there was a court hearing this morning in
henry, requested her release and the judge granted it providing she
accepts the conditions. at this point, her lawyer, the
the probation officer are on their way to the hospital. after jackie
signs the papers and they return to the judge, she will be officially
"released" and her lawyer will be allowed to call joe and sue and tell
them which hospital she is in. it's not clear if she is in any
condition to leave the hospital, but at least we'll be able to sit with her.
apparently it was in the print version this morning that's the news
for now (see story and link below).
more when we know it.

By News Sentinel staff
One of the dozen anti-nuclear activists convicted last month of
misdemeanor trespassing on federal property in
released from jail, pending her formal sentencing.
A second one may be released today.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Guyton on Thursday approved the release of
Jean T. Gump, who recently turned 84 and had petitioned for release
for health reasons. Today, Guyton will review a similar petition by
Jacqueline Hudson. The
Gump and Hudson are among seven of the defendants who asked to be sent
to jail immediately following their convictions in May.
Guyton told Gump that she still has every right to engage in protests
if she wishes but warned her that the release he approved Thursday can
be revoked if she engages in any activity that gets her arrested.
"That has happened to another defendant in this case," the judge said.
Gump agreed to abide by all conditions of her release.
Gump, Hudson and 10 others were arrested last year when they crossed
the "blue line" at the Y-12 National Security Complex in
defendant is to be tried later.
Guyton has said he will sentence each protester individually.
