Miya Ponsetto, who’s been labeled “SoHo Karen,” has just been indicted on a slew of charges — including 2 hate crimes — over the infamous iPhone incident in a hotel lobby.
According to court records, a grand jury indicted Ponsetto Wednesday, hitting her with 2 felony counts of unlawful imprisonment in the 2nd degree as a hate crime and 2 misdemeanor counts of aggravated harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Ponsetto’s attorney, Paul D’Emilia, pled not guilty on her behalf. D’Emilia railed on Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance, telling TMZ that “instead of helping to foster a civil and enlightened resolution to an unfortunate incident between two young people, DA Vance chose a craven and opportunistic path in indicting, with felony hate crime charges.
D’Emilia believes the charges are an overreach, calling it absurd and shameful.
