Parker Cleared of Felony
December 7th, 2010

Sen. Kevin Parker was cleared of felony assault charge by a Brooklyn jury today but convicted of two misdemeanors. If he had been found guilty of a felony he would have automatically lost his senate seat.

Parker was convicted of two counts of criminal mischief relating to his alleged assault of a NY Post photographer who was taking pictures of Parker’s Flatbush home that was in foreclosure.

Parker rejected a plea deal earlier this year that would have seen him convicted of misdemeanor charges. Now Parker faces up to two years in jail when he is sentenced next year.

Parker is known for having a quick temper and was involved in a verbal and possible physical altercation with Sen. Diane Savino last year.
