To loud cheers from his family and supporters, former Black Panther Geronimo Pratt walked out of a Santa Monica, California, courtroom yesterday after a judge released him on $25,000 bail — just 12 days after reversing his 1972 murder conviction.

Judge Everett Dickey ruled after hearing new evidence that the chief witness against Geronimo Pratt was a police and FBI informant who lied under oath.
