Guilty As Charged For East Sixth Purse Snatcher

After viewing a highly publicized surveillance video that shows a man sucker punching a woman outside the Liberty Bar on East Sixth Street and stealing her purse, a jury deliberated for just a half hour before finding Steven Keller guilty of aggravated robbery yesterday; he'll be sentenced today.

The trial was delayed for about a month because Keller's father didn't want to testify and identify his son in the surveillance video. During the trial, KVUE reports that Keller called the tape "humiliating."
