LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Southern California man charged with spray-painting anti-vaccination graffiti on public buildings and freeway onramps has pleaded not guilty to vandalism.

City News Service says Marlon Brian Andrino entered the pleas Friday to three felony charges. If convicted, he could face nearly 4 ½ years in jail.

Prosecutors say the 28-year-old Ontario man tagged West Hollywood City Hall, the Beverly Hills Visitors Center and freeway onramps on July 1.

The messages allegedly warned: “4 Every Kid Afflicted A Public Figure Will Die SB277.”

SB277 is a bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last month. It removes the personal belief exemption from vaccination requirements for school-age children.
