Basile man pleads guilty

BATON ROUGE — A Basile man pleaded guilty to state criminal environmental charges in 13th Judicial District Court in Ville Platte, state Department of Environmental Quality officials said Thursday.

TLeroy Hardy, 70, pleaded guilty to one felony count of disposing of a substance that could endanger human life and health. He was sentenced to five years’ supervised probation and was fined $1,000. Hardy was also ordered to clean up the property and pay $960 to DEQ for the cost of the investigation.

On March 8, Basile police responded to a tire-burning complaint at Hardy’s residence, at 2348 Guillory St., near the Basile Headstart Child Care Center

They forwarded their findings to DEQ, leading to Hardy’s arrest.

Hardy was previously cited in a compliance order issued by DEQ in March 2012 for similar violations that occurred at his residence twice in 2011.
