LONDON (AP) - A judge has cut the sentence of an activist who hit Rupert Murdoch with a shaving foam pie as the mogul testified to British lawmakers.

Jonathan May-Bowles was sentenced Tuesday to six weeks in jail for assaulting the 80-year-old media tycoon as he gave evidence to the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee on July 19.

A judge on Friday rejected his attempt to overturn the sentence, but reduced it to four weeks.
