Woman fined for repeated littering in 1 yard
LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) - July 19, 2011 (WPVI) -- A Kansas woman ticketed for tossing her empty tea bottles in the same yard nearly every day for two years insists there was no malice involved.
The Lawrence Journal-World reported that Carole Green, of rural Bonner Springs, entered a guilty plea Friday to four counts of misdemeanor littering.
Green was ticketed after a man who lives about two miles east of her photographed her throwing empty tea bottles into the yard of his rural Leavenworth County home.
Green says the man's yard just happened to be where she finished her tea each time. She also told the judge that if she had to do it over again, "of course, I wouldn't do it."
Judge Gunnar Sundby imposed fines of $1,200 plus court costs - the minimum amount for first-time offenders.
