PARMA, OH — 88-year old Rudy Klicek was sentenced to 180 days in jail for refusing to clean up his yard.
City officials say they’ve been trying to work Klicek for nearly a year to bring his property up to code.
It’s littered with abandoned vehicles, broken appliances and other junk.
His wife admits Klicek is a hoarder but says he doesn’t belong in jail.
A judge sentenced Klicek last Friday after he failed to appear in court and ignored the order to clean up his yard.
