A Sandy Springs, GA sanitation worker has been ordered to spend his weekends in jail after doing his job too early. Kevin McGill has 14 weekends to spend in jail after starting his job at 5 a.m., which is a recurring problem according to Chief prosecutor Bill Riley.
“Fines don’t seem to work,” Riley said. “The only thing that seems to stop the activity is actually going to jail.”
Riley says 911 lights up when trash haulers come before 7 a.m.
McGill, who didn’t have an attorney with him when he was sentenced, is serving his time on the weekend. His new attorney wonders why he’s being punished.
“Give him a warning,” attorney Kimberly Bandoh said. “I mean he’s the employee. He’s not the employer. Sentencing him to jail is doing what?”
First of all, who are these people calling in the a.m. complaining? Maybe they should spend some time in an area where they either have to take their trash to the dump on their own, like I do. Or spend a hot muggy summer in NYC where trash is picked up whenever the sanitation works feel like doing it.
