Sinatra Kidnapper: Doo-Be-Doo-Be-Doo

01/12/1999 at 12:00 AM EST

California's Supreme Court agreed Wednesday to rehear a case involving the right of Frank Sinatra Jr.'s kidnapper to sell his story and hence to review the constitutionality of the state's "Son of Sam" law, which bars criminals from making money off their crimes. The court's decision to take up the case reopens a hard-fought legal battle which in May saw a state appeals court rule unanimously that Barry Keenan could not be allowed to sell the story of the 1963 kidnapping to a movie studio for $1 million.
