He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

In 1971, at the age of 48 years old, John was alive when in March, Congress passed the Twenty-sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which lowered the voting age to 18 (from 21).

The states quickly ratified the Amendment and it was signed into law on July 1st by President Richard Nixon.

In 1986, John was 63 years old when on September 8th, the Oprah Winfrey Show went into national syndication. A popular talk show, it was number 1 in the ratings since its debut. The last show aired on May 25, 2011.
