SENTENCING UPDATE: This morning, the court rejected the prosecution’s demand for 5 years in prison, and sentenced Michael Williams to 90 days jail, which translates into an actual term of 60 days. Defense counsel Lamis Deek is already seeking Michael’s release pending appeal.
Thanks to more than 30 people who turned out for this hearing, and to everyone else who has come to Michael’s defense. Your support made a real difference today in court.
This fight is far from over, and further details will be forthcoming about how to support Michael in jail, raise funds for appeal, generate press coverage and other ways to win justice in this case.
