Man Pleads Guilty in Church Vandalism Case

By  | 

A Gardnerville man is now admitting to a destructive prank that targeted a half-dozen Douglas County churches.

Jonathan Walker, 19, of Gardnerville will be sentenced in August after he pleaded guilty on Monday to six misdemeanor counts of damaging religious property.

Two of the minors also involved may face charges after they too admitted to the devilish acts. Meanwhile, the third teen involved has reportedly cut off his house arrest ankle cuff after taking off in a stolen car with a girl.

Walker and the three teenage friends spray-painted images of upside-down crosses, profanity, and the numbers"666," the so-called "Number of the Beast" on the outside walls of six churches in Douglas County on June 6, 2006.
