US blogger Josh Wolf walks from prison

The freelance journalist and blogger Josh Wolf, who catapulted into the mainstream media spotlight for failure to hand over source material has struck a deal with prosecutors and walked out of prison.

The 226 days he spent behind bars were a record for a journalist held in contempt, but under the deal, Wolf has apparently agreed to provide uncut video.

Check out the Free Josh Wiki for a run down of events as they unfolded. Time's August 2006 article "Blogging all the way to jail" is also worth a read.
