Let-off for railway graffiti vandal, 25
An “overgrown teenager” who caused £15,000 of graffiti damage on the railways was spared jail after a Southwark crown court judge told him he was “too old for this sort of thing”.
Jobless *** ***, 25, of Forest Hill, was caught by police with his hands covered in purple paint near St John's station in Lewisham. He was ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community order.
*** had been spotted drawing graffiti on a train after its driver had to make an emergency stop to avoid hitting him.
When officers searched his bedroom, they found photographs of his signature graffiti, the word "Prom", on railways and rolling stock all over London.
