(UPI)The Illinois Supreme Court Tuesday upheld the conviction of "Chicago Seven" defendant Abbie Hoffman for resisting arrest and displaying vulgar word on his forehead during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Hoffman, a leader of the "Yippies," was one of five men convicted last month in the trial of seven antiwar militants on charges of crossing state lines to incite riots at the convention.

The state Supreme Court ruled on separate incident arising out of the convention. On Aug. 28, 1968, Hoffman, 32, was arrested in a Loop restaurant on the complaint of an unidentified woman that he had an obscene four-letter word painted on his forehead. Hoffman appealed that his constitutional rights against pretrial publicity were violated because an assistant Chicago corporation counsel talked about the case on television on the eve of his trial. The Supreme Court ruled that the corporation counsel spoke only of a separate charge of disorderly conduct of which Hoffman was found innocent.
