A judge in New Hampshire has sentenced Marilyn Mason to pay a fine of about $1,400 and do 20 hours of community services within six months.
The court handed down the verdict after Manson pleaded no contest to the charge that he blew his nose and spit on a camerawoman at a concert at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford in 2019.
Manson, who was charged with two misdemeanor counts of simple assault relating to an incident with the videographer, initially pleaded not guilty to the charges but later changed his plea to no contest.
The judge described the incident in question as “egregious.” Manson was fined about $1,400, with $200 suspended, and will be allowed to complete his community service in California, as requested.
Manson also needs to alert police to any concerts planned for New Hampshire for the next two years and provide proof that his community service has been completed by no later than February 4, 2024.
According to a police affidavit, Manson approached videographer Susan Fountain in the stage pit and spat a “big lougee” at her. Later, he is said to have returned, kneeling and covering one nostril before blowing the other on her arms and hands.
Manson “blows a significant amount of mucous at Fountain,” a police sergeant who reviewed concert video footage said in the report. The camera then captures Manson “point and laugh at Fountain as she gets down and walks away,” reads the affidavit.
