MAYFIELD, Ky. — Nine Amish men were sentenced to up to 10 days in jail Monday for declining to pay fines for refusing to display a bright orange-red safety triangle on the back of their horse-drawn buggies.
Graves District Court Judge Deborah Hawkins Crooks imposed the sentences after the Kentucky Court of Appeals in June denied the defendants' appeal of their misdemeanor convictions.
