In California, Black Lives Matter activist Jasmine Richards, whose conviction on a charge known up until recently as “felony lynching” sparked protests around the country, has been freed. Police had accused Richards of trying to de-arrest someone during a peace march. She was released Saturday, less than two weeks after being sentenced to 90 days in jail, minus time served. She is due back in court next month for pretrial hearings in two other cases.
