Princeton prof accused of stealing lawn signs to tutor students exchange for dismissed charges


PRINCETON, New Jersey — The Princeton University professor accused of stealing 21 lawn signs belonging to a computer repair business will tutor students in exchange for the charges being dismissed.

John Mulvey must perform 120 hours of community service by teaching students in the Trenton area about finance and computer science, or prosecutors can reopen the case.

Owner Ted Horodynsky videotaped Mulvey driving off with the signs that he placed on clients' lawns in July. Mulvey, a professor of operations research and financial engineering, said he was just picking up debris.

Mulvey's attorney, Kim Otis, tells The Times of Trenton ( ) her client is happy to do community service and have the charges dismissed.

Horodynsky says Mulvey has been humiliated enough.
