The folks at Richmond Slumlord Watch are reporting that this was a very bad day for Oliver Lawrence:
Oliver Lawrence was in General District court for over 5 hours today. Without going into all of the procedural details (show-causes on 140 previously suspended sentences, etc. etc.), the ultimate result was a sentence that boils down to 70 days and over $176,000.00 in fines. This will most likely be appealed at circuit court, but all in all, a bad day for slumlords in Richmond.
