A Lilburn man is charged with unlawfully dumping human waste from a septic pumper truck on county property.

Aric Preston Craft, 26, faces a charge of unlawful dumping from a Jan. 11 grand jury indictment. According to the indictment, Craft is accused of dumping “egregious litter for commercial purposes without legal authority and without a duly issued permit on a public road and into the Hall County sewage system.”

The Hall County Marshal’s Office said Craft allegedly dumped human waste on the “roadway, right of way and Hall County sewage system manhole.”

“Mr. Craft discharged (a) large amount of sewage from septic pumper truck while an employee of (Rooter) Express, a plumbing company,” according to a statement from the marshal’s office.

Attorney Clinton Teston said he and his client are seeking more information through discovery before commenting to The Times.

The marshal’s office said the charge is a felony. Upon conviction as a felony, the maximum fine is $25,000 and maximum prison time is five years.

The Georgia code adds that “any term of imprisonment exceeding two years shall be probated conditioned upon payment of a fine imposed.”
