Five activists from Morocco's February 20th Movement (M20F) had their sentences reduced to six months on appeal Wednesday (January 9th), AFP reported.
The five young men were previously given prisons terms ranging between eight and ten months. The appellate court in Casablanca also ordered them to pay 7,500 dirhams each in civil damages and fines.
A sixth female defendant saw her sentence reduced from six to three months.
The activists were arrested in July 2012 after taking part in a demonstration that saw clashes break out between protestors and police.
