Cold Hearted SOB Award

Can you say 'cold hearted bastard?' Well, here is a local story that defines that term:

A Menominee County landlord faces up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine for evicting the wife of a U.S. serviceman. It happened back in December of 2004, but it's just reached the federal court system.

Randall McLeod, Sr. pled guilty to a charge of unlawful eviction of a service member's dependents.

Federal prosecutors say the wife went into labor in late November of 2004 and, as a result, did not make her rent payment on time. The next month, authorities say, McLeod removed the family's belongings from the mobile home and changed the locks.

The soldier was away from home, training at the time.

McLeod will be sentenced on August 28. He'll also be required to pay restitution to the family.

When he goes to jail, wonder how he would feel if his wife got tossed out into the street?
