A Brooklyn judge released a man accused of urinating on and destroying religious statues outside of a Williamsburg church.

Andrew Oshesky, 28, was arrested on Monday for two counts of third-degree criminal mischief as a hate crime and prohibited littering charges.

Oshesky, a Bushwick resident, was seen on video on Dec. 2 allegedly urinating on the base of a large angel statue in front of a church at 184 Metropolitan Ave., then knocking over two statues.

The faces of the statues were broken.

The next morning, the priest of Our Lady of Consolation Roman Catholic Church found the crumbled statues and called the police.

On Monday evening, Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Keisha Espiñal released Oshesky on his own recognizance and ordered him back to court on Jan. 11.

If convicted, Oshesky faces up to seven years in prison.
