|Human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong in court in Changsha, Hunan province|
|Jerome Cohen asked Jiang to help Cheng Guangcheng|
|Jiang's wife Jin Bianling and their daughter are in the US|
Jiang was detained last year after he tried to visit Xie Yang, one of the some 300 lawyers and advocates who were swept up in a central government crackdown on civil rights two years ago called "709" as the campaign began on July 9, 2015..
His wife Jin had hoped Jiang's guilty plea would lead to his release on bail. She is now in the United States with the couple's daughter, where they fled in 2013.
