WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange emerged from a London prison today after he posted $315,000 bail stemming from sexual assault charges.  He thanked his supporters for helping to raise the bail and for their “brave and ultimately successful fight… in the face of great difficulty and diversion” to allow his release.  Assange also thanked the British courts, saying “If justice is not always the outcome, at least it is not dead yet.”  Assange also said “I hope to continue my work and continue to protest my innocence in this matter.”

An appeal for bail was denied earlier today.  The judge said he did not believe Assange would run if granted bail because that would make all his supporters look “naive, foolish and stupid.”

Julian Assange is the man at the center of controversy for releasing more than a quarter-million secret U.S. documents online.  He was being held in a London prison on sexual assault charges including rape allegations from two women in Sweden.

Many supporters contributed to Assange’s bail, including Davison native Michael Moore, who gave $20,000.

Although Assange is out of prison, he must surrender his passport and remain in the U. K. where he will be staying with a friend. He will have an electronic tag to confirm that he is at that residence overnight and must report to police every day.
