Citizens Against Ugly Street Spam
I have just (today) discovered this forum.Late last spring my wife and I were charged with petty larceny and trespass for removing signs advertising "cage fighting" from Virginia roadsides. http://brleader.com/?p=8687Until last year our county had a volunteer program to pick up illegal roadside spam. In 2 years these volunteers picked up 52,000 signs within Loudoun County. Nonetheless, during the first meeting of our local Board of Supervisors the new board killed the program- http://www.leesburgtoday.com/news/article_b34681d2-880a-11e1-91c9-001a4bcf887a.html http://www.leesburgtoday.com/news/article_ba93426c-41f7-11e1-91ea-001871e3ce6c.htmlI've been picking up illegal roadside spam for decades and my Great Grandmother was involved with the adoption of the sign ordinance- one of the first in the country.If anyone has any information or advice which would help us with our case I would greatly appreciate it. We have already spent 5Ksome additional links- http://realloudoun.com/2012/06/07/plowman-sides-with-the-crooks/http://realloudoun.com/2012/06/08/its-nice-to-have-friends-in-office/For the record, we didn't go on private property, nor did we remove any signs from in front of the complainants' business- this case is about revenge
Hi:Welcome to CAUSS. I think there was another case where a person was arrested in VA. Please do a search on the VA forum (or all forums) for "arrest". You may find relevant information.DenverShark
