ARA sent to jail for harassing WSU researcher

[The Detroit News]

Detroit -- An animal rights activist was ordered Wednesday to serve six months in jail for harassing a Wayne State University researcher and trespassing on university property.

Camille Marino of Wildwood, Fla., was sentenced in Wayne County Circuit Court by visiting Judge Bryan Levy to the jail term as well as three years' probation under a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Marino pleaded guilty last month to unlawful posting of a message with aggravating circumstances and trespassing for harassing Donal O'Leary, who does cardiovascular research involving animals at WSU. A count of aggravated stalking was dismissed, court records say.

O'Leary sought a personal protection order against Marino in October 2011 after she published his home address and comments about him on a "Negotiation is Over" blog and other Internet sites. The researcher subsequently received emails from animal rights activists, including Marino, that led him to fear for his safety.
