May 5, 2009 Staff Report

A Woodside graffiti vandal was sentenced to six months jail following a subway tagging spree, according to the Queens District Attorneys office.

The graffiti “artist” and Fashion Institute of Technology student admitted to causing thousands of dollars in damage, including the tagging of the MTA subway cars.

Danielle Bremner pleaded guilty to a felony criminal mischief charge and was sentenced in Manhattan Criminal Court.

It won’t put a dent in the transit system’s massive budget hole, but as part of her plea deal, Bremner, 27, will pay $10,000 in restitution – though prosecutors said the damage to city trains totaled $35,000.
