Fla. man sentenced for building illegal docks
Question of the Day
MIAMI (AP) - A South Florida man has been sentenced to home detention plus $225,000 in fines and payments for building illegal docks and piers on navigable waterways.
U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore imposed the sentence last week on 70-year-old Richard Bunnell of Miami. Bunnell had previously pleaded guilty to violating the federal Rivers and Harbors Act by building six illegal structures on Miami-area waterways.
Bunnell must pay a $175,000 criminal fine plus a $50,000 payment to the South Florida National Parks Trust for management, restoration and research efforts. The home detention sentence is for six months, with electronic monitoring.
A plea agreement also requires Bunnell to modify the structures so they comply with federal law and pay for any environmental damage.
