brian, and Kenneth Scott were convicted Friday in Colorado Springs municipal court. They face up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.

They were delivering a letter to the group's office last fall, objecting to Dobson's support for McCain, who they thought was not sufficiently anti-abortion. Police and security officers say the Enyarts and Scott refused to leave the office reception area.
