Journalist freed, but won’t testify

first_imgU.S. District Judge William Alsup, who had jailed Wolf for 226 days, approved his release. The government is investigating how a San Francisco police officer’s skull was fractured during the melee and who set a police car on fire. The footage Wolf posted online does not capture the alleged crimes authorities are investigating, defense lawyer David Greene said. Wolf’s incarceration surpassed that of Vanessa Leggett, a Houston-based freelancer who served a record 168 days in 2001 and 2002 for declining to reveal unpublished material about a murder case. Wolf’s lawyers argued that the First Amendment gave him the right to refuse the subpoena to turn over the rest of his tape. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DUBLIN – A freelance videographer was released Tuesday after spending more time behind bars than any other journalist for refusing to testify before a grand jury. Joshua Wolf, 24, left the federal prison in Dublin, where he spent more than seven months after refusing to obey a subpoena to turn over his video from a chaotic 2005 San Francisco street protest during the G-8 summit. In a deal with prosecutors, Wolf agreed to turn over the uncut video, which he also posted on his Web site earlier Tuesday. Prosecutors said they were not inclined to seek his grand jury testimony, although they left open the possibility that he could be subpoenaed again later in the investigation. “I will not under any circumstances testify before a grand jury,” Wolf said as he left the prison. An unshaven Wolf, wearing a white T-shirt and sweat shorts, said he was looking forward to “pizza and a beer.” last_img read more
