MANHATTAN (CN) - A jury found former prosecutor Bobby Constantino guilty of spray-painting City Hall and Tweed Courthouse with the anti-stop-and-frisk slogan "NYPD Get Your Hands Off Me."
Constantino never denied doing it.
At his trial Friday, the 34-year-old attorney told a six-person jury what motivated him to leave the red graffiti tags on the landmarks. He testified that none of his legal experience as a former prosecutor, defense attorney and nonprofit think tank analyst satisfied his sense of justice.
"Anything that I did through legitimate channels wasn't really resonating," Constantino said.
