Face-off over converted garage could land woman, 83, in jail

The story of an 83 year old California woman Ageda Camargo is unbelievable and truly scary for anyone who cares about property rights. She is from La Quinta, CA and has owned her house for years, before La Quinta was even a city. When she bought her house, it had a third bedroom that was originally a garage. Now they are threatening to put her in jail if she doesn’t change the room back to a garage.
Of course, the city is not offering to refund Camargo the additional taxes she’s paid all these years for the additional living space. Thankfully, I haven’t heard any stories like this from New Mexico, but one never knows what government bureaucrats will do next.
