Kathy Boudin was released today from a New York State prison after serving 22 yers for her part in an armored-car robbery in which a security guard and two police officers were killed. Boudin, a former radical activist, was released from the state women’s prison, the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in northern Westchester County, the Associated Press reports.
Boudin will be living and working in the New York City area under routine parole restrictions, including a 10 p.m. curfew and limits on travel. She has received several job offers, including one at St. Luke’s Hospital, where she would develop programs for HIV-positive women.
Two police groups tried yesterday to block her release. Westchester County Court Judge Kenneth Lange refused to prevent Boudin from leaving the prison, but he said the state Fraternal Order of Police and the Rockland County Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association could continue to press their case in court.
