State Senator Gets Probation for Assaulting Photographer

Monday, March 21, 2011

Brooklyn State Senator Kevin Parker was sentenced to three years' probation and anger management classes following his misdemeanor conviction stemming from a physical confrontation with a New York Post photographer.

Parker, a Democrat, was found guilty of two misdemeanors for assaulting on a photographer in 2009. Prosecutors say Parker broke the photographers' finger when he tried to grab his camera. Parker was facing foreclosure of his home at the time. The photographer's car and camera were also damaged, leading to the criminal mischief misdemeanor.

Parker won his sixth term in November.
