Adam Durand Granted a Stay of Sentence

Tuesday, 20 June 2006

This morning the presiding judge of the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division Fourth Department granted a stay of sentence pending appeal for Adam Durand. Adam was released on bail today. This release will most likely last months until the Appellate Division makes a decision on his appeal.

This stay of sentence makes everyone more hopeful for Adam's case for appeal. Because of the ongoing appeal Legal Defense Funds are needed now more than ever. Adam's case has garnered media attention that has informed millions about the suffering of hens at Wegmans Egg Farm. The appeal will continue to draw attention to the animals' suffering.

Adam was sentenced on May 16 to six months in jail for revealing the egregious cruelty at Wegmans Egg Farm. Wegmans requested the harsh sentence received by Durand—-a first time offender-—in an obvious attempt to silence critics of the company’s inhumane practices.
