Blogger Jailed! Update on Josh Wolf

August 2nd, 2006 by Alex

Anthony and Larry both blogged about Josh Wolf, a San Francisco videoblogger who captured an anti-globalization protest and the resulting tumult involving protesters and police. When last we heard about Wolf, he was facing incarceration for refusing to turn over his video of the incident. An update today, via Huffington Post’s Eat the Press (where, full disclosure, I do some blogging):

Freelance journalist and blogger Josh Wolf was jailed yesterday for refusing to release a videotape he took at a protest and after refusing to testify before a grand jury.

Wolf, 24, was taken into custody yesterday and “could be imprisoned until next summer, when the grand jury term expires, said his lawyer, Jose Luis Fuentes.”
