Police undercover agents arrested Abbie Hoffman, ex-Yippie leader and
Chicago Seven defendant, on Aug. 28, 1973, in Room 1015 of Manhattan’s
Diplomat Hotel on charges of possession and sale of drugs.
He pleaded innocent and said he was framed.
Because of the quantity of drugs, he faced a maximum sentence of life in jail
