The wife of a State Department subcontractor jailed in Cuba hopes to intensify pressure on the Cuban regime as Pope Benedict XVI prepares to visit the island nation. In an interview set to air on CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront tonight, Judy Gross, wife of the contractor, Alan Gross, says "we are very hopeful he will intervene on Alan's behalf."
Alan Gross, who works for the State Department's U.S. Agency for International Development, has been held in jail in Cuba since 2009. "I'm very lonely," said Judy. "I miss Alan's companionship so much. I've never been an angry person before, but now I am. I have a lot of anger, which is very difficult for me."
Watch the entire interview tonight at 7 p.m. on CNN.
