3 Suburban Teen Girls Accept Plea For Defacing Detroit Buildings

DETROIT (AP) – Three suburban teenagers will perform 60 hours of community service for defacing two buildings in downtown Detroit.

Eighteen-year-old Isabella Meteer and 17-year-olds Mackenzie Snitgen and Mary Harder were sentenced Monday as part of a plea deal in Wayne County Circuit Court. They’d been charged with malicious destruction of property for the spray-painting on buildings on Michigan Avenue and Griswold Street on June 22.

The community service includes cleaning graffiti from buildings. They also must pay a total of $2,000 in restitution for the damage and court fees.

The teens are from Grosse Pointe Woods, a community east of Detroit.

Harder’s attorney Samuel Churikian tells The Detroit News that his client has “learned a lesson.” Snitgen’s attorney David Draper says the deal allows them to “give back to the city.”
