Singer found innocent in controversial case

Folk singer Dean Reed was found innocent Tuesday of trespassing in an Oct. 29 demonstration in Delano over a controversial new high-voltage power line crossing central Minnesota farm country. Four leading Soviet composers appealed to President Carter late last week to intervene in the case and oder Reed's release from jail. Reed refused to post bail and went on a hunger strike in jail until he was released on his own recognizance the day before the trial began. Vladimir Reshetilov, a correspondent for the Soviet news angency Tass, was present at the start of the trial and described it as an example of human rights violations in the United States. Reed, born in Denver, Colo., now lives in East Germany.
