Reporter Josh Wolf Freed From Prison

Wolf struck a deal with prosecutors to post online the videotape that he had withheld from authorities.

Jailed last August, 226 days ago, reporter Joshua Wolf was freed on Tuesday, ending the longest period of incarceration in the U.S. for refusing to turn information over to the government.

Wolf, 24, struck a deal with prosecutors to post online the videotape that he had withheld from authorities.

"During the course of this saga I have repeatedly offered to allow a judge to be the arbiter over whether or not my video material has any evidentiary value," Wolf explained on his blog. "Today, you the public have the opportunity to be the judge and I am confident you will see, as I do, that there is nothing of value in this unpublished footage."

The tape in question covers a San Francisco protest in July 2005 against the G-8 Summit being held in Scotland. Authorities wanted to view unreleased portions of the tape to assist an investigation into the burning of a police car and the injury of a police officer. They, along with everyone else online, can now do so.

A press conference is planned for 5 p.m. PST on Tuesday at San Francisco City Hall.
