NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Twin sisters accused of vandalizing Newport’s famous Cliff Walk have pleaded not guilty.

Jocelyn Senecal and Jenna Senecal, both 22, are facing misdemeanor graffiti charges. They were released after entering their pleas Wednesday.

The pair turned themselves in after photos circulated online showing them with spray paint cans at the Cliff Walk last month.

Jocelyn Senecal told WJAR-TV in an email that her actions were wrong but that doesn’t justify the harassment that followed.

The sisters, both from East Providence, are scheduled to return to court Jan. 17.

The 3 ½-mile walk is designated as a national recreation trail and is one of Rhode Island’s most popular tourist attractions. It draws hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
