A) Imprison them.
B) Fine them.
C) Get them to do community service on the site.
D) Get them to write a research paper on the site, so they have to look into it's history, religious and societal significance, and then explain what they have learnt about it.
Kudos to the manager of Serpent Mound, and the local Assistant Prosecutor, who think that A is unlikely, B won't change any attitudes, so want C and D to happen.
A 19-year-old man, accused of taking a joy ride over an ancient Native American earthwork at Serpent Mound, has confessed to the crime and agreed to pay $3,790 in restitution for damages, according to Adams County authorities and park officials.
Adams County Assistant Prosecutor Ken Armstrong says he's seriously considering seeking a healthy dose of community service – and even a research paper on the site's rich history.
"He has been cooperative, so we're working with him," Armstrong said, "But I don't think he appreciates the significance of the site, the gravity of what he's done."
Prison time – if he's found guilty – is a long shot, said Armstrong of the prosecutor's office, who is unsure whether he'll ask that Dargavell do any time.
"Someone else, a family member likely, is going to pay the restitution up front," Armstrong said, "but I want (Dargavell) to have a significant investment in this, that would mostly be community service."
Sometimes, when things like this happen, the party that was vandalized never wants to see the vandal again, Armstrong said.
Not Serpent Mound manager Goodwin.
"In fact, they were already coming up with a list of things they want him to do," Armstrong said.
