Graffiti prison term overturned..!!!

In the continuing good news in the graffiti world, those two Brits that were sentenced a couple of months ago and had a big public outrage in the news, have been given a get out of jail free card according to the BBC.

Their prison sentences prompted protests by their parents and a petition on the social networking website Facebook.

Five-year Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (Asbos) were also quashed by Mr Justice Grigson sitting with Lord Justice Latham and Mr Justice Aikens in London.

They said the Asbos were “inappropriate” because the graffiti was not threatening or offensive.

The “positive features” in their cases should also have persuaded the original trial judge a community sentence was the appropriate punishment, said Mr Justice Grigson.

While we all wait for the release of Mr. Untouchable (and not that other Denzel version), the guys at The Social Consumer included an amazing excerpt from the upcoming book I Love Prison.
