On Friday, a Manhattan jury deliberated for just under five hours to convict Jasson Melo, the abusive man who forced his child’s mother naked into the streets naked to humiliate her for talking to other men.

The self-proclaimed “most famous cuckold” was convicted coercion, assault, menacing, harassment and acting in a manner injurious to a child for the January incident. He was found not guilty verdict for a charge of unlawful imprisonment and obstructing the victim’s airway.

Jasson Melo appeared stone-faced at the defense table as the verdict was delivered. His face stayed expressionless as he was put in cuffs after Judge Robert Mandelbaum ordered him to be jailed, The New York Post reported.

The 26-year-old is facing seven years in prison when sentenced January 3rd.

Defense lawyer Theodore Herlich told the jury during Thursday’s closing argument that his client was simply suffering from a case of “penis envy” when he got angry after finding a picture of another man in the woman’s texts.

The woman, whose name is not being released, told jurors the duo two broken up. Melo contends that they were together and that she agreed to go out into the street naked to win back his affections.

However, the 24-year-old testified she only went outside because the man choked her and threatened to push her down the stairs and hit her with a heavy statue, all while leaving their 2.5-month-old baby girl on the bed. She said she had no idea Melo was going to film the degradation until she turned around and saw his phone as he mocked her for texting 17 people.

Jurors were told that Melo even tried to exploit the footage after it went viral by selling merchandise with quotes of his abusive tirade.

The panel heard testimony that the arrogant abuser appeared in a music video featuring a woman in a towel, and even recorded himself screaming in the street in Spanish that he was “Jasson the most famous cuckhold.”

“I thank the survivor in this case for her bravery in coming forward and testifying against her former partner at trial,” Manhattan DA Cy Vance announced in a statement. “Thankfully, because of her courage, he is being held accountable.”

Herlich revealed he plans on filing an appeal.
