Federal judge Jim Brady in Baton Rouge, formerly of Alexandria, has ordered Woodfox’s release on humanitarian grounds.
Brady says the former black panther, whose previous convictions have been overturned, could probably not receive a third fair trial. The U.S. Fifth Circuit Court Judge agreed to keep him in jail until tomorrow.
Brady also says Woodfox is in poor health.
