Man Pleads Guilty to Illegal Dumping of Lead Waste in Randolph County

JULY 29, 2004 - Posted at 11:15 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Two men are set for trial next month on charges they illegally dumped lead paint near Pocahontas, and a third man has entered a guilty plea to a single charge.

47-year-old Cecil Zimmerman pleaded guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court to one count of disposing of hazardous waste without a permit.  Zimmerman was a supervisor for Kerrville Painting Company of Texas. 

The company was under contract to the state of Arkansas to sandblast and paint bridges in Lawrence and Randolph counties in 1999 and 2000.

To be tried August 16 are company owner Nicholas Muskie and Kevin Foster, a former road inspector for the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department.
