A peace activist who received a one-year jail sentence stemming from an anti-drone protest has been freed from jail pending an appeal.

Mary Anne Grady Flores was released Friday on $5,000 bail from the Onondaga County Justice Center in Syracuse, N.Y., after appearing before County Court Judge Thomas J. Miller, who granted a stay of execution of her sentence pending appeal of an order of protection granted to Col. Earl Evans by the DeWitt Town Court.
