Singapore's "Sticker Lady", Samantha Lo, was sentenced on Wednesday to serve 240 hours of community service, or roughly the equivalent of 30 working days, within a year.
Last month, the 26-year-old artist pleaded guilty to seven counts of mischief, while her alleged accomplice Anthony Chong pleaded guilty to two counts of abetting her and one of mischief.
Lo has been served a Day Reporting Order for three months to a reporting centre – this means that she has to report regularly to a centre run by the Singapore Prisons Service and undergo counseling and other programmes.
Chong was sentenced to 160 hours of community service within a year and also given a Day Reporting Order for three months.
Lo and Chong are behind the "My Grandfather Road" series of street signs and stickers that were found painted on sections of Robinson and Maxwell roads in May last year.
Circular stickers printed with various captions were also found on a pavement near Lau Pa Sat. Captions included taglines such as “Press once can already” and “Anyhow paste kena fine”. It's understood that these stickers were also found on other road traffic signs across Singapore.
