This past Wednesday in a Manhattan criminal court, the 8 Improv Everywhere agents nabbed in the “No Pants 2k6” Mission were found guilty of “Disorderly Conduct” and sentenced to the maximum sentence of 15 days in prison at the Riker’s Island Correctional Facility (five male agents) and the Rose M. Singer Center (three female agents). We have delayed making this information public for several days as their attorney was investigating the feasibility of an appeal. It has now been made clear to us that no appeal will be granted. The 8 agents began their 15-day sentence today.
This is an incredible injustice. I am absolutely amazed that what was meant as a fun, harmless event resulted in such a ridiculous inconvenience for 8 law-abiding New Yorkers. Next weekend we will be organizing a pantless rally outside of city hall. More information to come very soon.
