Septic Tank Co. Pleads Guilty
Alisha Bowen dba All About Septic & Plumbing pleaded guilty in Fayette Criminal Court on 9-19-11 for operating illegally without a State License.
Bowen’s company located in Rockdale County had previously been operating in Fayette County by lying to property owners about the conditions of their septic tanks charging them for work not done, then suing if property owners refused to pay.
Bowen won her Civil Suit in Judge Carla Wong McMillian’s Fayette Court last April when the Judge refused to allow evidence presented by a Tyrone property owner that Bowens had violated Fayette Septic Codes.
Judge Wong McMillian said she couldn’t allow the evidence because “it might confuse the jurors”, and threatened the property owner with Contempt of Court, if he allowed Richard Fehr, Director of Fayette Health Dept to testify that he had charged Bowen with criminal violations.
Without this crucial evidence and other erroneous court rulings, justice was not serve and the septic company got away with cheating the property owner.
Four months later, Alisha Bowen Pleaded guilty to the Code Violations and was sentenced to 365 days in jail, suspended upon payment of a fine.
As a result All About Septic & Plumbing set up a Fayette Website offering septic service and is still operating in Fayette County.
Judge Wong McMillian, a Tyrone resident has never been elected by voters, having been appointed in 2010 by the Governor’s office to fill a vacancy in Fayette State Court. Wong comes up for election in July 2012 and is opposed by Steven Ott, an experience City Judge in PTC.
