March 15, 2005

In January, 2005, Wilbert Rideau was freed from the Angola State Pentitentiary after serving 44 years for the 1961 murder of bank teller Julia Ferguson.  During Rideau's fourth trial, defense attorney Julian Murray sought and won a manslaughter verdict from the jury, which allowed him to be released for time already served. 

Julian Murray will  discuss his successful representation of Rideau, who became famous as the editor of the prison magazine "The Angolite," in a lecture entitled, "The Wilbert Rideau Case and Criminal Law in Louisiana," at Tulane University Law School, on March 28, 2005 at 4:00 p.m. in Room 357.
