McMillan, 25, a graduate student, countered that she went to Zuccotti Park to meet a friend, not to be part of the protest. She said she felt someone trying to physically abuse her, so she instinctively struck back.

Cecily McMillan was found guilty on Monday for deliberately elbowing New York police officer GrantleyBovell in the face in March 2012.
Bovell testified in court that McMillan intentionally hit him in the face on March 17, 2012, as he was helping fellow officers clear Zuccotti Park during a protest marking six months since the creation of the Occupy Wall Street movement in September 2011.
Judge Ronald Zweibel ordered McMillan held without bail pending sentencing May 19. However, activists and legal experts are saying she didn’t receive a fair trial.
