LONDON - A British man who threw a shaving-cream pie at media tycoon Rupert Murdoch was convicted Friday of assault and causing harassment.
Jonathan May-Bowles hurled a paper plate with a pile of shaving cream at Murdoch on July 19 as he was giving evidence to a Parliament committee in London over the tabloid phone-hacking scandal.
The 26-year-old protester admitted the crime when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court Friday.

Friday's hearing was adjourned and May-Bowles was ordered to return to court on Aug. 2 for sentencing.
