Dawson man out of jail

April 14, 2004

Terrell County-- A Dawson man sentenced to 11-and-a-half years for ignoring court orders to clean up his messy yard is out of jail.

50-year-old Willie McCray was found guilty of contempt last week by violating his 142 month probation by not removing numerous appliances from his yard he was repairing.

His supporters called the sentence excessive and demanded his release.

Municipal Court Judge Henry Williams released McCray based on health concerns.

McCray suffers from diabetes and had to be taken from the Terrell County Jail to a hospital.

McCray will go back before Judge Williams Monday night for a modified sentence.
