Former radical Kathy Boudin released from prison
Former radical Kathy Boudin was released from Bedford Hills state prison early Wednesday. On Tuesday, a Westchester judge shot down a bid from a police group to block the release. The state parole board's decision in August to release Boudin stirred anger from police and Governor Pataki. Boudin, a former member of the Weather Underground, took part in the 1981 Brink's robbery in Rockland County that killed two police officers and a guard. She will be living and working in the New York metropolitan area and will be under routine parole restrictions including a 10 p.m. curfew and travel restrictions for the rest of her life.
