Three Klansman were arrested in the bombing. Jimmy Dale Hutto of Pasadena, the only person to stand trial in the bombings, was arrested on his way to California, where he allegedly planned to blow up KPFT’s sister stations KPFA in Berkeley and KPFK in Los Angeles. Hutto was convicted in 1971 and sent to prison. The other two suspects testified for the government and never stood trial.
