Poster Boy Gets Jail Time

The Wall Street Journal reports that NY subway ad slasher, Poster Boy, has been sentenced to 11 month jail time after violating the terms of his probation, stemming from felony charges of criminal mischief. The 28 year old graffiti artist, whose real name is Henry Matyjewicz, was taken into custody late last week after failing to appear at a probation hearing. Matyjewicz’s lawyer said “He’s quite shocked. It was completely unexpected,” and plans on appealing the judgement.

On the upside, the news is bound to help sales of Poster Boy’s upcoming book, which he can then funnel right back into legal fees. Joy.
