18-year-old Cheyene Back has been sentenced to three months in prison after she was captured on CCTV writing “2shie” on the wall of the Hyde Park Cafe. She was with a group of other people who were also defacing the wall.

For its part the café wanted $200 to compensate them for the clean up. After being sentenced by Magistrate Ian McRae a second magistrate agreed to unconditional bail until an appeal can be heard.

The state government launched a crack down on graffiti just days ago. It is now illegal to sell spray paint to minors and spray cans can be confiscated from unsupervised minors. Graffiti clean up costs reportedly reach $100 million annually.
