Marino jailed for 6 months for harassing researcher

Camille Marino was sentenced in Wayne County Circuit Court to 6 months in jail plus three years' probation for harassing a Wayne State University researcher and trespassing on university property.

Camille Marino 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.
