    NO PICTURES WERE ALLOWED INSIDE THE COURTROOM. THE ONE INCIDENT TO INTEREST CAMERAMEN WAS A FIGHT BETWEEN ONE OF THEM AND THE GUARD AT THE COURTHOUSE GARAGE WHICH HAD BEEN DECLARED 'OFF LIMITS' FOR THE DAY. THEY DID MANAGE HOWEVER, TO GLIMPSE THE 48-YEAR-OLD SINGER FATHER AS HE LEFT THE HEARING AND SPED OFF IN A CAR.

    THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME SINATRA SENIOR HAD TAKEN THE WITNESS BOX IN THE TRIAL, AND HE FIRMLY DENIED CONTENTIONS BY DEFENCE LAWYERS THAT THE KIDNAPPING OF HIS SON ON DECEMBER 8TH LAST YEAR, WAS ONLY A PUBLICITY STUNT.
