A 30-year-old Swiss man who plastered walls throughout Vienna with his ‘Puber' graffiti tag has been sentenced to 14 months in prison for serious damage to property.

The judgement is final and Renato S. must serve at least ten months of his sentence.

He was found guilty of spraying over 100 tags on walls and doors. The judge said that his acts of vandalism amounted to damages of €50,000.

He was arrested in early March in a flat in Vienna’s Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus district, along with three other graffiti sprayers.

Vienna city council and Wiener Linien (Vienna public transport) gave witness statements, along with 30 private individuals and companies.
