§ 180.55 Rent gouging in the third degree.
A person is guilty of rent gouging in the third degree when, in
connection with the leasing, rental or use of real property, he
solicits, accepts or agrees to accept from a person some consideration
of value, less than two hundred fifty dollars, in addition to lawful
rental and other lawful charges, upon an agreement or understanding that
the furnishing of such consideration will increase the possibility that
any person may obtain or renew the lease, rental or use of such
property, or that a failure to furnish it will decrease the possibility
that any person may obtain or renew the same.
Rent gouging in the third degree is a class B misdemeanor.
