Albert Woodfox, the final member of the “Angola 3” who supporters say spent more time in solitary confinement than any prisoner in U.S. history, was freed in Louisiana on Friday after spending more than four decades in isolation.
In a plea deal Friday that secured his freedom, Woodfox pleaded no contest to charges related to the 1972 killing of corrections officer Brent Miller, which Woodfox long contended he didn't commit.
