Inmate Turns Over Cash, New Leaf
A Maine inmate working the outdoor chain gang in Dover-Foxcroft recently found far more than leaves and trash mixed in roadside debris. He found a moneybag containing cash and checks. Rather than pocket the goods — as he had done years before to land his present work detail — he gave the bag to a jail supervisor. In handing over the loot he helped an area church finalize a bank deposit originally destined for deposit in December 2007. While not exactly a plot line from Stephen King’s Shawshank Redemption, we’ll take the happy ending and note it's not every day a man gets to turn over a new leaf while raking over a pile of leaves!
