That's how long Matthew Duran has been in federal prison—the SeaTac Federal Detention Facility—for refusing to cooperate with a federal grand jury which was, ostensibly, going to ask him about people who might have been involved with this year's May Day protests. (We don't know what the jury was actually going to ask because 1. grand juries are secret and 2. Duran showed up but refused to cooperate, so didn't get very far into the process.)
Duran has now broken a record—though he hasn't been accused of a crime, he's been sitting in custody longer than the only person who was actually arrested and sentenced for May Day-related vandalism. (Cody Ingram was arrested on May 3 and sentenced on June 13 to time served.) Katherine “KteeO” Olejnik is also in SeaTac FDC with Duran for the same reason, and is just a few days shy of his record.
In other grand jury-related news: Leah-Lynn Plante was released without explanation earlier this month and another subpoena was issued last week to Olympia resident Matthew "Maddy" Pfeiffer, who was ordered to appear before the grand jury on Nov 7, 2012.
And for those of you who despise political vandalism, and see no reason to think too much about this situation, comment 22 on this story is trying to tell you something:
The issue here is not whether this young woman has information that would lead to the indictment of a brave group of stick-wielding, attention-starved chumps. The issue is the bastardization of the Grand Jury system and the need to either fix it or jettison the entire mess. The Grand Jury was wisely introduced to U.S. courts with the intent of protecting citizens against unfair prosecution, but they have morphed into a modern-day version of the Spanish Inquisition - exactly the opposite of the founding fathers intent. The U.S. is the only nation remaining that maintains the Grand Jury system and its continued use is an embarrassment.
