City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo today filed criminal charges against a billboard company and building owners over an illegal sign next to the 10 Freeway. Keep in mind, this is two days after the city held a press conference under the same exact sign saying they were revving up to fight if these don't come down.

World Wide Rush, building owner National Investment Company and eight people--either partial building owners or those doing business under the company's name--were named in court documents for illegally erecting a six-story Tropicana Juice supergraphic sign at 10801 National Blvd. after a city moratorium passed last month.

23 criminal counts in all; if found guilty, they could face up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 for each charge.
