ATTORNEYS TO DEMAND RELEASE OF JAILED JOURNALIST

 

Attorneys for Jailed Journalist Josh Wolf Petition District Court for Full Release or

Thanksgiving Furlough

 

November 20, 2006-- San Francisco, CA - Attorneys for jailed journalist, Josh Wolf, will appear before Federal District Court Judge Alsup on Tuesday to argue for his release from federal prison, where he has been held now for over 90 days. The length of his incarceration is virtually unprecedented for a journalist refusing to hand over information to a grand jury. Wolf's attorneys are asking for his immediate release or at minimum, a furlough for the Thanksgiving holidays. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for tomorrow:

 

Wolf was incarcerated earlier this year for contempt after refusing to hand over his

unedited video of a 2005 protest in San Francisco's Mission District.

 

 

 

WHEN: Tuesday, November 21, 2006, at 2 p.m.

WHERE: Courtroom 9

U.S. District Court, Northern District of California

San Francisco Division

450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco
