WAPAKONETA — Clay Parker, the 18-year-old Wapakoneta man charged with criminal mischief for damaging political campaign signs in Wapakoneta, pleaded guilty to the charges against him Wednesday in Auglaize Municipal Court.
He will be sentenced Oct. 2 on the third-degree misdemeanor counts.
Wapakoneta police in early August investigated several incidents of damage done to political campaign signs. One incident took place in the 1000 block of Auglaize.
A spokesman for the Wapakoneta Police Department said at the time that a report was being forwarded to prosecutor’s office for possible charges of criminal mischief involving a 17-year-old male and 18-year old-male, both from Wapakoneta. Police said three presidential political signs were spray-painted.
A similar incident was reported where a Joe Biden sign was slashed on West Pearl Street.
