Probation for graffiti teen
THE writing was on the road for Janette Margaret Williams.
The 19-year-old used bright pink spray paint to write her first name on a Woorabinda road in November last year.
Williams also wrote "JMB" in 80cm-long letters in blue spray paint.
She pleaded guilty to wilful damage by graffiti and entering premises with intent to commit an indictable offence for a separate incident when she appeared in Rockhampton Magistrates Court this week.
Police prosecutor Steve Atkinson said CCTV footage at the Brunswick Hotel on March 12 showed Williams and a group of co-offenders distracting an employee to steal three six-packs of VB.
While the worker gathered casket wine and other alcohol requested by Williams and her co-offenders, they took the VB from the counter.
Mr Atkinson said Williams had a very limited criminal history.
Magistrate Annette Hennessy sentenced her to nine months probation.
