The man who admitted to spray painting graffiti on pillars at the State Capitol will spend two years on probation and has to do 50 hours of community service.
A judge sentenced 20-year-old Jeffrey Handley Wednesday. He took a plea deal last week.
Handley says he spray painted the columns because it was his way of taking ownership over the people and city of Lansing, and that he has one regret.
"I would most likely draw the stick figures in chalk, if I could do anything differently. Knowing I might be caught, maybe I would put my little signature on the bottom right hand corner."
Handley has served in the Marines and said he didn't mean any disrespect - just that he saw it as a blank canvas for his work.
