Statue of Liberty stamp mistake to cost US Postal Service $3.5 million

After a court appearance on misdemeanor charges, Therese Patricia Okoumou, a naturalised U.S. citizen from Congo, told reporters that she climbed the landmark as a spur-of-the moment protest over the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policies. She told the authorities she would come down when the migrant families were reunited. "I'm really sad for people who had to leave the island or who weren't able to get over here at all".

Okoumo, a naturalized USA citizen originally from the Republic of Congo, pled not guilty to misdemeanor charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct, and interference with government function.

Visitors were evacuated from Liberty Island via tour boats, as two Emergency Services Unit officers climbed a ladder to the statue's base, hoping to reason with the woman.

When the U.S. Postal Service rolled out its Forever stamps in 2010 featuring a close-up of the Statue of Liberty, it wasn't actually of the iconic symbol of freedom.

Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of trespassing, interfering with agency functions and disorderly conduct after she climbed the Statue of Liberty on Independence Day. Her protest turned into a almost three-hour standoff with police.

Following her federal court appearance on Thursday, she addressed the immigration organization, "Rise and Resist", and said, "no child belongs in a cage. especially on a holiday like this".

The officers recounted their heroics during FOX 5 NY morning program 'Good Day New York'.

If convicted, Okoumou could face up to six months in prison for each count.

Wearing a "Rise and Resist" T-shirt, Okoumou spent almost four hours on the statue, the fabled symbol of welcome to immigrants in NY harbor, forcing police into a risky retrieval mission and causing the evacuation of Liberty Island on Wednesday.
