Developer To Do Time: Federal Judge sends Idaho man to the slammer for bulldozing creek

After seeing our Supreme Court justices recently pave the way for developers to turn waterways into strip malls (see Bob Marshall's 6-21 post), it's nice to see that at least some federal judges are not so accommodating. U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill has sentenced an eastern Idaho developer to 18 months in prison and $9,000 in fines for draining wetlands and bulldozing a stream bed, which incidentally polluted a spawning bed for Yellowstone cutthroat trout.
