A Cook County jury has found Gregory Koger guilty of criminal trespass, resisting arrest, and simple battery in the aftermath of an incident at the Ethical Humanist Society last fall. As we reported, Koger had been videotaping Communist activist Sunsara Taylor as she made a statement protesting the cancellation of a speech she'd been planning to give there. After the jury verdict Thursday, Koger's bond was revoked; he's been jailed pending sentencing September 8. Koger's attorney, Scott Frankel, said today, "We're disappointed in the verdict. We think it was incorrect. We will appeal."
