Sam Vazirani

A Franklin County judge has sentenced a local landlord to one year in prison for violating his probation by failing to sell his properties.

A Franklin County judge yesterday delayed the hearing of landlord Sam Vazirani while he decides whether Vazirani defied his probation by failing to sell his rental properties.

Bond is set at 10-thousand dollars for the Columbus landlord jailed last week for failing to follow a judge's order to sell his rental properties.

A Franklinton landlord convicted in the aftermath of a fatal fire at one of his properties a year ago has been arrested again for violating probation.
