Two brothers from Brighton, who painted swastikas on a Jewish family’s house in the community, have been sentenced.
The 14-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man, whose name wasn’t released to protect the identity of the youth, each pled guilty in Cobourg provincial court to four counts of mischief.
The swastikas were painted on the front door of a Harbour Street home and a car on June eighth, and more swastikas and painted lines appeared on the house the next day. The 19-year-old was sentenced to seven days in jail, will be on probation for two years, and has to pay the victim restitution of almost 17-hundred dollars for the cleanup costs. His younger brother was put on probation for 18 months, and will have to perform one-hundred hours of community service.
