Doors Without Locks Bother Ex-Convict After 36 Years By Rosalie Ritz SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Wesley Robert Wells is living in mansions these days, but he can't get used to sleeping with the doors unlocked. For 36 years he never had that problem. His homes car- ried names like San Quentin, Vacaville, and death row.

He was released to the custody of the Delancey Street Foundation, a self-help group for addicts and former prisoners.
