Tennessee Woman Jail: Yard Work, or Lack of It, Puts Her Behind Bars

By    |   Wednesday, 15 Oct 2014 06:59 PM

A Tennessee woman was put in jail over yard work after her yard became overgrown and unkempt earlier this summer.

Karen Holloway was cited by code enforcers and has already served her six-hour sentence, The Associated Press reports.

Holloway told WVLT 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 on yard work 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.
