BIG NEWS – Albert Woodfox to be freed
Posted By Anita Roddick Team on June 10, 2015
Yesterday (Monday 10th) Judge James Brady ordered the unconditional release of Albert Woodfox and barred a third trial, saying it could not be fair.
The court said it had found at least five factors in Woodfox’s favour, including his age and poor health and his limited ability to present a defence at a third trial in the light of the unavailability of witnesses.
It also cited its “lack of confidence in the state to provide a fair third trial, the prejudice done onto Mr Woodfox by spending over 40 years in solitary confinement, and finally the very fact that Mr Woodfox has already been tried twice and would otherwise face his third trial for a crime that occurred over 40 years ago”.
LATEST UPDATE ON ALBERT WOODFOX

GREAT NEWS for ALBERT WOODFOX, the entire bench of 19 Judges of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has turned down Buddy Caldwell’s (Attorney General) appeal for a review and rehear - there was NOT ONE dissenting opinion! Caldwell can now only appeal to the US Supreme Court, or go for a retrial, or let Albert go. Today we celebrate this achievement but there will be much behind the scenes activity now so be patient it is going our way.
