The Lansing man responsible for defacing the state capitol building, Jeffrey Handley, has been sentenced to 24 months probation.
He must also pay restitution. This could be around $3,000, though the cost has not been fully determined.
Handley, 20, pled guilty in November to spray painting on pillars, and a near-by war memorial.
The graffiti was found in September; stick figures on the pillars, and the phrase, "give art a chance," on the memorial.
Efforts to fully remove the graffiti, including light sanding, has not fully removed the stains.
Maintenance crews have previously said they hope the graffiti will fade over time.
