State Sen. Gets Probation in Photog Scuffle



    Inspiring Stories of Hope

    State Sen. Kevin Parker has been sentenced to three years probation for a scuffle with a New York Post photographer.

    Parker was convicted in December of the misdemeanor charge stemming from the incident with the photographer, William Lopez, outside Parker's home in May 2009.

    Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan announced the sentence Monday by State Supreme Court Justice Neil Firetog.

    Parker was also ordered to pay $672 in restitution to the Post for damage to Lopez's camera, and $1194 to the photographer for damage to his car.

    The judge also prohibited Parker from having any contact with the photographer.

    Parker represents the 21st district in Brooklyn.
