FOR RELEASE: MONDAY, DEC. 13, 1999
MICHIGAN MAN SENT TO JAIL FOR DUMPING HAZARDOUS WASTE
William M. Jones of Highland Park, Mich., who was convicted of violating 
the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
in August, was sentenced on Nov. 30, to serve 16 months in prison, to pay 
$30,000 in restitution to EPA for cleanup
costs and to serve two years of supervised release. The sentencing took 
place in the U.S. District Court for the
Eastern District of Michigan in Detroit. In the spring of 1997, Jones and 
others disposed of several thousand
containers of hazardous waste inks from the Morgan Artcraft Screen Print 
Co. The inks were abandoned at an unused
warehouse in Detroit. Some of the abandoned inks were flammable and others 
contained lead. Exposure to sufficient
quantities of lead can cause neurological disorders in people. The EPA 
Superfund program paid $30,000 to remove
and properly dispose of the abandoned inks. The case was investigated by 
EPA's Criminal Investigation Division and
the FBI with the assistance of EPA's National Enforcement Investigations 
Center and was prosecuted by the U.S.
Department of Justice.
