Posted: Updated:
MACON, GA (WALB) -

Robert Lewis, 42, of Atlanta, was sentenced in Macon Federal Court on Thursday,  to serve 10 months in federal prison for unlawful storage of hazardous waste. 

Lewis entered a guilty plea to the charges on September 26, 2013.  In 2009, forty 55-gallon drums and sixteen 275-gallon totes of this hazardous waste material were found to be improperly stored at a self-storage facility in Macon, Georgia.  

Lewis had improperly stored hazardous waste, including highly flammable solvents and highly toxic cyanide wastes, in Rex, and at his home in Albany.
