Capitol, War Memorial Vandal Sentenced


An Ingham County judge told Jeffery Handley he will not be going in jail Wednesday morning. Instead he'll be put on two years probation, ordered to pay a minimum of $3,000 in restitution and 50 hours of community service.

Handley told the judge he now has a healthy respect for the law and regrets what he did. He admitted to spray painting stick figures on the pillars of the capitol building and writing the phrase "Give art a chance" on the back of the war memorial back in September.

Last month, the 20-year-old pleaded guilty to one count of destruction of a memorial. The plea was in exchange for dropping two counts of malicious destruction of property.

Handley also said if he could have done anything differently, he would have done it in chalk.
