Michael Fay Controversy
Vandalism (n)

Action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property.

Teens in CO spray painted a house - what is the maximum punishment would be for the one actually spray painting, or the others who were just there on lookout?
They would all be charged for the same crime equally, plus an additional count of conspiracy.
If they are juveniles with no priors, they will probably get probation, fines & restitution to the owner of the house (have to pay to fix the damage caused by the paint).
If they are juveniles with priors they would be sentenced based on the severity of those priors and deferred sentences.
What is the attitude toward Vandals and vandalism in the US? (look at this issue through our own cultural lens)
