Man Ordered To Pay Restitution In Significant Graffiti Case

Colorado National Monument

National Park News

On the morning of March 20th, rangers discovered significant graffiti in five locations throughout the park, including defacement of two historic walls. Following an investigation, they identified the suspect as 18-year-old Devon Stevenson, who subsequently confessed. Charges were filed against Stevenson with the United States Attorney’s Office for defacement of mineral resources and vandalism (major graffiti), a Class B misdemeanor which carries a maximum sentence of six months imprisonment and a $5,000 fine. In court on April 10th, the defendant signed a plea agreement calling for over $1,400 in restitution (the cost of repair and removal), a $200 fine, and 40 hours of useful public service. In her ruling, the magistrate, after seeing before and after photos, complimented the park on its careful and thorough yet quick restoration of the historic structures.
