PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY WOMAN CHARGED
WITH UNLAWFUL DUMPING AND STORING OF TIRES

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that charges were filed in the District Court of Maryland for Prince George’s County against Betty Jean Neal, 36, of the 15000 block of Bondsmill Road, Laurel, for the unlawful transport and disposal of scrap tires in Prince George’s County.

Neal was charged in two separate five-count criminal informations with the unlawful transport and disposal of scrap tires in Hyattsville and Laurel and with littering for commercial purposes. The offenses are alleged to have occurred in April and May of 2002.

The filing of a charging document is not evidence of guilt. Neal is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. No trial date has been set.

The maximum penalty for each count of littering and unlawful disposal of scrap tires is five years incarceration and/or a $25,000 fine. The maximum penalty for unlawfully transporting scrap tires is $10,000.
