There men charged with a vandalism spree in a neighborhood in Charlottesville faced a judge Friday morning.
Yoni Ortiz, Saul Urrea and Marvin Bush each received a suspended jail sentence, will have to complete community service and will have to pay restitution to the victims.
Between June 2nd and 4th, police received reports of multiple vehicles and a home being vandalized in and around the Fry's Spring neighborhood. Car windows were broken and some vehicles had been spray painted with racial slurs.
Shortly after 2 AM on June 4, an officer on patrol witnessed a man hitting a parked vehicle with a baseball bat in the Johnson Village neighborhood. The officer arrested Orbitz and Urrea, while Bush was released without being charged at the time.
Investigators were able to determine that all three men were responsible for the vandalism in the area. All three men cooperated with police, and each has pleaded guilty to two counts of destruction of property.
