Occupy Wall Street Protester Convicted of Assaulting NYPD Officer

May 06, 2014  | 

The last of the Occupy Wall Street protesters to go on trial could face seven years in jail after she was convicted Monday in New York of assaulting a police officer.

After a four-week trial, Cecily McMillan, 25, a graduate student, was convicted of felony second-degree assault for elbowing New York police Officer Grantley Bovell in the face as he led her out of Zuccotti Park in a March 2012 protest.

First District Supreme Court Justice Ronald Zweibel ordered McMillan held without bail pending sentencing May 19, NBC News reports.

Bovell testified that McMillan intentionally sprang at him and hit him in the face on March 17, 2012, as he was helping fellow officers clear the park during a protest marking six months since the creation of the Occupy movement in late 2011.
