Jail time looms over Mohamed Hadid’s head during the next three years….

On Thursday, Judge Eric Harmon sentenced Mohamed Hadid to pay $3,000 in fines, $14,191 restitution to the City of Los Angeles, one year to fulfill 200 hours of community service, and three years probation to bring his 901 Strada Vecchia structure into compliance with building codes and to complete it—or face 180 days in jail.  

There will be a follow-up hearing on September 18th in order for the Court to hear updates with regard to Mr. Hadid hiring new builders and geologists to present plans in order to bring the building into compliance and stabilizing the hillside beneath the structure.  The Court will decide then whether or not Mohamed Hadid is to secure a bond that will cover the cost to demolish the Strada Vecchia structure should Mr. Hadid try to walk away from the development project without proper compliance.
