 18-year old gets 8 years for graffitti - sentence later reduced to 2 years
18-year old gets 8 years for graffitti - sentence later reduced to 2 years
Sebastian Perez is 18. He is a serial tagger. He has vandalized dozens of home. This is a fact. One judge was highly pissed off and sentenced him to 8 years. 8 solid years in hard time for spray painting. The sentence was reduced to 2 years because Texas law didn't allow for the 8 year sentence. picked by 2manyusernames 2 years ago

I am all for "don't do the crime if you can't do the time"

but 8 years for graffiti?

Our jails are over crowded as it is.

It is extremely expensive to keep them in jail.

Can't imagine what sort of person would come out of prison after spending 8 years when you are only 18.

How about making him pay off the damages?
How about making him repair the damages?

I am glad that it was reduced to 2 years, but even taking into account the marijuana possession his crimes didn't deserve 8 years.

That's an overreaction if there ever was one.

ugh. guys like these just really piss me off! i love art, and i think i'm a pretty mellow, live and let live kinda person most of the time - but i can never look at what these morons do and consider it to be anything more than the criminal destruction of property and blatant disrespect for the property owner & the neighbors.

i completely agree that 8 years in jail was excessive but it was TOTALLY worth it to see him cry like a girl at the thought of it. i sincerely hope he remembers that feeling vividly every time he sees a can of paint for years to come.
i think 2 years of actual time is good, but it should be followed with 6 years of community service repairing vandalism in his own town. then he'd still have his original 8 year sentence, he'd be making restitution and we wouldn't have to feed and house him.
