Uriel Landeros sentenced to 2 years for vandalizing Menil Collection Picasso
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A man who plead guilty to vandalizing a Picasso painting at a Houston museum has been sentenced for the crime.
Defense attorneys tell us Uriel Landeros received a 2-year prison sentence for the graffiti. He's been in custody since January, and his lawyer says he'll likely be released on parole immediately.
Landeros was caught on camera defacing Picasso's "Woman in a Red Armchair" at the Menil Collection last June. He was on the run for several months.
A charge of criminal mischief was dismissed.
