A judge sentenced an Alabama man on Thursday for littering after placing a flower box at the foot of his fiancé’s grave.

The man, Winston Hagans, had placed the flower boxes at a Hannah Ford’s grave several times after her death in January 2021, a month after the two got engaged, according to WTVM. Judge Jim McLaughlin found Hagans guilty and ordered him to pay a $50 fine and $250 court costs.

Winston was first charged thanks to Tom Ford, Hannah Ford’s father, who repeatedly removed Hagans’ flower boxes.

Ford owns his daughter’s grave at Memorial Park Cemetery in Auburn, Alabama and, according to Hagans, never approved of their relationship.

Hagans reportedly admitted in court that he asked the city for permission to place the flower boxes at the grave, and was told that it was fine as long as the family approved.

The family didn’t approve, however, and Ford eventually had him arrested for littering.

Hagan faces no jail time as long as he agrees to stop placing the flower boxes.
