In what is believed to be one of the stiffest penalties yet for a graffiti vandal in California, a 20-year-old Lakeside man was sentenced Wednesday to four years in jail and was ordered to pay restitution that could amount to $30,000. Kelly Gleghorn, a high school dropout who pleaded guilty to 74 misdemeanor counts of vandalism, bragged to police that he began his spree in Brawley about 2 1/2 years ago and worked his way toward the ocean spreading the tag "KELS" more than 1,000 times.
