A member of the Park City Council was found guilty by a judge this week of disorderly conduct for an encounter with a group of cross-country skiers this past winter.
Councilman Jeremy Rubell, 43, was initially charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct for the offense, which took place on Dec. 29. The charge was later amended to an infraction.
A bench trial — meaning it was decided by the judge, not a jury — was held Wednesday in the Summit County Justice Court. Witnesses testified for both the prosecution and defense, and after closing arguments from both sides, the judge ultimately found Rubell guilty.
