A Norwalk city council candidate was found guilty on two counts of violating the city's yard maintenance laws at municipal court Thursday.

After the bench trial in which he represented himself, William Hood, 69, of 66 1/2 Christie Ave., said the proceedings went as he expected.

"I knew that was coming," he said about Judge John Ridge fining him $150 and court costs on the minor misdemeanor charges.

Ridge also noted it was Hood's 13th offense.
