The department announced that Joshua Paul Eanes pledged guilty to 95 counts of graffiti on Aug. 2 and received the maximum sentence — 90 days in jail, along with a civil judgement in the amount of $14,500. That’s the amount Downtown Greensboro Inc. paid to un-install his contributions to the illicit public art world.
