Fourteen months and about 70,000 pennies later, James Sanders has finally paid off a pair of citations he received last summer in Clinton County.
After more than a year of unsuccessfully fighting the charges filed against him on Aug. 10, 2012, for speeding and refusing to identify himself to police, Sanders made the trip from his Mulberry home to the Clinton County Courthouse to pay his $702 fine.
But the most difficult part of paying the fine wasn’t coping with the impact it might have on his budget. It was figuring out how to carry it from the car to the courthouse.
