A teen who smashed a traffic cone through a windshield of a city police car during the unrest last year in Baltimore will spend six months in jail.

Allen Bullock, 19, was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty last month to damaging property during the unrest over the death of Freddie Gray, local media outlets reported.

Under the plea deal, Bullock was sentenced to 12 months in jail, with all but six months suspended. He must also serve five years probation, complete 400 hours of community service and get his GED.

The $500,000 bail set for Bullock last year was criticized as being too high and unfair. The six Baltimore officers charged in Gray's death were released on bonds of between $250,000 and $350,000.
