"A thousand-dollar fine or a 180 days in jail. I have one parking ticket," Georgianna Reid told KSHB.
Kansas City, Missouri, officials told Georgianna Reed she has 10 days to remove the sand from her yard or appeal. Otherwise they could fine her $1,000 — and she could spend half a year in jail.
If that happened, Reid's life could end behind bars. Her doctors say she only has about six months to live. Her friends fear she'd die in jail.
