Jerry Koch Released After 8 Months Behind Bars For Not Talking

Free Jerry Koch Spread Anarchy Grand JuryAnarchist grand jury resister Jerry Koch has been released after eight months behind bars for refusing to testify against others before a federal grand jury. It is believed that the grand jury was investigating the 2008 “bicycle bomber” attack on the Time’s Square military recruitment center.

U.S. District Judge John F. Keenan was convinced to release Jerry after a brief written by National Lawyers Guild attorney Moira Meltzer-Cohen, which was submitted before Christmas. It was possible for him to be held on civil contempt for 18 months.

Though Jerry was never accused of committing a crime himself, he still spent the better part of a year locked up in a dehumanizing facility without any idea of when his confinement would end. Please support him as he adjusts to living outside a of cage. Remember that Jerry refused to sacrifice his integrity or his principles, in exchange for his personal freedom.
