Harassment: does it carry a prison term now (1997 Reform)?

Posted by Scott Bowman on July 29, 1997 at 15:16:23:

I have had no luck finding out (officialy) if Building Owner harassment of
a tenant carries possible imprisonment.
The Rent Regulation Reform Act of 1997 states that a fine of $1000-$5000
can be imposed on a Building Owner (or superintendent collecting rent for
the owner) if they harass a tenant with intent to cause the tenant to
vacate the housing accomodation. I had heard rumors of possible
imprisonment with that but can't seem to confirm it officially.
Can someone give me an 'official confirmation' amswering this dilemma
(that the above CAN or CANNOT be imprisoned as per such and such law)?
