Freda Reiter – Sirica reads verdict, 1974 – Pastel Drawing

The back of this drawing carries Reiter’s label “Sirica reads verdict, 1974,” but it’s difficult to establish which trial it depicts. Over the course of the year, Sirica presided over many Watergate-related trials and hearings, often involving minor players ready to plead guilty.
