October 1976
National Review;10/1/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 37, p1053
The article features the trial of David Sylvan Fine for bombing the University of Wisconsin Army Math Center in August 1970. Fine was arrested and arraigned on the charges. The bombing killed a father, injured three other people, and caused millions of dollars of damage. However, his lawyer convinced federal Judge Myron Gordon to pare bail down to $30,000. The bail was initially set at $1 million. Later Fine asked for and received pending sentencing permission to go home with his mother. On August 6, 1976, Gordon sentenced him to seven years in jail.
