Charles R. Garry

Charles Garry was an American civil rights attorney who represented a number of high-profile clients in political cases during the 1960s and 1970s, including the Peoples Temple in Jonestown during the 1978 tragedy that occurred at that location. In 1968, he was retained by the Black Panther Party both as their chief counsel, and to defend Huey P. Newton in the 1967 slaying of Oakland Police Officer John Frey. Newton was convicted on the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Subsequently, he defended Black Panther Chairman Bobby Seale. Garry was famous for flair and courtroom dramatics, and one policeman, under intense questioning, jumped from the witness stand and pulled his gun on him. Charles Garry served as President of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice in 1979.
