A convicted killer who won awards as an inmate journalist and called attention to a 1980's Louisiana pardon-selling scandal -- is now out of prison.
Officials say the next stop for Billy Wayne Sinclair is Houston.
Sinclair had served 40 years of a 90-year sentence for killing a Baton Rouge convenience store clerk in a 1965 robbery.
He won parole Friday.
An official with the Louisiana parole board says Sinclair plans to live in Texas.
Sinclair gained fame for his work on The Angolite -- the inmate publication at Louisiana State Penitentiary.
