Judge Denies Release for Jailed Journalist

Attorneys for Josh Wolf Petitioned District Court for Full Release or Thanksgiving Furlough

San Francisco, CA – Attorneys for jailed journalist, Josh Wolf appeared Tuesday before Federal District Court Judge Alsup arguing for his release from Federal Prison, where he has been held now for over 90 days. Wolf, 24, honored as Journalist of the Year by the Society of Professional Journalists, was incarcerated earlier this year for contempt after refusing to hand over his unedited video of a 2005 G-8 protest in San Francisco. His incarceration is virtually unprecedented for a journalist refusing to hand over information to a Grand Jury.
