Add comment on:Reps. Richmond, Conyers, Nadler, and Scott ask DOJ to investigage Louisiana Prisons
Letter to DOJ reposted by Angola 3 News
An excerpt of the letter to the US Department of Justice states: "The Louisiana DOC has an abysmal history of protecting the rights of its prisoners, and the tragic story of the Angola 3 is a case in point. Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox were charged with murder and convicted with evidence that has been called into question by numerous courts and stakeholders, including the victim’s wife. Another inmate, Robert King, was also subjected to decades of isolation after a wrongful conviction. His conviction was overturned and he was released in 2002."
