Hilda Brucker went down to the municipal court in October 2016 after receiving a phone call. She hadn’t received a formal summons or known of any wrongdoing; instead, she thought she needed to clear a ticket.
But when she arrived at the Doraville, Georgia, courthouse, Brucker said she was placed before a judge and prosecutor who accused her of violating city code — because of cracks in her driveway.
She was fined $100 and sentenced to six months criminal probation, even though this was the first time she was made aware her driveway was considered a problem.
Eventually, the charges were dropped, but Brucker said Doraville “went too far” in going after her for the driveway’s appearance.
Small town corruption is rampant in this country. It’s time we all start paying attention to what is happening locally before go after it federally!
