L.A. Man Pleads No Contest To Destroying Donald Trump's Hollywood Star

Man sentenced for smashing Pres. Trump’s Hollywood star with

Back in July, a Los Angeles man took a pickaxe to the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame star that belonged to President Donald J. Trump.

Clay reportedly pled "no contest" to the charges of felony vandalism for destroying Trump's star over the summer.

Clay is also required to go to counseling and needs to "pay restitution of $9,404.46 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce" in accordance with a plea agreement, the DA's office said.

Clay was given the same sentence as James Otis, the construction worker who also destroyed Trump's star with a pickaxe and sledgehammer two years ago.

Austin Clay, 24, pleaded no contest to felony vandalism for causing more than $400 in property damage, according to the Blast.

Kuchar sinks eight birdies to take the lead in Mexico
Park Sung Hyun shot a 67 and fellow South Korean Kim Sei Young had a 68 to put them both within five strokes of the lead. He was leading by one shot when his tee shot sailed right and landed in bushes near rocks.

He said he wanted to "bring about positive political change" and didn't believe prosecutors should have charged him.

Clay is not the only one to attack Trump's star, given in recognition for his work on The Apprentice and with the Miss Universe organization.

Other protestors have taken to Trump's sidewalk star, though not all have been quite so destructive. Given not even a day in jail, the self-described activist was also ordered to pay $3,700 to the Hollywood Historic Trust and $700 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to fix the damage done to Trump's star. The council will instead send a formal letter to the overseeing bodies, Los Angeles city council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, asking them to consider it.

Otis, who was dressed as a construction worker at the time, said his goal was to remove the star, auction it, and donate any money raised to the women who accused Trump of sexual assault leading up to the presidential election.

Despite that policy, the city of West Hollywood unanimously passed a resolution in August to remove Trump's star, located near the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue.
