Loved one is accused of Housing Code violation of Akron City Code 150.10(A)(4) and as accusers claim it is a 3rd degree misdemeanor. This concerns private property with no renting situations involved.

Your city lawmakers made it that way. A violation of 150.10 is a Misdemeanor 3 carrying a potential sentence of 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. That section also requires a mandatory minimum fine. Worse yet, the offense is a strict liability crime, meaning that you are deemed guilty regardless of your intent. Google Akron Municipal Ordinance 150.99 for the actual penalties.
