NEW YORK – Two men convicted of parachute-jumping from the top of New York's One World Trade Center have been sentenced to community service and each ordered to pay $2,000 in fines.
A judge Monday sentenced James Brady to 250 hours of community service and Andrew Rossig to 200 hours.
The men were convicted in June of reckless endangerment and other misdemeanors. Another man also was convicted and is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 17.
Prosecutors say the men jumped from the building when it was under construction in the early morning hours of Sept. 30, 2013. The men were arrested six months later.
The jumps caused considerable embarrassment to authorities over security at the building, the tallest in the United States.
Defense lawyers argued the jumps were well planned and weren't reckless.
