LENOIR CITY, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee woman who fell behind on her yard work was cited by code enforcers and has served a stint in jail over her overgrown yard.
Karen Holloway tells WVLT (http://bit.ly/1w6Nzkr) that the issue started in the summer, when the city sent a citation. She admits she didn’t properly maintain her yard in Lenoir City in East Tennessee and says it had overgrown trees and bushes, but she says she didn’t deserve jail time. She says she fell behind because of personal family issues.
The station reports that Judge Terry Vann heard the case last week and handed down a five-day jail sentence but amended it Tuesday to six hours.
Holloway turned herself in Tuesday at the jail.
WVLT says neither Vann nor police Chief Don White could be reached for comment.
