My name is*****...

My name is***** Mr father owns some properties in Sylmar. He was fined for violations regarding the use of one property. He thinks he's entitled, via the 6th Amendment of the Constitution; to a jury trial.

The property in question is in California.. Sylmar is a suburb of Los Angeles. My father thinks the city of Los Angeles is in violation of the 6th Amendment and thinks there are likely many other property owners in the same situation.

My father would like to explain to a Judge the specifics of his particular situation regarding being fined for allowing a business to be operated on one of his properties. He thinks, before paying the fine; he should be able to have a Jury of his piers tell him he owes the money.

Do you happen to know the citation #'s at all? Also, was it LA County that provided these citations?
