    Officials say two 20-year-old Marines from Camp Pendleton arrested after a night of shooting out the windows of stores and vehicles around Orange County, including a car with a woman inside, have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor vandalism charges.

    Joseph Nahale of Fremont and Jesse Ivie of Gresham, Ore. were sentenced Tuesday to community service and three years' probation City News Service reports.

    Several other more serious vandalism charges were dropped.

    On Oct. 21, authorities from Newport Beach to San Clemente received reports of 17 vehicles and eight storefronts with shattered windows.

    A 25-year-old woman was resting in her car at about midnight Saturday at a Dana Point grocery store when two of her windows were shot out. She was not hurt.

    A total of 23 victims were affected by the vandalism attacks throughout San Clemente, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and Dana Point, officials said.
