Prosecutor son seeks father’s release in fatal Brink’s heist

FILE – In this November 2019, file photo provided by Chesa Boudin, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, second from left, is shown with his now-wife Valerie Block, far left, his father David Gilbert, and mother Kathy Boudin, right at Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, N.Y. Gilbert, 76, is serving a 75 years-to-life sentence for an Oct. 20, 1981 Brink’s armored truck robbery in Rockland County, N.Y., that left a guard and two police officers dead nearly forty years ago. San Francisco’s District Attorney, Boudin and other allies are lobbying New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for Gilbert’s release stemming from an incident that was considered one of the last gasps of 1960’s radicalism.
