PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A 19-year-old Pittsfield man has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for vandalizing hundreds of graves at a city cemetery.
Jordan Errichetto pleaded guilty Tuesday to being one of three men who went on the vandalism spree last April.
Prosecutors say the men toppled and damaged gravestones, some centuries old; pulled up American flags on veterans' graves; and destroyed water spigots.
Errichetto is already serving four years for torching a porch in Dalton and will serve his new sentence at the same time.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that the judge called the crimes "reprehensible."
Errichetto's lawyer described him as a "follower" who "doesn't think for himself" and who showed terrible judgment.
One of the other men involved in the spree has already been sentenced and one awaits trial.
