Lawyer charged with spray-painting garage of juror who convicted him in disorderly conduct case

Convicted in March of disorderly conduct, an Iowa lawyer is now facing a new criminal case in which he is accused of spray-painting the words “GUILTY” and “JUSTICE” on the garage and siding of an unidentified juror in the case.

Raymond M. Tinnian, 54, faces misdemeanor charges of harassment, tampering with a witness or juror and criminal mischief, according to the Iowa Press-Citizen and the Gazette.

Coralville police said Tinnian also left a letter at the home referring to the verdict in the trial in the disorderly conduct case. It allegedly stated “No cops or you won’t live to see 70. I watch you I see your every move.”

The articles don’t include any comment from Tinnian or his legal counsel and he did not immediately respond to a phone message from the ABA Journal.

He was fined $625 in April in the disorderly conduct case.
