Watts Towers Update: Rosie Lee Hooks found NOT GUILTY!

 

At the September 13 meeting of the Los Angeles Civil Service Commission, Rosie Lee Hooks was found not guilty on all charges stemming from having a mural of Charles Mingus painted on the Youth Arts Center named after him. The Commission found the evidence presented by the Department of Cultural Affairs to be seriously flawed. Hooks’ suspension has been revoked and the compensation from her suspension in April that was withheld will be paid.
