Three landlords in Brooklyn are facing jail time if they don't make repairs to their dilapidated buildings.

The two buildings on Linden Boulevard in Wingate have 500 housing code violations, including rodent infestation, exposed electrical wiring and leaking water pipes.

Lewis Alleyne and Dwight and Gerald King were taken into housing court last week and ordered to make repairs.

Tenants are skeptical things will improve.
