Mark has been sentenced to 45 days in Rikers. Generally, one serves 2/3rd of their term in jail. This is 30 days, less the time he was in custody waiting for arraignment, giving us about 27 days. Assuming all goes as expected, Mark will be released on the evening of July 16th, or the day of July 17th. (Generally people are released the night before, but anecdotal evidence proves otherwise.)
This is a rumor. People with open cases may go, but please check with your lawyer. it is not recommended to go if there is a warrant for your arrest.
The NYCGA came to consensus in the fall to keep Occupy folks’s commissary’s full. It was filled the morning he was transferred, and is being overseen by the bail team.
