Soledad Brothers Acquitted

The two Soledad -- Fleeta Drumgo and John Clutchette -- were aquitted of all murder charges in San Francisco after a Superior Court jury deliberated for three days.

The jury, which at one point on Sunday reported it was "Hopelessly deadlocked," announced on Monday that it reached a unanimous "not guilty" verdict on all charges. Clutchette and Drumgo had been accused, along with the late George Jackson, of killing a guard at Soledad Prison two years ago.

As a result of the innocent verdict in the three-month trial, Clutchette will now be eligible for parole' Drumgo, however, must still face other murder charges since he has been accused, along with five other inmates, of being involved in last August's bloody uprising at San Quentin :: Earth News
