Community Service Hours for Extensive Graffitti


CC: s.430(1)(a) – Mischief x 7, RSA: s.41(1)(1) – Trespassing on Railway Property


My client spray painted a number of property items around Calgary, including a fence, cement barriers, and a bridge. One year later, he was caught on CPR property in rural Alberta, having spray painted several railway cars on different occasions.


My client received a suspended sentence and probation for a period of one year, with a condition that he perform community service hours by assisting the City of Calgary to remove grafitti around the city. The Crown was initially seeking restitution in an amount exceeding $15,000. No restitution was ordered.
