THE DISTRICT

Builder Pleads Guilty Dixon A. Oladele, a builder in Northeast Washington, pleaded guilty yesterday in D.C. Superior Court to 22 counts of illegal construction, violating a stop-work order and making a false statement to obtain a building permit.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, the D.C. attorney general's office dismissed most of the 296 charges against Oladele, each a criminal violation of the city's housing codes. Each misdemeanor charge, which related to a single-family house at 245 56th St., represented one day that construction continued illegally. Oladele built a house without the proper permits.

Oladele could face $5,100 in fines and 280 days in jail when he is sentenced Sept. 14. Assistant Attorney General Nicholas Majett called Oladele's plea "a victory" for the city's Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, which is waging an aggressive campaign against illegal building in the city.
