Ex-port commissioner sentenced for damaging memorial

POULSBO, Wash. (AP) — A former Port of Poulsbo commissioner arrested for vandalizing a memorial to a Native American man killed by police has reached a deal with prosecutors to avoid a felony conviction. The Kitsap Sun reports Mark DeSalvo agreed last week to follow for a year the conditions set forth in Kitsap County District Court. At that point his second-degree malicious mischief charge will be dismissed. DeSalvowas found July 11 by Poulsbo police, apparently intoxicated, vandalizing the memorial at the Poulsbo waterfront. DeSalvo’s attorney, Tim Kelly, said DeSalvo attended alcohol-related inpatient treatment, was continuing with outpatient treatment and is remorseful.
