Saberi was detained in January and convicted in April 2009 on espionage charges in a one-day trial that was closed to the public. She was sentenced to eight years in prison after being accused of spying for the United States.

A judge changed Saberi's sentence during an appeal hearing and the court agreed with her lawyers that, because Iran is not at war with the United States, Saberi cannot be punished for cooperating with agents of a hostile nation, according to Saberi's spokesman, Abdolsamad Khorramshahi.

Her sentence was changed to a two-year jail term, suspended for five years, Iran's state-run news agency IRNA reported.

She was finally released in May 2009.
