Occupy Wall Street activist Cecily McMillan, who was charged with a felony for elbowing a police officer, is out of Rikers Island after serving 58 days of her 90 day sentence. She was facing up to seven years after her conviction. According to the AP she was let out after serving less than a third of her sentence for “good behavior.” McMillan says that she’s more dedicated to activism than ever, and is passionate about incarceration reform after spending two months inside. “I walked in with one movement and return to you a representative of another.” (Photo: @FonrougeGab)
