NEW YORK, NY –– Civil rights leader and President of National Action Network Reverend Al Sharpton, nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump, and the family of Keyon Harrold Jr., will hold a news conference on June 30th to respond to breaking news in the case regarding "SoHo Karen" who falsely accused Harrold Jr. of stealing her cellphone last December.

The news conference will take place at City Hall Park, in New York City starting at 4:30 PM ET.

Background

In December 2020, Keyon Harrold and his son were racially profiled in an Arlo hotel in Manhattan by Miya Ponsetto, falsely accusing Keyon Harrold Jr. of stealing her phone and physically attacking him. The incident was caught on video and went viral.

The father and son were staying at the hotel and did not receive support from management. In fact, the hotel manager empowered Ponsetto by asking the minor to give his cell phone up to prove that he was innocent of the false allegations.

Her cell phone was later found in an Uber.

Ponsetto was arrested on January 8, 2021, in California.
