Anarchist Grand Jury Resistor Jerry Koch is Free!

from Earth First! Newswire

jerrykochToday NYC Anarchist Black Cross reported on Instagram and Twitter that anarchist and grand jury resistor Jerry Koch has been released from incarceration.

Jerry was found in contempt of court in May of 2013 for refusing to testify after subpoenaed by a grand jury in New York City. The investigation is believed to be connected to a 2008 bombing in Times Square. The bombing caused no injuries, and Jerry was not a suspect.

Jerry could have been held in jail on civil contempt charges for up to 18 months, but recently sent a bid for freedom to a federal judge.

We’ll have more news on this story as it develops.

Welcome back Jerry!
