Pipe Vs The City Of Oxford

Mr. Lawrence Williams of Black Berry Cottage, West Cot, was arrested on the 9th May for his suspected part in defacing public property.

Mr. Williams was arrested at his home late Sunday Morning, where police officers found paint spattered clothes, spray cans and graffiti paraphernalia.

Mr. Williams has admitted to the crime of defacing public property, the defendant confessed the crime was meant as a publicity stunt to promote his media website, Lights in the Woods.

The graffiti which was painted on Oxfordshire’s Cowley road, on the broadside of popular chicken restaurant Nando’s early Sunday morning. The graffiti depicted a headless horseman riding beneath the L.I.T.W banner.

With a previous caution by police for a similar offence, early in 2008, the recommended sentence was that Mr. Williams pay £5000 in criminal damages and serve 100 hours of community service. Mr. Williams escaped a custodial sentence because of his work with The Home Farm Trust, a national based charity that supports people with learning disabilities. The defence asked for a lenient sentence because of Mr. Williams’s involvement with charity projects and felt that he could do more good serving the community than serving a prison sentence.
