Artistic Freedom Defense Flushed: A rock singer in Milwaukee who defecated on stage and tossed feces at the audience was convicted of disorderly conduct after a jury rejected the argument that he was exercising artistic freedom. Kevin Michael Allin, 34, known as G.G. Allin, was lead singer of the defunct group Toilet Rockers. As a result of last week's verdict, he could be sentenced to 90 days in jail and fined $1,000. Sentencing is Sept. 13.
