The Las Vegas City Council last week approved an ordinance targeting graffiti. Much of it reflects an existing state law.
The ordinance makes defacing of another person’s property with a variety of materials, including charcoal, to be a misdemeanor punishable by a fine from $150 to up to $500, court costs, 40 hours of community service and a possible 90 days in jail in addition to payment of restitution for the property damage.
It is already illegal in the state to do graffiti without the permission of the property owner.
