International Coalition to Free the Angola 3
Judge Jackson has overturned Herman Wallace of the Angola 3's conviction, granting him full habeas relief based on the systematic exclusion of women from the jury in violation of the 14th Amendment. Even more astonishingly, the Judge clearly orders that "the State immediately release Mr. Wallace from custody." No application for bail is required, and the State is given 30 days to notify Herman if they plan to re-indict him.
