Florida man charged with vandalism after sticker protest of judge

Business owner Joe Mazzara is not happy with Judge Jack Helinger of Florida’s Sixth Judicial Circuit and felt that he needed to voice that opinion. Mr. Mazzara, who owns a restoration and remodeling company in Largo, set up a website calling for Judge Helinger to be removed from the bench, made bumper stickers with his website’s URL on them, and then proceeded to post them all over street signs in various parts of Pinellas County. As WFLA News Channel 8 reports, it’s because of those bumper stickers that the 67-year-old man now faces 12 counts of vandalism.

Good idea

bad execution. I've heard of people putting stickers on the back of signs...

Of course they would charge

Of course they would charge him with vandalism. He officially became a thorn in the side of someone with some degree of power in his local government. That basically put a target on his back. He should have been more careful about where he posted the stickers. Better yet, maybe he should have bought ads in the local paper or rented a billboard.
