WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A former Hugh MacRae Park groundskeeper pleaded guilty today to trading court ordered community service hours for cash.
The judge suspended a jail sentence for Richard Randolph Huddleston, 53, giving him 12 months probation with an order to complete 200 hours of community service.
He is not allowed to do the community service hours at any New Hanover County parks.
Huddleston was arrested last summer after a sting operation where investigators say he took $80 from an undercover officer to sign off on eight hours of community service.
