Occupy Activist Cecily McMillan, facing seven years in jail was 'promoter of non-violence' by Jon Swaine New York theguardian.com Monday 7 April 2014
Cecily; who is 25-years old, is charged with felony assault of a police officer. If convicted, she could face up to seven years in prison.
The conflict began when an undercover police officer grabbed her right breast.
Cecily suffered a seizure when she was knocked unconscious by the police during the 6 month anniversary of the occupation of Zuccotti Park.
Cecily's attorney, Martin R. Stolar, describes her as an innocent person and says no crime was committed in this incident.
"In my view, as an attorney, it sounds like the wise thing for the prosecutor to do would be to drop all charges against Cecily McMillan. The case hinges on the arresting officer and if he can not testify because of credibility problems, the case should not be pursued. And, even if the facts are as they have been reported there is no crime to prosecute."
Yes, we do take this violation of our Constitutional Rights, very seriously!
Supporters of Cecily, are calling on activists and friends to #PackTheCourts and serve as witnesses each day of the proceeding.
