After a day of proceedings in Hillsborough, North Carolina, a graduate student at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill has been found guilty of misdemeanor defacing a public statue or monument.
“Judge Cabe says case doesn’t meet legal definition necessary for necessity defense, finds Maya guilty, but is continuing judgment in perpetuity. Asks about Maya’s ability to pay,” said Take Action Chapel Hill, a leftist coalition of supporters of the Silent Sam rioters that live-Tweeted the trial of Maya Little on Monday.

However, the judgment in perpetuity means that there will be no conviction or punishment. Little will not have to pay court fees, and will not be sentenced.
This round of communists vs. Americans ends in a tie, even though Little seemingly is totally off the hook.
There are 24 more people who have been charged in connection with the toppling of the monument.
