TT: The West Scranton woman accused of cursing at her commode said she plans to enter a not guilty plea in court today.
Dawn Herb, of 924 Luzerne St., is facing a disorderly conduct charge that was issued after she started swearing at her backed-up toilet near an open window last week. If convicted, she could face a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail and a $300 fine.
She will receive legal assistance from the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, which is expected to represent her.
Who hasn't let loose with a few choice words when something has gone wrong around the house? When I was growing up my old man would go through the roof when the furnace or water heater, etc. would act up creating a scene akin to the one in the Christmas Story. I think I was 10 or 11 before someone explained to me that fuck wasn't something you did when you hit your hand with a hammer.
You would think that this would be dropped after all the publicity making the cops look silly but Scranton Director of Public Safety Ray Hayes said he stands by the officer’s decision. “Upon further review, many types of these incidents are not as cut and dry as they originally appear,” he said. “Freedom of speech is not an unfettered right.”
