Judge James Foster found Larry Ball guilty of two misdemeanor charges and fined him $50 for each offense. He also ordered Bell to pay court costs.
The 78-year-old man was cited after incident in March when he handed out religious pamphlets on a plaza about 30 feet from the Lincoln arena’s doors.
The matter went to trial in June, and the judge had taken his decision under advisement.
Ball has filed a civil lawsuit, alleging his free speech rights under the First Amendment have been violated.
