Journalist faces jury tampering charges p.11

By: Editorial Staff An author accused of sending his book to grand jurors who investigated the Oklahoma City bombing was freed on bond after surrendering on two charges of attempting to influence a juror. David Hoffman, 38, turned himself in last week on an indictment handed down Dec. 30. He was released on $10,000 bond.
Hoffman, who runs an alternative San Francisco newspaper, the Haight-Ashbury Free Press, could get up to two years in jail if convicted. Hoffman is accused of sending a copy of his book, "The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Politics of Terror," and a note to alternate grand juror Frank Simms in September.
