Social Media FAIL! CA Woman Defaces Rocks at 7 National Parks & her own Instagram Posts get her Indicted & Convicted ~ Call Michael A. Haber, Esq. @ 1-888-SHARK-8-1

Meet 23 y/o Casey Nocket.  That's her below....

Casey is the unequivocal douche bag of the week.  

Why is Casey the unequivocal douche bag of the week?  Because over a 26-day period in 2014 Casey intentionally and for her own douche baggerous reasons damaged formations at seven (7) different national parks by drawing or painting on them with acrylic paint and markers, signing her works with her social media handle "Creepytings" and then posting them online.  Among the parks she targeted were Death Valley and Yosemite National Parks in California, Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, Zion National Park in Utah and Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.

Her own posts were her demise, as after proudly posting her work on Instagram Casey provoked outrage on social media and was arrested.  Per U.S. Atty. Phillip A. Talbert:  "The defendant's defacement of multiple rock formations showed a lack of respect for the law and our shared national treasures.  The National Park Service has worked hard to restore the rock formations to their natural state, completing clean-up efforts in five of the seven national parks.  They expect to complete clean-up efforts at Death Valley and at Crater Lake national parks as weather permits."  But some of the vandalism has proved difficult to remove, as sandblasting and chemical stripping techniques used to remove paint can cause irreplaceable damage to natural features.
And at two parks, Crater Lake and Death Valley, the graffiti is yet to be fully removed nearly two years after the fact.  Below is Casey's "creation" (douche) at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.

And below is her defacement of Yosemite National Park...

Other examples follow...

On June 21st, 2016 Casey appeared in federal court in Fresno, California where she pleaded guilty to seven (7) counts of defacing national parks, and she has now been formally banned from entering any of the National Parks in the United States (which, geographically, compromises more than 20% of the land in the US).  The amount of money that she will be ordered to pay remains an open question for her Judge.

Casey deleted her Instagram account but not before various media outlets got hold of it, publishing exchanges in which she shamelessly defended her work.  In one post from Casey defiantly wrote: "It's art, not vandalism. I am an artist."

Memo to Casey Nocket:  You are not an artist, you are an a**hole.

Memo to the Folks:  Props to those of you who called out this douche baggerous self-centered a**hole out for defacing protected nature.  Per Charles Cuvelier, the Chief of the National Parks Service Law Enforcement:  "This case illustrates the important role that the public can play in identifying and sharing evidence of illegal behavior in parks.  It is clear that the public cares deeply for the special places that the National Park Service represents, and the resolution of this case sends a message to those who would consider such inappropriate behavior going forward."

Memo to the Folks Continued:   Social Media is all fun and nice until it's introduced into evidence against you in Court.  See "Haber's Rules of Social Media # 1 - 5" by clicking hereand click on the video link below to watch HaberPA's YouTube Webisode / Video FAQ on "Social Media and the Law"

Memo to the Folks Continued:  Think before you post; Once posted always posted; Don;t post anything that you would not want your mother to see / read; Cops literally troll the internet looking for folks who go to, look in, download from or upload to targeted (and usually, but not always "deviant") sites, and they also conduct internet "stings", posing as children or deviants and looking to bag anyone foolish enough to take the bait; and If it's even remotely relevant to a pending charge then prosecutors will cram your social media posts, and history (sites visited, searches made, etc) down your throat in court.

When it comes to the subject of "Cops, Courts and Constitutions" you should always have a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney who is focused on serving your interests.  While we can't stop the cops from arresting you, as your legal counsel Michael A. Haber, PA will ensure that your rights are respected from the moment that representation begins and that any abuses which may have occurred beforehand are remedied.

At Michael A. Haber, P.A. "Its all about reasonable doubt"!

Michael A. Haber, Esq. is prepared to speak with you about your case!
