Title:Mickey Lima is released from jail, Dec. 10, 1951, Federal Building, downtown Los Angeles
Date:1951 Dec. 10
Description:

Albert "Mickey" Lima clutches his parcels and smiles broadly as he is released from a Los Angeles jail. Lima, the leader of the Northern California Communist Party, and 14 other Communists were indicted under the Smith Act, which made it a federal crime to advocate the overthrow of any United States government by force or violence. Lima was arrested in August 1951 and served 138 days in jail before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered his release on bail.
