NYC Court Handing Out Sandy Cleanup Sentences

In times of tragedy, people come together.  That was seen all over the Northeast in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.  Now, nearly two months after the storm hit, more New Yorkers are coming together to help clean up, but not by choice.

FOX News Radio’s Dave Anthony has more on a curious court sentence:

Audio clip:

Right after Sandy devastated New York and New Jersey, damaging thousands of homes, people helped each other.

(Resident) “We all need to work together.  We all need to be nice.”

A sentiment playing out in court in Manhattan, where minor offenders were sentenced to help do storm cleanup.  The DA’s office had 70 people who pleaded guilty to things like public drunkenness or speeding remove more than a thousand bag fulls of debris and garbage and mud, raking the streets and sidewalks in hard-hit Coney Island in Brooklyn last week, and more community service sentences like it may be in the works.
