NICHOLS - It appears that none of the four individuals involved in the dumping of items into an unapproved landfill will go to prison.
However, all four entered guilty pleas in Bullitt Circuit Court.
Robert and John Alberhasky, as well as property owners Terry and Debbie Cain, admitted their roles in the 2007 dumping case.
In addition to the actions taken in Bullitt County, the Cains are also looking at possible state fines.
According to testimony given during the guilty plea, the Alberhasky family owned the trucking company that was dumping items on the Cain property.
Robert Alberhaskey, 76, and John Alberhasky, 40, would enter pleas to complicity to disposal at a non-permitted site.
Both would receive a one-year sentence which would be diverted for five years. Both would also pay a $5,000 fine.
Debbie Cain, 56, and Terry Cain, 59, would plea guilty to operating a non-permitted waste disposal site.
They would receive a one-year sentence that would be probated.
Attorney Anne McAfee said the couple is still facing administrative proceedings with the state of Kentucky. She said there could be fines and requirements to clean up the property.
She argued that Debbie Cain never worked and had no income. On top of that, McAfee said Terry Cain was charged on a methamphetamine allegation, has cancer and is in the Bullitt County Jail.
McAfee said her clients should not be subject to a fine, especially since they might be responsible for cleaning up the property.
Bullitt County solid waste coordinator Larry Hatfield said he was pleased to see the 2007 come to a close. From his perspective, it would be nice to see someone be responsible for cleaning up the property.
Bullitt Circuit Judge Rodney Burress set final sentencing for March 15.
