Poster Boy Sentenced to Community Service

12.17.09 Will Sherman

1_poster_boy_tough_biatch-copy Nearly a year after his arrest at a Soho art opening, Poster Boy has been sentenced to community service. The ad altering artist was given 210 hours of work yesterday in Brooklyn Supreme Court after pleading guilty to two counts of criminal mischief, a felony and misdemeanor, according to the Post.

Characterizing the sentence as “somewhat extreme,” his lawyer offered the impression “that the DA’s office took a very harsh view of this case,” which appeared to focus on one of the artist’s Youtube appearances creating the “Tough Biatch” piece above. Hopefully the city puts Poster Boy to work doing something productive, like cutting down the illegal NPA advertising clogging the city. |NY Post|
