Former NSA contractor Reality Winner is released from prison for good behavior


“The fight continues and I’ll still be taking meetings in Washington to press forward the case for commutation and pardon, but the family will be stepping back to concentrate on Reality and her health and healing,” Grinter said in an email. “She became an aunt while she was behind bars, and she is going to spend as much time as she can bonding and tickling little feet as she adjusts to life in the world.”

Winner previously sought compassionate release during the pandemic, claiming that COVID-19 related prison lockdowns worsened her depression and eating disorder. The motion was denied, a ruling upheld by an appeals court.
