Michael Bergeron, 23, is being held at the Rockingham County jail pending sentencing following his one-day trial in Rockingham County Superior Court Thursday.
A YouTube video of Bergeron having his head slammed against a wall on Nov. 11, 2009, while in custody at the Seabrook police station led to the indictment earlier this month of police officer Mark Richardson.
Assistant County Attorney Karen Springer told jurors that Bergeron and another man, Nikoletti Nachef, were seen by a resident of the complex walking in the parking lot, each with a laptop under their shirts.
The man confronted Bergeron and Nachef, asking them what they were doing and then claimed he was a Hampton police officer, prompting Nachef to run, according to court testimony.
"He is presumed innocent. He is an innocent man as he sits here today," Gleason told jurors.
