Although Shepard Fairey’s civil case with the Associated Press over the “Obama Hope” image has been settled in 2011, there’s still the criminal case.  Shepard has pleaded guilty to one count of criminal contempt for destroying documents, manufacturing evidence and other misconduct in his case involving his “Hope” poster of Barack Obama.  If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of six months in prison, a $5000 fine and a maximum term of supervised release of one year.

Good luck Shepard.  Thanks to LA Times for the tip.
