An apartment building owner has been sentenced to live in one of his cockroach-infested apartment units as part of his sentence for violating 27 housing code rules.

Municipal Court Judge Dale Chase sentenced Nick Papadelis, 47, of Broadview Heights to live in one of his units for six months.City housing officials said the 76-unit complex had been cited during each of the last several years for about 100 violations, including cockroach infestation, bad plumbing, cracks in walls and general disrepair.

Officials said Papadelis has been cited for similar violations in property he owns in Cleveland, Lakewood and Canton.

Chase also ordered Papadelis to use the $5,400 the judge suspended in fines to make repairs to the apartment complex.
