DETROIT (AP) — A Florida animal-rights activist has received a six-month jail sentence for her protests against the activities of a Wayne State University researcher.

Camille Marino of Wildwood, Fla., pleaded guilty to trespassing and unlawful posting charges in a deal with the Wayne County prosecutor's office, and Judge Bryan Levy sentenced her Wednesday.

She was arrested May 5 after chaining herself to a library door at Wayne State's campus in Detroit.

Marino has called Donal O'Leary a "war criminal" for using dogs for cardiovascular experiments. She also posted his address and other personal information online.

O'Leary had received a personal-protection order against Marino.
