A Fallon man who pleaded guilty last year of placing graffiti and defacing Hidden Cave north of Grimes Point was sentenced to the Nevada State Prison on Tuesday for violating his probation.

Justin Wayne McGilton appeared in Tenth Judicial District Court before Judge Thomas Stockard to answer charges of not being compliant in drug court.

“He didn’t participate and didn’t show up to court,” said Lane Mills, chief deputy district attorney.

McGilton was one of six men and a woman involved with vandalism at Grimes Point in March 2014. He was released on his own recognizance in October but was required to report to Court Services for random testing.

The felony charge stemming from the Grimes Point incident carries a penalty of one to four years in prison and a $5,000 fine. By law, it also carried a mandatory sentence of 10 days in jail, a fine between $400-$1,000, 100 hours of community service to abate the graffiti and a suspension of his driver’s license between six months to two years.
