Caroline Coon appeared as a witness for the defence at the trial and she was later described by Felix Dennis as having done "a great job. She was English, she was upper class and she knew exactly what to do, she knew how to play the game", adding that "the judge thought that she was the most wonderful witness that he'd ever interviewed" (quoted in Jonathan Green's oral history of the sixties, Days In The Life: Voices From The English Underground, 1961-1971).
