CLARK, Mo., Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A Missouri man who paid a youngster to destroy a World War II monument has agreed to banishment from town as part of his punishment.

Rex Barstow Sr., 57, who was convicted in December of paying a 14-year-old ne'er-do-well to knock over a monument to Clark native Gen. Omar Bradley and spray paint a city fire department shed, was sentenced Jan. 20 by Howard County Circuit Judge Scott Hayes to serve 60 days in the Randolph County Jail, The Columbia (Mo.) Daily Tribune reported Thursday.

Barstow is to serve four years of probation "and by agreement, stay out of Clark." He was also ordered to pay $7,563 restitution.

"From those in town that I've talked to, they seem to be well pleased" with the sentence, said Clark Mayor Homer Colley, who was a witness at the trial.
