A 19-year-old Eudora man has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal damage for spray-painting the Eudora school district’s stadium earlier this year, an act that caused several thousand dollars in damage.

Spencer Travis Board, a 2011 Eudora High School graduate, entered the plea in front of Douglas County District Judge Michael Malone on Wednesday afternoon, according to the judge’s office.

Prosecutors alleged that on July 7, Board caused more than $25,000 in damage to the $2 million stadium that opened last fall on the Eudora High School campus, 2203 Church St. Turf, a concession stand, concession stand light-cover lenses, the track and restroom entrances were damaged.

Police also initially detained two juveniles in connection with the case.

Malone is scheduled to sentence Board at 10 a.m. Nov. 23.

Number one, yes and we wonder why certain groups of Americans view our justice system as a joke.

How can $25,000 in damage be a misdemeanor? Why are some charged with felonies for this amount of damage and Spencer not be? Selective enforcement of laws?

The damage was fixed. There was no personal damage or injury. He should be able to pay for the mistake however the judge determines and get on with his life. Our prison system isn't geared towards spray painters.
