Spraypaint spree vandals get more time to pay piper

Jordan Denton and Nicholas Bonser, who were given 90 days to pay restitution for their Jan. 25 spray-painting vandalism spree, now have more time to make financial amends.

According to court documents, District Court Judge Gerald Purnell has granted the two 18-year-old Berlin residents until the end of their two-year probation to pay make good on the court order.

Under the terms of their plea bargain, Denton and Nicholas Bonser, who were sentenced on June 19, had 90 days to pay $8,843.06 in restitution, to complete 150 hours of community service each, and to write letters of apologies to the town of Berlin for spray-painting graffiti on cars and buildings.

Those 90 days expired Sept. 19.

Court documents did not mention if any restitution had been paid, community service had been completed or letters had been received. Town of Berlin officials also reported that they hadn’t seen an apology letter from either Bonser or Denton.

These losers will not pay a penny or write an apology letter. Likely too illiterate to even write. Time will tell.

Thank you Judge Purnell for sending a message that vandalism will not be tolerated.

What kind of message does this send? In other municipalities failure to pay results in jail time.

Is that the boy or girl from the case? Hard to tell anymore with the gays around flamboyantly.
And 5:00..... They're adults. 18+ no need for parents to be held responsible. The judge needs to be held accountable for this.
