  3. 1979 10 16 - Prosecutor Asks Speedway Bomb Trial Remain In Indy
  4. INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The government hopes accused Speedway bomber Brett C. Kimberlin can be tried in Indianapolis because most of its 125 prospective witnesses come from this area.
  5. Kimberlin's attorneys asked U.S. District Judge James E. Noland Friday to move the trial on a 34-count indictment out of the Southern District of Indiana on grounds publicity about the eight bombings has made it impossible to get a fair trial here.
  6. First Assistant U.S. Attorney Bernard L. Pylitt asked the court Monday to consider that most of the government's estimated 125 potential witnesss are from the Indianapolis area, and would have to be transported, housed and fed if the trial were moved.
  7. He argued it is not necessary to have an uninformed jury to have a fair one, as long - as jurors have not prejudged the defendant. He noted the bombings occurred 13 months ago and the indictment seven months ago.
  8. Pylitt noted the U.S. Supreme Court has set down ways to prevent prejudicial publicity, including sequestering the jury and controlling information released by police, witnesses and attorneys.
  9. Pylitt did not oppose the request by Kimberlin's attorneys to move the trial back from Nov. 5 to Dec. 3 but said the government is ready for trial.
  10. Nor did he object to the request by Kimberlin's attorneys to interview each prospective juror out of the presence of the rest of the panel, or to the request for a closed-door hearing to suppress evidence.
  11. Pylitt said there had been no electronic surveillance of Kimberlin, and his mail has not been intercepted.

  16. Noland also said it appeared Kimberlin associated with "the criminal element."
  17. Kimberlin, 25, an Indianapolis businessman, showed no emotion as he was sentenced to a term just 2 1/2 years less than the maximum.
  18. Kimberlin was charged in a 34-count indictment that included counts of manufacturing and setting six bombs in Speedway more than two years ago.
  19. He was convicted by a jury last month of impersonating a Department of Defense security guard and improper use of the presidential seal, but jurors could not decide on the bombing charges.
  20. The jury also acquitted Kimberlin on one charge of interstate transportation of ammunition.
  21. He was expected to be retried on those charges, but no trial date has been set.
  22. The 12-year sentence will be added to a four-year term Kimberlin received in June.
  24. 1981 05 21 - Kimberlin Jury To Report Today
  25. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A panel of 80 prospective jurors was ordered to report today for the second federal court trial of accused Speedway bomber Brett C. Kimberlin.
  26. Attorneys said opening arguments in the trial may be delivered Tuesday or Wednesday.
  27. Kimberlin, 26, Indianapolis, was called to the stand Wednesday during the third day of a hearing on pre-trial motions. He testified he is 5 feet 3 or 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 105 to 110 pounds.
  28. The testimony was offered to contradict evidence of FBI agent Chester Lucas at Kimberlln's first trail that he is 5-7 or 5-8.
  29. Under cross-examination, assistant U.S. attorney Bernard L. Pylitt attacked Kimberlin's testimony with vigor, charging him with lying. Pylitt produced two of the defendant's old driver's licenses. On one Kimberlln's height was listed as 5-7 and the other 5-6.
  30. Kimberlin responded, "I have a short guy problem. I may have told them I'm a little taller than I was."
  31. The government accused Kimberlin of making and setting six of eight bombs that expoded in Speedway during September 1978.  The Jury failed to reach a verdict on the bombing charges in the first trial.
  32. Much of Wednesday was spent listening to a barely audible tape recording-of two government witnesses.  They were heard speaking under hypnosis which was induced by police.
  33. The defense is trying to have the tape and four similar ones banned as evidence when the trial begins.
  35. 1981 06 04 - Kimberlin Convicted
  36. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The attorney for accused Speedway bomber Brett C. Kimberlin says he is disappointed a federal court jury convicted his client and plans to appeal.
  37. Kimberlin, of Indianapolis, was convicted Wednesday, the 27th anniversary of his birth, on two counts of possession of explosives by a convicted felon. He sat stonyfaced as the jury announced its verdict after 10 1/2 hours of deliberation.
  38. Kimberlin could be sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined $10,000 on each count. Judge William E. Steckler did not set a date for sentencing, usually done about six weeks after a conviction.
  39. Kimberlin is scheduled to go on trial Monday on 22 other counts charging him with making and setting off six of the eight bombs in Speedway in September 1978.
  40. His attorney, Nile Stanton, asked Steckler to delay that trial, citing news converage of Wednesday's verdict. Steckler set 10 a.m. today for a hearing on the motion.
  41. The government contended Kimberlin, who was convicted of perjury in 1974, obtained leftover Tovex, an explosive, from a construction project on property he owns in Jackson County.
  42. The prosecution contended the Tovex left in Kimberlin's possession later was used in the Speedway bombings. The defense argued the remaining explosives were used in later phases of the construction project.
  44. 1981 06 15 - Woman US Attorney Leaving Office
  45. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The nation's first woman appointed to a four-year term as a U.S. Attorney is ready to leave office. Described as a "fine administrator and a real leader," Virginia Dill McCarty earned a reputation as one who wouldn't play politics.
  46. Mrs. McCarty, a 56-year-old Democrat, was only the second woman to be appointed a U.S. attorney. President Woodrow Wilson appointed another woman to a two-year term in 1919.
  47. Two of Indiana's legislative leaders, one Republican and one Democrat, were prosecuted during Mrs. McCarty's term. The Democrat was Rep. Spencer J. Schaitter of Madison, who once chaired Indiana's House Ways and Means Committee. He received a suspended one-year jail term and a suspended $500 fine for failing to file federal tax returns for 1973 and 1974.
  48. Former state Senate President Pro Tempore Martin K. Edwards, a Republican, recently began serving a prison sentence after pleading guilty to a tax charge and being convicted on corruption charges.
  49. "She (Mrs. McCarty) had the chance to grab some headlines by leaking secret grand jury information about Sen. Edwards to the press prior to the 1980 election," said Don A. Tabbert, a Republican who was the U.S Attorney from 1957 to 1981. "That information would have hurt the GOP, but she didn't yield to the temptation to leak it."
  50. 'It's been a busy time, but I loved it. I really did. I'll miss it," said Mrs. McCarty, appointed by former President Carter. Mrs. McCarty has resigned, effective June 17. However, she has decided to comply with a Justice Department request to remain at the post until her successor, Republican Sarah Evans Barker, receives Senate confirmation.
  51. "She is an exceptionally fine administrator and a real leader," said Chief Federal Judge William E. Steckler, who rates Mrs. McCarty as one of the best U.S. Attorneys he has seen in 31 years on the bench.
  52. Her term, which began after then-Sen. Birch E. Bayh offered her the position, included the prosecution of Indianapolis Municipal Court Judge David Caldwell.
  53. Other major cases included the pending indictment of the former leader of Community Action Against Poverty for embezzlement, the firebombing conviction of the state grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan, the probe of concrete cracks at the Marble Hill nuclear power plant and the conviction of accused "Speedway bomber" Brett C. Kimberlin on various charges filed in connection with a series of bombing incidents in that community.
  55. 1981 09 06 - Chemist Links Bomb Pieces To Equipment Found In Car
  56. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A federal court jury has been told that items used to set off a series of explosions in an Indianapolis suburb in 1978 were similar to those found in a car allegedly belonging to the man accused of the bombings.
  57. A forensic chemist linked bomb fragments to items similar to those found in a car accused Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin was driving when he was arrested nearly three years ago.
  58. George Peterson of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms testified Friday in Kimberlin's trial at Indianapolis about a laboratory analysis of the bomb fragments.
  59. Peterson said the analysis revealed the presence of the chemical, monomethyllaminenitrate, which is used only in one brand of explosive material, Du Pont Tovex 200 and Tovan, which another witness testified earlier he had sold to Kimberlin.
  60. The analysis also showed the power to set off the bombs was furnished by a particular brand of battery and that the blast trigger was a certain brand of timer coupled to Du Pont electric blasting caps, the chemist testified.
  61. After Kimberlin's arrest on Sept. 21, 1978, federal agents found all of those items in a suitcase stamped with Kimberlin's initials. The suitcase was found in a trunk of the car Kimberlin allegedly was driving.
  62. Kimberlin is named in an 18- count indictment charging him with setting off a series of eight explosions at several sites in Speedway in September 1978.
  63. A federal Treasury agent also testified Friday that he had found an operable police scanner radio in the car Kimberlin was allegedly driving on the date of his arrest.
  64. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kennard Foster called Treasury Agent James Richardson to testify about police scanners found in the car Kimberlin allegedly drove.
  65. Richardson testified that he ran several tests on the scanner and found it able to pick up police broadcasts.
  66. Chief defense attorney, Nile Stanton, has repeatedly asked government witnesses if the items found in the car's trunk, including a police scanner radio, were similar to those seized when Kimberlin was arrested in Texas.
  67. One of Kimberlin's key defense theories claimed the items found in the trunk of the car were to be used, not in the Speedway bombings, but in an international marijuana smuggling caper that ended in Texas after the bombings.
  69. 1981 09 16 - Kimberlin Trial Antics Irk Federal Judge
  70. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Lawyers In the trial of accused Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin have been told by Chief Federal Judge William Steckler to "lay aside theatrics and dramatics" to prevent turning the proceeding Into a "mockery."
  71. "I don't know If yoy people are being paid by the hour, day or the week, but you are wasting an inordinate amount of time," Steckler told defense attorney Nile Stanton Tuesday.
  72. Later, U.S. Assistant Attorney Kennard P. Foster complained that Stanton and Kimberlin were smirking and smiling during his cross-examination of Kimberlin's father, Greg.
  73. Stanton said his client's actions were natural and could not be controlled. However, Foster claimed Kimberlin was in effect, testifying, by shaking his head and gesturing.
  74. "He shouldn't be allowed to sit there and make gestures," Foster argued.
  75. Steckler then expressed concern over making a mockery out of the trial.
  76. "All I ask is that the participants lay aside the theatrics and dramatics and other means to sway the jury," Steckler said. "All I wast to a trial In judicial manner."
  77. The 34-year-old Kimbtrlin has pleaded Innocent to 22 counts of making, planting and detonating a series of bombs in Speedway that rocked the Indianapolis suburb in September 1978.
  78. He was previously tried with the bombings, but the Jury was unable to reach a verdict.
  79. The Indianapolis man has already been convicted of other federal charges for possesslag explosives and an appeal hearing on those charges Is scheduled today in the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
  80. Earlier Tuesday, Steckler ruled that Greg Kimberlin could not testify about statements allegedly made by the defendant's deceased brother concerning the ownership of the explosives.
  81. The prosecution opposed the elder Kimberlin's testimony because the defendant's brother Scott actually made the statements and he was killed last year. The government's lawyers contended that brother could not be cross examined.
  83. 1981 09 22 - Witness Says She Was With Kimberlin
  84. INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — The chief alibi witness for accused Speedway bomber Brett C. Kimberlin testified Monday she was with him the night four of the explosions occurred during September 1978.
  85. Sandra Barton said she slept on the floor outside Kimberiin's bedoorm on Sept. 1, 1978, after dining with him earlier in the evening. She testified she and Kimberlin engaged in a 20-minute meditation session before he went to bed.
  86. She said she had no reason to believe he left the house near Eagle Creek Reservoir on the west side of Indianapolis.
  87. Other witnesses last week testified seeing someone resembling Kimberly place a bag in a trash can at a shopping center where one of the blasts occurred.
  89. 1981 09 23 - Witness In Denmark Sought
  90. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Attorneys for both the U.S. government and accused Speedway bomber Brett Klmberlln talked with a defense witness in Copenhagen.
  91. Kimberlin, of Indianapolis, is charged with 22 counts of making, possessing and setting a series of bombs that rocked the Indianapolis suburb in September 1978.
  92. During Tuesday's court session, defense attorneys tried to show their client couldn't have set the blasts because he was elsewhere.
  93. Nile Stanton, chief defense counsel, filed a petition to transport the witness in Denmark at the government's expense. Officials estimated it would cost $1,400 to fly Tina Duerden to Indianapolis.
  94. Stanton said Miss Duerden was a waitress at an Indianapolis restaurant where Kimberlin and two teen-age girls went Sept. 2,1978. She was sought as a defense witness to corroborate testimony by the teen-agers.
  95. The girls testified Kimberlin took them shopping and then to dinner at a northwestside restaurant where Miss Duerden worked.
  96. The defense says the Miss Duerden dropped several plates that night and was consoled by Kimberlin who left her a $10 tip.
  97. An Indiana Reformatory inmate was not allowed to testify Tuesday after federal Judge William Steckler ruled the prisoner's statements were hearsay.
  98. Joseph Majako, 27, told investigators he knew Kimberlin and Robert Scott Bixler, a friend of Kimberlin's brother, Scott. Majako said he heard Bixler making remarks about allegedly setting the bombs.
  99. Several times during the 25-day trial Stanton has complained to the judge the defense has been unable to locate and talk with Bixler.
  100. Kennard Foster, an assistant U.S. attorney, said Bixler was in the Justice Department's witness protection program.
  101. "He is at liberty now, judge, but he fears for his life and doesn't want his address revealed," Foster told the judge.
  102. However, in response to a subpoena from the defense, Foster pledged to have Bixler in court today, and he is expected to testify.
  104. 1981 10 01 - Bombing Defendant Refuses Defies Judge During Trial

  113. INDIANAPOLIS tUPI) - A federal jury of 11 women and a man Tuesday evening began sifting nearly two months of testimony from 117 witnesses in the Speedway bombing case.
  114. The defendant was a young man from a good Indianapolis family who dresses impeccably, smiles easily, has run two legitimate businesses and has acquired a federal criminal record stretching from Indianapolis to Texas and from minor crimes to
  115. airborne marijuana smuggling.
  116. "The proof is clear beyond a reasonable doubt that Brett C. Kimberlin was the Speedway bomber ... and injured two human beings," Assistant U.S. Attorney Kennard Foster told jurors just before Chief Judge Wiliiam Sleekier began instructing them.
  117. Sleckler sent the jurors to dinner about 6:15 p.m. before they began deliberations.
  118. "I don't know why he did it. But we don't have to show a motive — only that he did it. And we did," Foster argued.
  119. Kimberlin, 27, a slimly built former health food store owner whose previous federal convictions include perjury, marijuana smuggling and unlawful possession of explosives, was charged in 22 counts in connection with six of the explosions that terrorized the Speedway section of Indianapolis in September 1978.
  120. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Thar explained the first eight counts charged Kimberlin with having an unregistered explosive device, the next eight with unauthorized making of bombs and the remaining counts with setting explosives, including a bomb that injured a Speedway couple.
  121. "He's the individual that blew off Carl DeLong's leg, "Thar said.
  122. Chief defense lawyer Nile Stanton, speaking before Foster and after Thar, told the jury-the government twisted evidence in an effort to prove the wrong man guilty.
  123. "Sometimes the government goes awry, assumes guilt and then gets wrongheaded in an attempt to prove guilt," Stanlon said.
  125. 1981 10 15 - Jurors Continue To Deliberate In Bomb Trial

  130. Meanwhile, Kimberlin awaited the verdict in the lockup of the U.S. marshal's office.
  131. In an earlier note Wednesday, jurors asked the judge about a key phrase in six counts of the indictment in which Kimberlin is charged with setting the bombs.
  132. The jury asked whether the phrase "did maliciously damage" means that if Kimberlin caused the detonation did he have to be personally present as stated in the indictment.
  133. Steckler answered the phrase meant Kimberlin, if guilty, must have been present when the bombs were placed, not necessarily when they exploded.
  134. The government has noted that timers were used to delayed explosions of some bombs as long as an hour.
  136. 1981 10 18 - Jurors Disbelieved Kimberlin
  137. INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Jurors who convicted Brett Kimberlin as the "Speedway bomber" said they did not believe him and his alibi witness, and did believe an eyewitness from one of the bombing scenes.
  138. Kimberlin was convicted Thursday on 22 counts for six bombings that terrorized the town of Speedway just west of Indianapolis in 1978. It was his third trial in connection with the bombings.  Penalties couid total 230 years in prison if applied consecutively.
  139. Intervews with jurors reported in Thursday's Indianapolis News quoted the jurors as saying Kimberlin's alibi fell apart largely because of a letter written by Shari Barton, daughter of the key defense alibi witness, Sandra Barton. The article did not identify the jurors quoted by name.
  140. Kimberlin's previous perjury conviction was a minor issue but "did have an impact." one juror said.
  141. Mrs. Barton and Kimberlin had testified they were together all during one night when a bomb exploded in Speedway. Her daughter testified she was with her mother and not with Kimberlin for part of that night, as she mentioned in a letter she had written.
  142. The jurors said they agreed first on the charges of possession of explosives, then on the manufacturing counts. At first they were divided on the detonation counts.
  143. The question of whether Kimberlin was present to place the bombs nearly had the jury divided, with some members confused about the legal instructions given by Judge William Steckler.
  144. Outside the jury's presence, Steckler discussed that confusion and said it would be ludicrous to expect the criminal to wait around for the explosion.
  146. 1981 11 02 - Clock Gets Kimberlin In Dutch
  147. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An alarm clock run by 1.5-volt battery which could be used In an explosive device was confiscated from the Marlon County Jail cell of convicted Speedway bomber Brett C. Kimberlin, Jail deputies say.
  148. Kimberlin, 27, of Indianapolis, was convicted in federal court Oct. 15 in six of eight bombings in Speedway In September 1978. He Is awaiting sentencing.
  149. Jail authorities said they had no evidence Kimberlin intended to use the clock illicitly. It was seized Sunday. However, they noted if the battery were wired to a plastic explosive, a siseable explosion would result.
  150. No explosive materials were found, officials said, but any battery-operated item is considered contraband.
  151. Jail authorities said they also confiscated from Kimberlln's cell vitamin pills, crayons and carbon paper. Deputies said crayons and carbon paper could be used to cover telltale murks of tampering with cell bars. No explanation was given for confiscating the vitamin pills.
  152. Deputies said they had no idea how the clock got into Kimberlin's cell but noted he receives many visits. They expressed concern such an item could be slipped in so easily. "If they can get this clock in, why not some plastic explosives," a deputy said.
  153. The clock, in a leather case, was tacked between the bed and the wall, but no attempt had been made to conceal It, deputies said.
  154. Jail Commander Larry L. Koch quoted Kimberlin as saying deputies earlier had seen the clock and allowed him to keep It. Koch said he was checking the statement with deputies.
  155. "It (the clock) is something that is considered contraband," Koch said. "What concerns me is how he got it In there."
  156. Koch said he planned to interview Kimberlin today. Kimberlin was removed from a third-floor cellblock, where he had contact with other prisoners, and placed in deadlock as a precaution because of his record, sheriff's Lt. Carl E. Cambridge said.
  157. In deadlock, a prisoner is confined to a cell in the jail basement 23 hours a day. The other hour may be spent taking a shower and visiting with his attorney.
  158. Koch said Kimberlin will be searched each time he returns to the cell.
  159. The clock and other materials were discovered during a shakedown of the cellblock triggered when a metal food tray and spoon were reported missing after inmates were fed in their cells. Deputies say the missing tray and spoon were not found.
  161. 1981 12 20 - For Kimberlin 79-Year Term Sought
  162. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Federal authorities have asked that convicted Speedway bomber Brett C. Kimberlin be sentenced to 79 years in prison, saying Kimberlin planned to seduce and murder the chief prosecutor in his case.
  163. The alleged schemes were outlined in a request presented Friday to VS. District Judge William E. Steckler. Steckler has set sentencing for Dec. 30.
  164. The federal prosecutors' memorandum to the judge describes Kimberlin as the leader of a large and highly sophisticated narcotics smuggling ring and says he is "devoid of conscience and amoral in conduct."
  165. The document said Kimberlin gave written instructions to an unnamed person to seduce chief prosecutor Kennard P. Foster and have a private investigator take photographs of them.
  166. Kimberlin, convicted of making and setting off the eight bombs that exploded in Speedway in September 1978, is already serving a 21-year sentence on convictions from an earlier Speedway bombing trial and for an International marijuana smuggling scheme in Texas.
  167. The memo did not explain why Kimberlin would have set the bombs. It says "a connection can be made relative to his trafficking in controlled substances," but offers no explanation.
  168. Federal authorities learned of the death threats during October and November of 1979 from Kimberlin's cellmates at the Marion County Jail, the memorandum said. The cellmates gave the information voluntarily to agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
  169. The exhibits are photocopies of sheets from a yellow legal pad on which Kimberlin allegedly used cryptic markings to identify those he wanted murdered, bribed or discredited, officials said.
  170. The memo said the phony alibi involves Kimberlin's arrest and conviction for smuggling marijuana by air from Mexico to Texas. According to the memo, Kimberlin once considered telling authorities he was planning to transport supplies to Sandinista rebels fighting in Nicaragua.
  172. 1981 12 30 - Vietnam Memorial Goal Is 20000
  173. "We are asking for no more or no less than what you see here," Bill Smyser said pointing to the courthouse war memorial.
  174. With those words, the Howard County Vietnam Veterans Association started its fund-raising drive Tuesday confident of reaching its goal of |20,000 for an Indochina War memorial.
  175. Smyser, a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, is chairman of the drive and Carl DeLong, a Vietnam War veteran who now lives in Indianapolis, is honorary chairman.
  176. Pointing to the easel in the courthouse rotunda, which contains the names of most local Vietnam veterans, Smyser condemned it as "disrespectful."
  177. "This is not what we should have here to honor those who served in Vietnam," he said. Smyser told the small group gathered at the brief ceremony that the local Vietnam memorial would be as impressive as the memorial honoring other war vets.
  178. He said the Vietnam Veterans Association would soon choose the memorial design and present it as a recommendation to the Howard County commissioners. It is estimated the memorial will cost about $20,000.
  179. The group has raised $1,650 in donations — $1,350 from the Howard County Overseas Club, $200 from American Legion Post 6 and $100 from the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
  180. Smyser plans to announce fundraising captains by the end of this week whose Job will be to solicit donations through business and industry. There will be no door-todoor solicitation, he said.
  181. Contributions to the memorial fund can be mailed to Union Bank & Trust Co., 224 N. Main St., where an account has been established. Smyser said all checks should be made out to the Howard County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.
  182. DeLong, a captain in the U.S. Army Reserve, said he agreed to serve as honorary chairman because of his friendship with Smyser who is his former brigidier commander.
  183. He was a staff sergeant in the Vietnam War serving from mid-1968 to mid-1969 at a Ranger outpost 35 miles from the Bien Hua air base.
  184. As a Ranger in the 151st Infantry, DeLong was awarded three Bronze Stars (two for valor), two Air Medals and two Army commendation medals.
  185. He survived the war without a scratch only to later suffer severe injuries in a Speedway parking lot.
  186. DeLong was the man who went to pick up the suitcase left in the high school parking lot by the so-called Speedway Bomber. Just as he reached for it, the bomb inside the suitcase exploded. The concussion and fragments tore off his right leg and severely injured his left leg, hands and an ear.
  187. Brett Kimberlin was convicted of the bombing earlier this month and was scheduled to be sentenced today.
  188. DeLong, a parts inspector at Detroit Diesel Allison, said he plans to make several trips to Kokomo to heip wm, the fundraising drive.
  189. "I think it's about time we start remembering our Vietnam veterans," he said. "They can't be blamed for what happened. They were only doing their job."

  200. Kimberlin already is serving a 11-year sentence on a variety of other convictions, including conspiracy in an international drug smuggling ring and impersonating a federal officer.
  201. The bombing sentence wi)> be served concurrently with his either sentences.

  292. Brett C. Kimberlin, incarcerated for several bombings in the Indianapolis suburb in 1978, filed the tort claim last December in Washington. It was made public this week.
  293. Quayle, a former Indiana senator who was elected vice president Nov. 8, 1983, has denied ever using illegal drugs. Liz Murphy, a spokeswoman for Quayle, said Wednesday Kimberlin's allegations were "totally false, just as they were in 1988."
  294. Kimberlin claims that his constitutional rights to free speech and due process of law were violated by the Bureau of Prisons in November and December 1988, when he was placed in solitary confinement at the Federal Correctional Institution at El Reno, Okla., three times.
  295. The claim charges Bureau Director J. Michael Quinlan and other officials with unlawful imprisonment.

  320. Her husband, Carl D. DeLong, died of carbon monoxide poisoning in 1983, more than four years after losing his right leg in an explosion.

  325. Kimberlin, who continues to maintain his innocence in the bombing, argued that Mrs. DeLong failed to show her husband's death was his fault.
  326. The appeals court said suicide can be held a wrongful death only where the person acted in "delirium or frenzy" and without realizing he was harming himself.
  327. "He often made references to the fact he didn't want to go through life like that." Mrs. DeLong testified at the 1983 civil trial. "And that he wasn't going to get any better and that he was going to lose his other leg."

  330. But none of the suicide notes DeLong left wrote his wife, children and grandchildren mentioned the bombing or his injuries. He died of carbon monoxide poisoning, sitting in a running car inside his garage.
  331. In the opinion written by Judge Erza H. Friedlander, the court said that although "we sympathize with the DeLongs." DeLong was capable of deciding to kill himself and knowing his effort would succeed.
  332. A person can be held responsible for a suicide, the Judges said, "only where it is the result of an uncontrollable influence, or is accomplished in delirium or frenzy, caused by the defendant's negligent act or omission, and without a conscious volition of a purpose to take life."
  333. In a dissenting opinion on the award for Mrs. DeLong's injuries. Judge Patrick D. Sullivan said Kimberlin's bombing conviction by itself was not enough to prove him liable for Mrs. DeLong's injuries.
  334. DeLong was injured when he came upon a bag in a high school parking lot after a football game and kicked it to see what was inside.  The DeLongs were the only people hurt.
  335. Prosecutors said they believed Kimberlin set eight bombs in 1978 in hopes of diverting local authorities investigating drug smuggling allegations against him.
  336. Kimberlin is also known for his claim before the 1988 presidential election that he sold marijuana to Dan Quayle in the 1970s.

  339. Speedway bomber serves 13 years
  340. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Speedway police say they hope federal authorities will keep them informed about the whereabouts of convicted Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin, who they had hoped would be in prison for years to come.
  341. Kimberlin is set to be paroled today after serving about 13 years of the 51-year federal sentence he received in connection with eight bombings in Speedway during a five-day period in 1978.
  342. Although parole restrictions prevent Kimberlin from returning to where his victims live, police and residents still are uneasy
  343. "I think it's going to create some concern as far as Speedway residents are concerned," said Bill Burgan, Speedway police chief in 1978. "1 guess I'll be concerned to find where he goes when he gets paroled."
  344. Friends said they expect Kimberlin to stay on the East Coast in the immediate future. His mother lives in Maryland, and he is working on a book with a New York-based writer.
  345. None of that makes Sandra DeLong feel any better. Sandra was with her husband Carl when he kicked a gym bag lying in the parking lot of Speedway High School in 1978. The bag exploded, injuring both of them.
  346. Carl DeLong's right leg had to be amputated and he committed suicide in 1983, citing pain from the injury.

  349. Kimberlin had planned to hold a news conference at a federal prison in Oklahoma in November 1988, but the warden canceled the event and placed Kimberlin in a detention cell.
  350. Kimberlin responded with a suit against the federal prison system, alleging he had been silenced to protect Quayle. A federal appeals court voted 2-1 to kill the suit in October 1993.
  351. Kimberlin's release today closes a chapter in the criminal proceedings against him, but a civil case is still pending.
  352. Sandra DeLong won a $1.25 million judgment against Kimberlin in a wrongful death lawsuit she filed. The Indiana Court of Appeals overturned that decision in May, ruling that Carl DeLong's injuries did not lead to his suicide.
  353. However, the appeals judges ruled that the Marion Superior Court jurors were correct to award Sandra DeLong $360,000 for physical injuries she suffered in me explosion. Kimberlin is appealing that award to the Indiana Supreme Court.
  355. 1994 06 15 - Indiana Supreme Court Reinstates Damages In Kimberlin Case
  356. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Supreme Court's affirmation that the Speedway bomber was responsible for a man's suicide is worth more than money, the man's widow says.
  357. The Supreme Court ruled that Sandra Sue DeLong was entitled to a $1.25 million award for Carl DeLong's wrongful death, as well as $360,000 for injuries she suffered in a September 1978 bomb blast.
  358. The decision Monday reinstated a 1984 Marion Superior Court ruling, which was partially overturned after the Court of Appeals said Brett Kimberlin was not liable for DeLong's death.
  359. Mrs. DeLong said she doubts she will ever see a penny of the judgment, but money was not her main reason for suing Kimberlin.
  360. "Mainly it was just to show he was, responsible for what happened to my husband later," she said. "At least they ruled that he was responsible, whether he admits it or not."
  361. The DeLongs were walking through a parking lot at Speedway High School on Sept. 6, 1978, when Carl DeLong kicked a gym bag he saw lying on the ground.  The bag exploded, injuring both of them.
  362. Carl DeLong's right leg had to be amputated, and he committed suicide in 1983, citing pain from the injury. Shrapnel hit Mrs. DeLong's left leg, and she said she still suffers pain from her injuries.
  363. Kimberlin was convicted in connection with eight bombings in Speedway during a five-day period in 1978. He served 13 years of a 51-year federal sentence before he was paroled in February. Kimberlin has denied any wrongdoing.
  364. The Indiana Court of Appeals threw out the wrongful death damages in May 1993, saying Kimberlin wasn't liable because DeLong committed suicide.  Kimberlin asked the Supreme Court to look at the case, saying the courts were wrong to use his federal convictions as proof he was responsible for damages.
  366. 1997 04 14 - Kimberlin Might Skip Hearing On Settlement
  367. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An attorney says convicted Speedway bomber Brett C. Kimberlin shouldn't have to be at a Marion County Superior Court hearing this week to decide whether he can pay money toward a $1.6 million settlement.
  368. Kimberlin's local attorney, Hollis Roy Martin, said if Sandra DeLong and her family want any assets from Kimberlin, they'll have to go to a court in Maryland, where he's on parole after serving 15 years of a 50-year sentence.
  369. A jury in 1983 decided DeLong should be compensated for her injuries and for the death of her husband. Carl Delong was crippled by a Kimberlin bomb and committed suicide five months before the trial.
  370. Martin has filed a motion to dismiss the claim from the Indiana court because Kimberlin is a resident of Maryland.
  371. The Marion County court has no authority over Kimberlin, who doesn't have any property or assets in Indiana that could be taken away by an Indiana court, Martin said.
  372. DeLong's attorney, Christine Hickey, said she is using the proper procedures to collect the money.
  373. "We're going to do everything possible to collect the judgment," she said, adding that DeLong also is entitled to $2.2 million in accumulated interest.
  374. Civil courts can issue contempt citations for people who don't show up in court. But the civil court has no extradition powers to bring Kimberlin from Maryland to Indiana, Martin said.
  375. Kimberlin, a 1972 North Central High School graduate, convicted drug smuggler and former Broad Ripple businessman, was convicted of triggering a series of bombs that terrorized the Speedway community in 1978,
  376. Kimberlin also claimed during the 1988 presidential campaign that he sold then-vice president candidate Dan Quayle marijuana during the 1970s.
  377. In the past couple of years, Kimberlin has been in a rock band, has been involved in an export business and has operated a company, Brett Kimberlin Enterprises, according to news accounts and court records.

  380. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Convicted Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin is back in jail and faces two years in federal prison for violating parole.
  381. Kimberlin once owned a health food restaurant here. He pleaded guilty to separate federal drug charges and was charged with setting a series of bombs that terrorized Speedway in 1978.
  382. After three federal trials, Kimberlin was convicted of the bombings in 1981 and sentenced to 50 years in prison. He'served 12 years and was released to a halfway house in Washington in 1993. Kimberlin was paroled in February 1994 and has lived in Maryland since his release.
  383. A U.S. parole commissioner in Baltimore will determine if Kimberlin should be imprisoned for violating conditions of his parole concerning the handling of his personal finances. A hearing examiner decided Friday that Kimberlin had not made a good faith effort to pay an Indiana court judgment owed to one of his bombing victims.
  384. No payments have been made on the court judgment against Kimberlin.
  385. "The hearing examiner based his recommendation on determinations that Kimberlin had committed a fraud in applying for a mortgage loan and that Kimberlin had failed to comply ... with the special condition placed on his parole requiring his good faith efforts to pay the DeLong judgment," read a custody notice from the U.S. attorney for Maryland and file'd in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
  386. "The examiner also found that (Kimberlin) had displayed and evidenced an attitude which was not compatible with continued suitability for parole, particularly in providing false and misleading information to his probation officer regarding his assets and income."
  387. In a 1983 court decision upheld by the Indiana Supreme Court, Kimberlin was ordered to pay $1.6 million to the family of Carl DeLong.
  388. In 1978, DeLong was injured by one of Kimberlin's bombs in the Speedway High School parking lot. He lost a leg and later committed suicide.
  389. With the accumulation of interest and court costs, DeLpng's family now is owed $3.8 million by Kimberlin, said Christine Hickey, an Indianapolis attorney representing the family.
  390. The DeLongs believe that Kimberlin is hiding money and are opposing an involuntary federal bankruptcy filing for Kimberlin sought by his sister, Cynthia Kimberlin, of Salt Lake City. A hearing on an attempt to dismiss the bankruptcy petition is scheduled for today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Maryland.
  391. Since his release, Kimberlin has been involved in an export business, has managed and been in a rock band.

  395. A U.S. parole commissioner in Chevy Chase, Md., on Friday revoked Brett Kimberlin's parole, ruling that he must serve 24 more months in federal custody.
  396. The commissioner noted Kimberlin made no attempt to repay the judgment and denied its existence when he applied for a $308,000 mortgage loan. The denial was also deemed a parole violation because Kimberlin made a false statement to a loan officer.
  397. Kimberlin will be in federal prison until June 1999, according to papers filed by the parole commission. While imprisoned, he will be expected to tell the commission and a federal bankruptcy trustee how much money he has made since 1993.

  399. Kimberlin once claimed he sold marijuana to Dan Quayle years ago when the former vice president was a law student. Quayle denied the allegation, and the Drug Enforcement Administration later concluded it was false.
