2015 ORS 419C.461¹
Disposition for graffiti related offenses

(1) When a youth offender has been found to be within the jurisdiction of the juvenile court for having committed an act that if committed by an adult would constitute a violation of ORS 164.383 (Unlawfully applying graffiti) or 164.386 (Unlawfully possessing a graffiti implement) or criminal mischief and the act consisted of defacing property by creating graffiti, the court, in addition to any other disposition, may order the youth offender to perform:

(a) Personal service, as provided in ORS 419C.465 (Service to victim), consisting of removing graffiti; or

(b) If the victim does not agree to the personal service, community service consisting of removing graffiti at some location other than that defaced by the youth offender.

(2) In no case shall the youth offender, pursuant to this section, perform more hours of personal or community service than would be indicated by dividing the monetary damage caused by the youth offender by the legal minimum wage.

(3)(a) When a youth offender has been found to be within the jurisdiction of the juvenile court for having committed an act that if committed by an adult would constitute a violation of ORS 164.383 (Unlawfully applying graffiti), the court may find the parent, legal guardian or other person lawfully charged with the care or custody of the youth offender liable for actual damages to person or property caused by the youth offender. However, a parent who is not entitled to legal custody of the youth offender at the time of the act is not liable for the damages.

(b) The legal obligation of the parent, legal guardian or other person under this subsection may not exceed the liability provided in ORS 30.765 (Liability of parents for tort by child).

(c) The court may, with the consent of the parent, legal guardian or other person, order the parent, legal guardian or other person to complete a parent effectiveness program approved by the court. Upon the parent’s, legal guardian’s or other person’s completion of the program to the satisfaction of the court, the court may dismiss any other penalties imposed upon the parent, legal guardian or other person.
