Palo Alto, CA: Friends of Stephen Bingham, . Poster. 17x22.5 inch poster, tiny pinholes at corners, otherwise very good.
Bingham, a civil rights attorney, was tried in 1986 on charges of having smuggled a pistol inside a tape recorder to aid in George Jackson's attempted escape from San Quentin in 1971. He had fled the country after the incident and lived abroad for a number of years, stating that he was being framed. The FBI and RCMP worked to find him in 1984; the pressure led him to turn himself in. After a ten week trial, he was acquitted.
