A Miami pastor was convicted Tuesday of trying to cash in on counterfeit artworks that mimicked valuable pieces by British art luminary Damien Hirst.

A Manhattan jury found Kevin Sutherland guilty of attempted grand larceny. He could face up to seven years in prison at his sentencing, set for May 19. Defense lawyer Sanford "Sam" Talkin said Sutherland was disappointed in the verdict and would explore options for appealing.
