Vandal painted railings with toothbrush to fulfill ‘creative sentence’

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (WOIO) - A fresh coat of paint on the railings outside the courthouse in Painesville will great visitors after today, when a graffiti vandal is scheduled to serve a creative sentence recently handed down by Judge Michael A. Cicconetti.

Avery White was given the option to spend 10 days in jail or paint railings with a toothbrush as punishment for spray painting a caboose owned by the Grand River Railway.

“I’m owning up to it and taking full responsibility for it,” White told Judge Cicconetti at his July 11 sentencing hearing.
