Chili Peppers Singer Convicted: Anthony Kiedis, lead singer of the rock group Red Hot Chili Peppers, was convicted in a Virginia Circuit Court Tuesday of sexual battery and indecent exposure after a concert at George Mason University in Fairfax County, Va., on April 21, 1989. Jurors recommended that Kiedis, 27, be fined $1,000 on each charge. The Circuit Court trial was an appeal of a ruling by a lower court judge, who found Kiedis guilty of both charges and sentenced him to 60 days in jail.
