'Phonehenge' Builder Sentenced To Jail because He Failed to Pay for its Demolition

latimes.com
An Acton man convicted of building-code violations who failed to repay thousands of dollars he owed Los Angeles County for demolishing the elaborate structure he dubbed "Phonehenge West" was sentenced this week to almost 18 months in jail.

The jailing of Alan Kimble Fahey marked the end of a more than 20-year saga that pitted the retired phone technician against county code enforcement officials and led him in and out of court for the last five years.

Prosecutors argued that Fahey showed a deliberate disregard for authority and had no one but himself to blame for his fate. But Fahey's supporters insisted that he was unfairly punished for what they described as a "victimless crime."

Hmmm...steal $1.6 billion from customers and get off

no problem - build on your own property, at your own expense and go to prison. Too bad his name is Fahey instead of Corzine.

This story reminds me...

Of wanting to build a storage shed in Florida's post hurricane Andrew...
It had to be planned and engineered! But yet, I could go out and buy a metal shed from Lowe's and no permit, plans needed!
Well I built one! It is far stronger than those flimsy metal boxes that they want $500 bucks for!
No permit, no engineer and no fuss!

Did they take his land

yet? This looks like part of the land grab to me. In my little county, they took a farm for 2 pot plants. We are not talking some huge, dealer's grow-op. TWO plants. That is not about getting drugs off the street, that is about seizing land.

God says you have the right to defend yourself. The Holy Bible gives a lot of examples of that, including when facing overwhelming odds.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

This Sucks

The pigs in charge are evil and don't want any kind of alternative building going on. This isn't about safety etc. It's about protecting conventional building in order to keep a monopoly on housing. research "The Phoenix Commotion" and "The Cob Cottage Company" These are awesome. There need to be more people like this guy and they need to be heard and held up for!

deliberate disregard

"Prosecutors argued that Fahey showed a deliberate disregard for authority..."

I would argue that the authorities show a deliberate disregard for individuality. =(

Were the Watts Towers not referenced @ his trial?
