(Studio) Angela Davis found innocent of all charges (murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy) in connection with California courthouse shoot-out 2 years ago.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(San Jose, California) In trial which lasted 13 weeks, jury deliberates only 13 hrs. Prosecutor Albert Harris looked as though he knew what verdict would be. Jurors impassive. Forman, Mrs. Mary Timothy, hands verdict to bailiff. Upon hearing "not guilty" Miss Davis throws arms around friend and both begin sobbing. Her supporters shriek. She is now free of all charges. [Angela DAVIS - says her freedom is example of all victories that are to come.] [Mary TIMOTHY - says unanimous verdict speaks for itself.] Miss Davis thanks each juror who set her free.
