New Orleans man pleads guilty to illegal dumping

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An Orleans Parish man has pleaded guilty to violating Louisiana's Environmental Quality Act by illegally disposing of waste tires in New Orleans.

Authorities say 54-year-old Michele A. Morris, of New Orleans, entered the plea Wednesday and was sentenced to 60 days in jail, with credit for time served.

The Department of Environmental Quality says Morris illegally dumped solid waste in New Orleans in January 2013. His actions were uncovered during the course of an investigation into illegal dumping in the city.
