The Columbus woman who pleaded guilty to charges of vandalizing a Planned Parenthood clinic on East Main Street last March has been sentenced to three years' probation.

71-year-old Rachel Jackson must also pay 41 hundred dollars restitution for splashing paint and writing 'baby killers' on the building. Clinic officials say the incident and ongoing protests have heightened fear for patients and employees. City Council earlier this year approved a law requiring a buffer zone around abortion clinics.
