Norwalk High School vandals convicted

The three co-defendants in the Norwalk High School vandalism incident in late spring were convicted and sentenced Wednesday.

Two of the accomplices, Shane A. Fulton, 18, of 497 Hasbrock Road, and a 17-year-old Whittlesey Avenue boy, admitted to one charge each of vandalism. A 17-year-old Christie Avenue boy entered a similar plea to complicity to commit vandalism. All the charges would be fifth-degree felonies if committed by an adult.

The defendants were ordered to pay restitution totaling nearly $1,685. Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said that amount included $300 for equipment that had to be rented for the cleaning process and wages for maintenance personnel.

The May 25 incident involved a large amount of graffiti on the roof, a sidewalk and on a bed sheet hung from the front entrance of the school. There also was spray paint on cafeteria windows that only were accessible from the roof and a poem that was spray-painted on the sidewalk.
