NY: Ex-Student in Koran Flush Freed


A former Pace University student accused of flushing two Korans down a campus toilet was freed without bail after being arraigned on criminal mischief charges yesterday.

"Get that camera out of my face!" Stanislav Shmulevich, 23, screamed, making an obscene gesture at a photographer outside Manhattan Criminal Court.

Shmulevich was a student at Pace when he threw the Muslim holy books in the toilet on Oct. 13 and Nov. 21, police said.

He was busted after cops discovered a surveillance camera that filmed him leaving the meditation room where the Korans had been kept before the vandalism.

Prosecutors asked for $1,500 bail for Shmulevich, who now works at a European banking firm. But a judge denied the request, citing his otherwise clean record.
