    It’s the landlords fault. Shut the apartment down. This girl will go to Clearbrook for a month, get drug court, skip out on her prison sentence and be right back at it soon enough.

    Well they do both have crime on Scott Street. But only one of those Scott Streets has someone named Juleisy, sounds like a stripper’s name.
