Littering Case Over Dollar Dropped

CLEVELAND, (UPI) — Cleveland prosecutors have dropped their case against a man who was ticketed for littering when he dropped a dollar he was attempting to give a disabled person.

Chief City Prosecutor Jonathan Cudnik dropped the case Thursday against John Davis in Judge Angela Stoke’s courtroom, saying the city does not consider money to be trash, WJW, Cleveland, reported Thursday.

Davis said he was relieved by the decision, as the $344 littering ticket was approaching $500 with court costs factored in and he would lose additional money from missing work and attorney’s fees.

Davis said his attorney, Marcus Sidoti, will donate all fees to the Different Needz Foundation charity.
