What It’s Really Like Inside

Former death row inmate, author and award-winning journalist Wilbert Rideau offers an insider’s view of prison life.

Wilbert Rideau shares his personal observations of aging in prison, and the ever increasing numbers of older and infirm inmates spending their last years in expensive geriatric wards behind bars.  

Rideau served over 40 years at the Louisiana State Penitentiary, better known as Angola Prison.  Rideau became the editor of the prison magazine, and won several national prizes including a George Polk Award and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism award for his investigative work. He also contributed to a documentary on aging prisoners.

In 2005, Rideau was retried on his original murder conviction, and was convicted of manslaughter.  He was released on time served.
