ACORN Activist and Baltimore slumlord Louis Beverly was found not guilty of assault in the second degree and destruction of property. You will remember Mr. Beverly from a previous post, and the news coverage of his publicity stunt with former Baltimore homeowner Donna Hanks.
Encouraged by ACORN, Louis Beverly assisted Ms. Hanks in breaking into her former home, which was in foreclosure. As a result, Ms. Hanks received probation before judgement for her part in the poorly planned caper. Mr. Beverly’s legal woes are not over yet, however — his Harford Road property is currently the subject of yet another foreclosure proceeding.
