The arraignment for criminal charges against Leonarda Duenez Aguilar, the property owner of a converted barn in Sylmar that caught fire, killing an entire family, was postponed this week.

Scheduling conflicts among lawyers on both sides prevented the proceedings from taking place, as was announced, this Tuesday July 1st. A spokesperson from the City of Los Angeles Attorney's Office, who is handling the case, said there is no date set for the arraignment.

Duenez Aguilar faces charges of failure to install smoke detectors, illegal use of land, illegal construction, lack of electrical permits, lack of plumbing permits, and failure to comply with orders from the Department of Building and Safety. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Duenez Aguilar is the owner of a barn-like structure on the 13800 block of Eldrige Avenue in Sylmar, part of which was being legally used as living quarters for the Estrada family (father Uriel, mother Maria, and their children Isabel, 12 and Alejandro 8), who died on January 13 when the structure caught fire.

The City Attorney's office alleges that the living space in the structure was altered by the property owner to illegally add a bathroom as well as an unpermitted kitchen. Inspectors also reported that there were no smoke alarms on the ceilings or walls in any of the rooms that were used for sleeping or in any areas giving access to those rooms. Inspectors also stated that unapproved electrical wiring had been installed in a large building illegally constructed at the location.

Brian Weinberger, the property owner's lawyer, told the San Fernando Valley Sun/El Sol soon after the tragedy that he had been advised through his client, as well as the person in charge of maintaining the property, whom he did not identify, that “there were indeed two brand new smoke alarms provided for that area of living quarters” where the Estradas lived.

Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop.
