"Hope" Poster Creator Mug Shot

Help Support Ranchers.net:

Meet Shepard Fairey.

The famed street artist who created the Barack Obama "Hope" poster is pictured here in a United States Marshals Service mug shot snapped last month. On February 24, Fairey, 42, pleaded guilty to a federal criminal contempt charge stemming from copyright litigation brought by the Associated Press.

Fairey copped to destroying electronic records and creating phony documents in an attempt to stymie the lawsuit, which accused him of basing the Obama artwork on an AP photo.

Scheduled to be sentenced July 6, Fairey faces a maximum of six months in prison on the misdemeanor count.

If he had kept a copy of the BC he could get a pardon.. . :?
Imagine my surprise to hear a criminal is linked to Obama :shock: :eek: :wink:
