Feds Mull Releasing Puerto Rican Nationalist

Produced by Chip Mitchell on Saturday, April 03, 2010

Carlos Alberto Torres is completing his 30th year behind bars this weekend.

In the 1970s, he worked in a movement pushing for Puerto Rican independence from the United States. Authorities say Torres participated in a faction that set off bombs. In 1981, a jury found him guilty of seditious conspiracy…

The U.S. Parole Commission in January held a hearing on whether to release Torres. A spokeswoman says the decision will come “soon.”

Torres’ backers are raising funds for his cause tonight in Chicago.
