    NY - For minor crimes, NYers sentenced to Sandy relief

    http://centurylink.net/news/read.php...SNWU00L4_UNEWS

    NEW YORK (AP) New Yorkers who got into minor trouble in Manhattan have been sentenced to Sandy.

    Last week, 70 people who were given community service after pleading guilty to infractions like public drunkenness, open container violations or speeding, were shuttled to Coney Island in Brooklyn to help with cleanup efforts after the devastating storm.

    They raked leaves, shoveled mud and picked up garbage and debris. More than 1,000 bags of trash were collected in 732 hours of work. Swaths of Sandy-wrecked filthy streets and sidewalks were cleaned..............

    Savur said the district attorney's office is considering more Sandy-related community service efforts. There is no shortage of people who could be ordered to Sandy: About 80,000 of the 100,000 annual cases in Manhattan are lower level misdemeanors and violations that often wind up with some type of community service............more at link.........

    Great idea!
