The old WUPY Lynn tower?

Hi Joe: Yes, that's the same guy. He was a leader in the anti-rent control 
movement and had an odd variety of defense witnesses at his trial including 
Jerry Williams. Was sentenced to 1 /12 years, but I can't find if he served 
it all. U.S. Atty Mark Wolfe was the prosecutor. There were two other 
defendants, but I can't find their sentences. I do know Wolfe had a tough 
time with his sentencing deliberations because on of the co-defendants was a 
Holocaust survivor.

All in all a very strange story, even for radio.
