John and Yoko were found guilty of possession. They were fined a-hundred-and-fifty quid, but were cleared of wilful obstruction. John’s lawyer tried to elicit a little sympathy by claiming that the stress of the arrest led to Yoko’s miscarriage (“an ounce-and-a-half of compassion is not too much to ask,” he said). John was reportedly worried that she’d get deported (because she wasn’t a British citizen).

The American authorities would rake over this conviction every time John tried to re-enter the US (especially when he was coming to protest against the war). is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
