Harvey Updyke Pleads Guilty, Gets Six Months in Jail

Harvey Updyke has pleaded guilty to poisoning Auburn's famous Toomer's Corner oak trees, reaching a deal with prosecution that will see him spend six months in jail and five years on supervised probation. Updyke pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal damage of an agricultural facility, a Class-C felony in Alabama. Lee County District Attorney Robbie Treese said in a statement announcing the plea deal that “We have a significant number of violent felonies awaiting trial in Lee County and I could not in good conscience justify financing a three-week trial merely to arrive at no better a resolution.”
