Graffiti vandal pleads guilty for spray-painting subway cars, is sentenced to $18,000 fine and five years probation

Prolific graffiti vandal  CETE will pay $18,000 and spend five years on probation after pleading guilty to criminal mischief in connection with a series of decorations he made in subway stations, yards and cars in the Bronx from January 2013 through March of 2014.

The 32-year-old tagger, who already spent 30 days in the clink for his actions, was nabbed in May thanks to his own self-promotional videos, which he gleefully posted on YouTube.

Police scoured social media and used video from train stations to catch the prodigious tagger can-handed, the DA’s office said
