Ridiculous

"

A Tennessee woman who fell behind on her yard work was cited by code enforcers and served a stint in jail due to her overgrown property…

…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.

This is ridiculous!

You can fine the individual (if it is a violation of the township codes). The 'authorities' can have the yard tended to by paid workers and bill it to the individual in addition to the fine. But jail time? Some sense of proportion, please!
