TOWN OF LOCKPORT —
Mongielo is slated to begin his term on May 17, but Housh said he would ask for a stay of sentence. That would give him time to file an appeal with county court. Mongielo will not be incarcerated while the appeal is being considered.
Mongielo, who appeared in court with dozens of supporters, has said the sign was used to promote community events and fundraisers. He has said the court proceedings were an attack on free speech and are politically motivated.
“It is a sad day in America,” Mongielo said after court.
