Is $1-million bail for alleged supergraphic violator justice or overkill? Share your view
There are many in L.A. who think there are far too many billboards and supergraphics dotting the landscape.
But when one businessman was accused of illegally erecting a supergraphic on Hollywood Boulevard, the city attorney's office didn't mess around.
Officials jailed Kayvan Setareh, 49, of Pacific Palisades on $1-million bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon.
Setareh is accused of three misdemeanor city code violations, two of them related to the city sign law --
"The days of lax and inconsistent enforcement of billboard and outdoor advertising laws in this city are over," Trutanich said in a statement.
What do you think about Trutanich's action? Is he finally cracking down? Or it this overkill? Share your view.
