Heh. You're never too old for old-fashioned punishment duty.
SAGINAW, Michigan-A 73-year-old man has been ordered to clean a veterans memorial with a toothbrush for taking part in a scam to solicit scrap yards for metal, saying it was to be used to build a memorial for soldiers in the Iraq war.
Philip Kolinski and another man were arrested after scrap yards reported the men soliciting metal donations for a sculpture. Detectives said the men sold their metal and kept the money.
"You certainly should be ashamed," Saginaw County District Court Judge A.T. Frank said as he sentenced Kolinski to clean the veterans memorial in front of Governmental Center on Aug. 7.
"You will have a toothbrush and a bucket with a placard saying you stole from veterans," Frank said. And after that, there are plenty of toilets in jail for these idiots to clean. And I mean spotless!
