Ohio Teen Breaks The Law... Gets A New Job
An Ohio teenager convicted of spray-painting graffiti on a train car got a new painting job as part of a unique sentence. Avery White was found guilty of criminal mischief for his paint job on the train car, which is owned by a rail company.
The judge in the case, known for less-than-conventional sentencing, gave White options to pay his debt to society. He could spend ten days in jail or paint the railings outside the Painesville Municipal Court with a toothbrush. He chose the paint job.
A news crew watched as White sanded down the handrails, then repainted them with a toothbrush. Judge Michael Cicconetti said after handing down the sentence, “It may take you awhile, but that's the lesson to be learned.” https://bit.ly/32L0EqW
