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.
