After ignoring repeated orders to make repairs, the owners of a Studio City motel were charged Friday with 24 health and safety violations by City Atty. Jim Hahn.
Stanley S. Wu, 58, and Helen C. Wu, 49, will be arraigned on criminal slum charges Aug. 14 in Los Angeles Municipal Court, Hahn said.
The owners, both residents of Studio City, did not comply with the city's Slum Housing Task Force orders to bring the 18-unit Topper Motel on Ventura Boulevard to code, said Deputy City Atty. Lawrence P.V. Punter, a prosecutor in Hahn's Housing Enforcement Unit.
The task force inspected the motel several times between March 20 and June 2. The code violations included damaged and deteriorated walls, ceilings, floors, floor coverings, doors and windows and broken toilets and faucets.
