A Corona graffiti vandal has been sentenced to eight months in prison after failing to complete 30 days of community service.
Moise Vilorio, 19, faced charges after writing his tag “Lil Capo” on public property on two occasions in October.
According to the criminal charges, Vilorio used a green marker to write “Lil Capo” on an electrical box at the intersection of 97th Street and 57th Avenue on Oct. 16, 2015, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown’s office said.
Later that day, he used the green marker to write his tags – “Lil Capo,” “FTP,” and “DPL157” – on two sidewalk metal benches in front of 96-17 57th Ave.
Vilorio pled guilty to two counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and two counts of third-degree bail jumping in February. He faced the jumping bail charges after failing to appear in Queens Criminal Court on March 31, 2015.
He was sentenced to complete 30 days of community service.
However, Vilorio was summonsed back to court after failing to complete his community service. Queens Criminal Court Judge Peter Vallone Jr. sentenced him to eight months in jail on his original conviction.
“New Yorkers are sick and tired of so-called graffiti ‘artists’ and their ego-driven vandalism of public property, which is a blight on the urban landscape and costs taxpayers thousands of dollars to clean up,” Brown said. “Unfortunately for the defendant, he couldn’t read the writing on the wall and continued to thumb his nose at society and the justice system by failing to honor the mandated provisions of his sentencing.”
El capo sounds like a complete idiot who should be sterilized.
