A Lenoir City woman had to serve jail time for having a messy yard. Over the summer, the city sent her a citation, claiming her yard was not being properly maintained. Karen Holloway, who has been cited before by code enforcers while her husband was overseas in the military, admits that her yard is not the cleanest, but she says that with her husband going to school and working full time, her job, and only having one car as well as having two children still at home they’ve been trying their best but everything can’t be kept perfectly up to par, and so the yard work has been deflected at times. Holloway was handed a five-day jail sentence by Judge Terry Vann during a hearing a couple weeks ago. Karen said “Why would you put me in hail with child molesters, and people who’ve done real crimes because I haven’t maintained my yard?” She claims to have never had her rights read to her nor told she could have a lawyer present. Holloway appealed to Judge Vann, who reduced her sentence to six hours. She offered to do five days of community service, but was denied. Holloway reported to the jail at 5 pm on Tuesday October 14th. The judge has set a following hearing for November to check on the progress of getting the yard up to par, and suggested he might add more jail time if the city isn’t satisfied with the clean-up.
