A Pittsfield man who prosecutors say participated in a one-night rampage of vandalism, car theft, and attempted arson that caused nearly $600,000 in damage has been sentenced to up to seven years in prison. Steven Gratton was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to 31 charges in connection with what prosecutors called a night of ‘‘mayhem and destruction’’ in February 2012. Prosecutors said Gratton, 25, and two friends broke into businesses, stole a number of vehicles, spilled two drums of diesel fuel, and tried to set fire to two businesses. The estimated cost of their crimes was $572,000, with $100,000 needed for the diesel cleanup.
