Man sentenced to probation for vandalizing wet concrete

A Superior man who left footprints on a section of wet concrete during Belknap Street reconstruction work will spend 18 months on probation.

Jordan R. Judson, 23, pleaded no contest Friday to felony criminal damage to property. In addition to probation, Judson was ordered to pay $13,127.50 in restitution for the damage. He must pay at least $733.33 per month until it's paid off. If he successfully completes probation, the charge is eligible to be expunged.

According to the criminal complaint:

Judson left about three dozen footprints along a section of freshly laid concrete near the intersection of Belknap Street and Banks Avenue on Aug. 2. He also wrote the name "Jordan" and drew a phallic symbol on the wet concrete.

Chippewa Concrete had to bring back workers and equipment to cut out the damaged section and apply new concrete to the site.
