The conviction of a former Seneca Falls man that vandalized cars at the Bill Cram Chevrolet dealership five years ago has been upheld by the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court in Rochester.
Andrew Graves and two other people were arrested for intentionally damaging close to 60 cars at the dealership during the late evening hours of March 23rd, 2013. Graves and the two other men keyed, or scratched the paint on various body panels of the cars. He was sentenced to 1.5 to 4.5 years in prison after being found guilty by a Seneca County jury of felony criminal mischief and conspiracy. In his appeal, Graves claimed the evidence didn’t prove he intentionally damaged the cars or acted with the two other defendants. The court rejected those claims.
Graves and the other men were also ordered to pay 40-THOUSAND dollars in restitution.
