Man sentenced to 16 months in Henrico for graffiti vandalism

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Graphic and often hateful messages in Richmond landed a 22-year-old in jail for three months. Now the man will have to serve 16 months for similar charges in Henrico County.

Andrew Bryant Souser pled guilty to charges in Henrico County for vandalism at Three Lakes Park. Today he was sentenced to pay more than $1,000 and sentenced to three years in jail, with one year, eight months suspended.

He admitted he spray painted the racial slurs in two Richmond parks and pled guilty to felony destruction of property and five misdemeanors as part of a plea deal.

Messages painted in the bathroom at Bryan Park. Cars were spray painted, sidewalks even construction equipment at Forest Hill Park.

It also happened at Three Lakes Park in Henrico County. But at that park, surveillance cameras were rolling and Souser quickly became the prime suspect.
