Three pounds of cocaine with a retail price tag of $36,000. 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 if convicted. In 1974, he disappeared. Thursday, after six years in hiding, he surrendered on a cocaine charge because his work to save the St. Lawrence River “became more important than my own personal safety.” Hoffman, 43, accompanied by his brother, sister and a female companion, turned himself in to special state narcotics prosecutor Sterling Johnson, at 8:52 a.m. The ex-Yippie leader of the ‘60s will be 44 on Nov. 30. Hoffman, the author of several books — including “Steal This Book” and the more recent “Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture” — made his last court appearance on the drug charge on Feb. 25, 1974. New York Supreme Court Justice Mary Johnson Lowe issued a bench warrant for his arrest on April 16, 1974, after he failed for the third time in 32 days to appear for a pre-trial hearing. The judge’s order also required that a $10,000 cash bail be forfeited. The The Corps of Cadets gets its news from the Batt. AGGIES!
