Landlord Baltimore landlord gets prison for lead-paint violations

Cephus Murrell, 69, of Catonsville sat as U.S. District Court imposed the sentence, of one year and a day which included six months' home detention after release from prison.  Murrell pleaded guilty in federal court in July to three misdemeanor violations of the Toxic Substances Control Act. He had been charged with failing to notify his tenants of lead-paint hazards in their units, for conducting an abatement in one unit while children were present, potentially exposing them to lead dust, and for falsely certifying that abatement work was being done with proper supervision. All after twenty lead-paint violation notices by environmental agencies.

I hope everyone’s paper work is up to date and they have been following the LAW !
