The reporter, who at the time of the Manson trial, worked for the Los Angeles Herald-Exam- Iner and Is now a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, had refused to answer six questions when he appeared before the grand jury Concerning the sources of Information. Judge Choate previously had held him In contempt of the grand jury and Tuesday could have given him a sentence of five d.ays for each of the six counts of contempt or a total of 30 days. In his ruling, Choate said that he was vacating his previous contempt order and that he had been convinced that Farr was covered by a recent "shield" law passed by the California legislature giving reporters immunity to protect the source of their Information, Although refusing to identify them, Farr had previously said that two of the six attorneys in the Manson trial were the ones who gave him the information leading to a story about the "family's" plan to murder celebrities Including Frank Sinatra and Eli^beth Taylor. The grand gury last week Indicted Vincent T. BugUosl, chief prosecutor In the Manson trial, and Oaye Shlhn, a defense attorney, on grounds of perjury, charging they lied when they swore under oath they were not the source of the Farr story. Bugliosi appeared before Choate earlier Tuesday and entered a plea of Innocent to the perjury charge. Bugliosi, who was narrowly defeated earlier this year in his bid for the Democratic nomination for attorney general, surrendered in Superior Court on three counts charging him with lying to the jury when he denied giving a newsman information during the Manson trial. Superior Court Judge Raymond Choate set July 17 for a hearing on a motion to dismiss the charges agaist Bugliosi. Shlnn surrendered Monday and is scheduled for arraignment and pleading July 9.
