Liberty Bell Attack Earns Prison Term

April 24, 2002|Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — A self-described wanderer who pulled a hammer from a backpack and pounded on the Liberty Bell last year was sentenced Tuesday to nine months in prison.

Mitchell A. Guilliatt, 28, was also given five years' probation and ordered to repay the $7,093 cost of repairing the gouge marks he made in the symbol of liberty.

Guilliatt will serve his time in Boise, Idaho, near the home of his mother, where he had been confined and electronically monitored since the incident.
