Indian Man loses wife and daughter

Savani, killed in car accident, courtesy, Toronto Star

I cannot imagine the pain of Mr. Guruge of Markham, Ontario, who lost his wife and daughter in a car accident. See story here...

Trust me, I have been through that pain of hell when my mother was killed in a Saint Catherine's sky way accident when I was only 14 years old and her blood sprayed all over me, as if she were a sacrifice. The way to mourn is a lot of crying and remembering the good times. Eventually, time heals the wounds.

If he ever wants to reach out to me, he can call me at 718-541-7415, and I will share in his pain and suffering.

former Judge charged with bribery, gratuities and sex act.

Would you believe a man of 70 years, and especially a judge, can be guilty of such crimes....?
 According to the feds, "Federal prosecutors today charged a former administrative law judge for the Social Security Administration for engaging in a sex act with, and other activities related to a Social Security beneficiary, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance, SSA-Office of Inspector General Special Agent in Charge Margaret Jackson and FBI Special Agent in Charge Roger Stanton.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office filed a three-count information in U.S. District Court charging PAUL STRIBLING CONGER JR., 73, of Akron, Ala., with obstructing justice, accepting a gratuity for an official act of a public official and stealing government property. The U.S. Attorney’s Office also filed a plea agreement with Conger in which he acknowledges the charges and agrees he will plead guilty to them. Conger is scheduled for arraignment Sept. 15.
Conger served as an administrative law judge for the Social Security Administration from May 1999 to April 2014, presiding over hearings to determine whether someone who applied for disability or other SSA benefits qualified to receive them. Conger’s judicial chambers were in the federal courthouse in Tuscaloosa.
According to the charges and Congers’ plea agreement:
In July 2013, Conger presided over the claims hearing of a woman identified in court documents as T.M., who subsequently was approved for SSI benefits, including future monthly payments and retroactive benefits. In November 2013, T.M. discussed Conger with a mutual acquaintance of theirs and was given information that led her to approach the judge about receiving her retroactive SSI benefits in a lump sum of about $10,000.
On Nov. 19, 2013, T.M. met Conger in his chambers at the Tuscaloosa federal courthouse, seeking the lump sum benefits payment. There, the two engaged in sexual activity. Over ensuing weeks, they remained in contact through phone calls and text messages.
Conger is charged with illegal receipt of a gratuity for his conduct with T.M.
He is charged with theft of government property for using T.M.’s records from the SSA database to learn more about her. The information included medical records and identifiers such as her Social Security number.
Conger is charged with obstruction for attempting to obtain T.M.’s cell phone and destroy it after learning that he was the subject of a workplace complaint and an OIG investigation. According to the court records, Conger paid someone, “Individual B,” to obtain the phone and provided the individual with material from T.M.’s SSA file to help that person find her.
As further alleged, Conger falsely told federal agents that he never had any physical or sexual contact with a claimant, including T.M., even after being notified that he was the target of a federal grand jury investigation.
The maximum penalty for obstruction is 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The maximum penalty for the gratuity charge is two years in prison and a $250,000 fine, and the maximum penalty for the theft of government property charge is one year in prison and a $100,000 fine."

I hope this old man only gets probation. He is too old to sit in jail. If he does get jail time, this is what he can expect...

Fraud Schemer gets 10 years jail sentence

According to the feds, "U.S. District Judge Susan C. Bucklew today sentenced Christopher A. Maguire (34, formerly of Orlando) to 10 years in federal prison for wire fraud and illegal monetary transactions. As part of his sentence, the Court also entered a money judgment in the amount of $4,938,574.40, the proceeds of the charged criminal conduct. Maguire pleaded guilty on May 18, 2016.
According to court documents, from at least May 2012 through April 2014, Maguire operated a scheme where he, and promoters employed by him, solicited victim-investors to send him funds via electronic wire or check. Maguire and his promoters targeted individuals and groups of victim-investors for funding using companies operated by Maguire including M Development LLC, IQ Options LLC, and Vivid Funding LLC.
The victims’ funds were never actually invested into the opportunity presented to them.  Maguire used some of the funds on personal expenditures, as well as payments to his promoters. Maguire also made numerous payments back to certain victims, often enticing these victims to reinvest the proceeds of the transaction, sometimes triggering additional investment of funds by the victims or their associates.
Through this scheme, Maguire was responsible for losses of over $4.9 million to over 150 victim-investors. The majority of the victims were located in central Florida and in northern Ohio."

Credit Card Skimmer gets 65 months jail

According to the feds,"A Studio City man was sentenced today to 65 months in federal prison for possessing more than 1,400 credit card profiles that had been stolen from consumers who used gas pumps equipped with illegal “skimmers.”
            Koren Robert Kechedzian, 25, was further ordered by United States District Judge Philip S. Guttierez to pay restitution of $114,135 to victim financial institutions that suffered losses when the stolen credit card numbers were used for fraudulent purchases.
            At the conclusion of a one-week trial in March, Kechedzian was convicted of two counts of credit card fraud (specifically, two counts of possession of 15 or more counterfeit access devices) and two counts of aggravated identity theft.
            The federal jury found that Kechedzian possessed two USB flash drives – which are commonly called “thumb drives” – that contained stolen credit card information. The portable drives were found at Kechedzian’s residence when federal authorities executed a search warrant in June 2013. At that time, investigators also recovered an illegal skimming device designed to be installed in gas station pumps to steal credit card data.
            Bank records examined by investigators established that the stolen credit cards numbers on the USB flash drives came from Chevron gas stations in Palmdale and Moorpark, and testimony at trial showed that the data on portable drives was consistent with the output from a credit card skimming device.
            “Stolen credit card information found in this defendant’s residence was used to obtain products at gas stations and other retail outlets,” said United States Attorney Eileen M. Decker. “The investigation also linked the defendant to senior members of Armenian Power, a gang that has been involved in credit card schemes. This type of fraud harms millions of Americans and can be used to fund other illegal activity, which is why law enforcement is committed to uncovering these schemes and prosecuting the perpetrators.”
            The investigation in this case was conducted by special agents with IRS Criminal Investigation, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the United States Secret Service. The investigation into Kechedzian stemmed from the discovery in 2013 of two counterfeit credit cards that were embossed with Kechedzian’s name.
            “Today’s sentencing sends a clear message to the defendant and others thinking about taking such action that credit card fraud will be taken seriously and the punishment will involve a long prison sentence,” stated IRS Criminal Investigation’s Acting Special Agent in Charge Anthony J. Orlando. “As credit card fraud becomes more prevalent, IRS Criminal Investigation will continue to use our forensic skills to protect consumers from fraud artists committed to taking the identities of innocent victims.”
            Special agents testifying at trial said that credit card fraud rings install skimming devices in gas station pumps and obtain credit card numbers from the devices and transmit the stolen data with Bluetooth technology. Customers who use these compromised gas pumps are the unwitting victims of the credit card fraud."
What was this guy thinking that he can keep stealing and never get caught?

Music makes the world go round and round

We know that there is nothing like music that unites the world. Would you believe that music was the first creation? Well, according to my findings, it is. How do I know that? Based on the Hebrew letters of the Bible. The first word in the Torah, Bereishis, can be rearranged to read, ba'as shir, or music has arrived. Hence we see that music is the basis of the universe....

Indian Couple guilty in health care fraud

"Two Rockaway, New Jersey, residents who owned a mobile diagnostic testing company were each sentenced today to over six years in prison for receiving more than $4.8 million from Medicare and private insurance companies for diagnostic testing and reports that were never interpreted by a licensed physician, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.
Kirtish N. Patel, 54, and Nita K. Patel, 53, were sentenced to 100 and 78 months in prison, respectively. Both defendants previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge William H. Walls to separate informations charging them each with one count of health care fraud. Judge Walls imposed the sentences today in in Newark federal court.
According to the documents filed in the case and statements made in Court:
From 2006 through June 2014, Kirtish and Nita Patel owned and operated Biosound Medical Services Inc. and Heart Solutions (collectively, “Biosound”), of Parsippany, New Jersey, which were mobile diagnostic companies and approved Medicare providers. The companies provided mobile diagnostic testing, including ultrasounds, echocardiograms and nerve conduction studies that were used to diagnose heart defects, blood clots, abdominal aortic aneurysms and other serious medical conditions. 
Biosound technicians would travel to the office of a primary care physician in the New York and New Jersey area to conduct diagnostic testing. Biosound was responsible for sending the tests to a “reading physician” – an appropriate specialist who would interpret the results. After the reading physician prepared a report, Biosound was responsible for providing it to the referring physician. Biosound was paid millions of dollars by Medicare and other payors for the diagnostic testing, the reading physician’s interpretation of the results and the reports.
Kirtish Patel admitted to, from October 2008 through June 2014, fraudulently interpreting and writing diagnostic reports produced by Biosound despite having no medical license and knowing that the reports would be used by the referring physicians to make important patient treatment decisions. Nita Patel admitted assisting her husband in forging physician signatures on the fraudulently produced reports to make them appear legitimate. Kirtish and Nita Patel Patel also admitted falsely representing to Medicare that the neurological testing performed by Biosound was being supervised by a licensed neurologist.
More than 10,000 diagnostic reports generated by Biosound between October 2008 and June 2014 were never actually reviewed or interpreted by a physician. Kirtish and Nita Patel were paid more than $4.8 million by Medicare and private insurance companies for the fraudulent reports, which they used for personal expenses, including multiple residences and luxury vehicles.
Judge Walls also ordered Kirtish and Nita Patel to serve three years of supervised release, forfeit $4,803,875.40, and pay restitution of $4,803,875.40.
Pursuant to a civil judgment entered in July 2016, U.S. District Judge Stanley R. Chesler ordered Nita and Kirtish Patel, Biosound Medical Services and Heart solutions to pay the United States $5 million in damages and $2.75 million in civil monetary penalties.
U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Scott J. Lampert, and the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Timothy Gallagher in Newark, with the investigation.
The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Danielle Alfonzo Walsman of the U.S. Attorney’s Health Care and Government Fraud Unit in Newark."

American Indian Doctor Nets two years Jail Sentence

According to the feds, "A federal judge sentenced an Oak Brook doctor to two years in prison for illegally receiving benefits in exchange for referring elderly patients to Sacred Heart Hospital on Chicago’s West Side.
DR. VENKATESWARA R. “V.R.” KUCHIPUDI was convicted in March on one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States, and nine counts of illegally soliciting or receiving benefits in return for referrals of patients covered under a federal health care program.
U.S. District Judge Matthew F. Kennelly imposed the sentence Friday in federal court in Chicago.
“Medical professionals of every kind must know that patient need should be the only factor influencing decisions concerning patient care,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Joel M. Hammerman argued in the government’s sentencing memorandum.  “Patients are not commodities to be bartered or monetized.”
Dr. Kuchipudi, 69, was one of ten defendants convicted in the multi-year investigation of the now-shuttered hospital at 3240 W. Franklin Blvd. in Chicago.  From 2001 through April 2013, Sacred Heart executives conspired to pay kickbacks and bribes to physicians to induce them to refer patients for services that would be reimbursed by Medicare and Medicaid.  The scheme earned Sacred Heart millions of dollars in reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid.
The prior convictions include EDWARD NOVAK, the hospital’s owner and chief executive officer; ROY PAYAWAL, the chief financial officer; CLARENCE NAGELVOORT and ANTHONY J. PUORRO, chief operating officers; and four other physicians.  Sacred Heart closed in 2013 in the aftermath of a federal law enforcement search of the hospital and the arrests of principal executives and Dr. Kuchipudi.
The investigation was carried out by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, which is part of the Health Care Fraud Prevention & Enforcement Action Team, a joint initiative between the U.S. Justice Department and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to prevent fraud and to enforce anti-fraud laws around the country.  Dozens of defendants have been charged in numerous fraud cases since the strike force began operating in Chicago in 2011.
Evidence at Dr. Kuchipudi’s five-week trial revealed that he was one of Sacred Heart’s most prolific sources of patient referrals.  In exchange for his referrals, Sacred Heart provided Dr. Kuchipudi with free labor in the form of a physician, physician assistants and nurse practitioners.  The free labor was provided not only inside Sacred Heart but also in Chicago-area nursing homes where many of Dr. Kuchipudi’s patients resided.  Sacred Heart allowed Dr. Kuchipudi to bill Medicare and Medicaid for the services of the physician assistants and nurse practitioners as if he employed them himself."
What were they thinking, that they would never get caught? Obviously they thought so till the feds came knocking at their door at 6:00 AM.

Senior Citizen ripped people off

  According to the feds, "GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN — Sarah Frances Bolhuis, 70, of Antrim County, Michigan, was charged with two felonies in connection with a scheme to defraud others of their money, U.S. Attorney Patrick A. Miles, Jr. announced today. Federal investigators believe that more than 50 individuals in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Florida may have fallen victim to the fraud and collectively lost more than $5 million in the scheme.
          The felony charges filed today in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids allege that Sarah Bolhuis devised and executed a scheme to defraud to obtain money from others between 2006 and 2015. As part of the scheme, the government alleges that Bolhuis, operating under the names American Financial (AMFI), TriLogic, and Prestige Benefits, falsely represented to prospective clients that she was engaged in the business of providing various financial services and investment loan opportunities. In truth, as alleged in the Felony Information, Bolhuis did not use client money as promised; instead, she made payments to a business partner, made return-of-principal and other payments to clients, paid "finder fees" to individuals who successfully recruited new clients, and paid various personal living and entertainment expenses. Bolhuis also is alleged to have laundered proceeds of the fraud by depositing into a bank account money she obtained from one victim and withdrawing $27,500 from the same account to make a payment to another victim.
          Bolhuis has signed a plea agreement in which she waived her right to indictment by a Grand Jury and agreed to enter guilty pleas to the wire fraud and money laundering charges. In the plea agreement filed with the Court today, Bolhuis has admitted making the following false and fraudulent misrepresentations and promises concerning the financial services she claimed to provide:
  • She falsely claimed that her business provided short term funding to adult foster care homes and to individuals seeking debt refinancing;
  • She falsely claimed she would invest certain client money in overseas accounts;
  • She falsely represented that certain funds would be invested in silver coins; 
  • She falsely promised that she was making payments on a client’s home mortgage (including a second mortgage taken out by the client to fund investments with Bolhuis) using interest and/or fees earned from the investments; and
  • She promised to pay some of her clients between 3% and 5% interest per month on the principal monies provided to her by her clients. Some clients were promised even higher interest rates.
          Additionally, Bolhuis admitted in the plea agreement that the total amount of money obtained in the scheme was approximately $7.5 million. Although some of those funds were paid to participants during the course of the scheme, more than $5 million in fraudulent proceeds must be repaid to the victims."

In my opinion, she is facing serious time based on the amount she conned out of people. What can she expect if she ends up in federal prison?

Former Social Security Employee nets 9 months imprisonment

Accordingto the feds, "Miguel Gutierrez, 42, of Bernville, Pennsylvania, was sentenced today to nine months in prison, and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $7,122.86 and a fine of $4,000, pursuant to his prior guilty plea to three counts of wire fraud, announced United States Attorney Zane David Memeger. The defendant, a former Claims Representative in Social Security Administration’s Reading field office, used his access to Social Security’s computer systems at his job to redirect Social Security benefits payable to others, to a bank account in his own name. Defendant Gutierrez redirected several benefit payments before Social Security’s internal control systems detected his theft. The Honorable Jeffrey Schmehl ordered the defendant to repay the Social Security Administration for all stolen funds, and pay a $4,000 fine in addition to that restitution. In imposing the prison sentence, the court noted that the defendant’s former position as a government employee, entrusted with access to Social Security’s computer system, required a term of imprisonment."

For such little money, he destroyed his career. What can he expect in federal prison?

Former Mayor of Lawrence charge with theft

Jeremy Farmer
According to the feds,"TOPEKA, KAN. - A former mayor of Lawrence was charged in federal court Thursday with embezzling thousands of dollars from a food bank in Douglas County, Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.
Jeremy Farmer, 32, Lawrence, Kan., was charged with one count of embezzlement. According to court documents, the crimes took place while Farmer was the executive director of Just Food, a food bank in Douglas County. Just Food serves more than 40 partner agencies with frozen meat and fresh produce as well as bread and food donated from community drives. The organization and its partners play a key role in fighting hunger in Douglas County.
According to court documents, prosecutors allege that from 2013 until Farmer resigned from Just Food and from his position as mayor of Lawrence in August 2015 he used his access to Just Foods’ bank accounts and accounting systems to steal more than $5,000 from the organization."

Will he face prison time? Maybe. $5000 is not a lot of money but since he held power, he may be held accountable to a higher standard. Plus he stole from a food bank. Not the wisest thief.

Tracy Brown gets 80 months imprisonment

According to feds.." The owner of a New Orleans company that defrauded Medicare of more than $3.3 million was sentenced today to 80 months in prison for directing the scheme.
Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite of the Eastern District of Louisiana, Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey S. Sallet of the FBI’s New Orleans Field Office and Special Agent in Charge Mike Fields of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General’s (HHS-OIG) Dallas Regional Office made the announcement.
Tracy Richardson Brown, 46, of New Orleans, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Stanwood R. Duval Jr. of the Eastern District of Louisiana, who also ordered Brown to pay $2,004,391.63 in restitution.
On April 30, 2016, Brown, who owned and operated medical equipment supply company Psalms 23 DME LLC (Psalms), was convicted on 18 counts of health care fraud, conspiracy and related charges.  Evidence introduced at the five-day trial showed that Brown paid patient recruiters for the names and billing information of Medicare beneficiaries in and around New Orleans.  The evidence that was presented also showed that Brown used this information to cause Psalms to bill Medicare for power wheelchairs, accessories and various knee, elbow and back braces supposedly provided to these beneficiaries.  However, according to the evidence presented at trial, the vast majority of these patients did not need, and often did not receive or even want, this equipment.  The evidence at trial demonstrated that Brown caused Psalms to bill Medicare for more than $3.3 million in claims, a vast percentage of which were fraudulent, and Medicare paid Psalms approximately $2 million on these claims.  At her sentencing, Judge Duval stated that the sentence was based, in part, upon Brown’s use of elderly people to commit a “reprehensible crime.”
It is not a good idea to steal from the federal piggy bank because it bites back like a wolf.

Customs officer steals from the cookie jar...

According to the feds..."LOS ANGELES – A longtime U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer has been arrested on federal charges that allege that he stole mail from the International Mail Facility (IMF) in Torrance and arranged to have an accomplice deposit checks obtained from the stolen mail.
            Carlos Canjura, 54, of Van Nuys, was arrested yesterday without incident by special agents with the FBI. The arrest came after Canjura, who has been a CBP officer since 2008, was named in an eight-count indictment that was returned by a federal grand jury on August 4.
            At an arraignment yesterday afternoon in United States District Court, Canjura pleaded not guilty to the charges in the indictment and was released on his own recognizance.
            According to the indictment, Canjura was a CBP Officer assigned to the IMF, where his duties included examining mail and parcels coming into the United States for contraband, counterfeit goods, and possible fraudulent financial checks or credit cards.  The IMF is operated by the United States Postal Service and serves as a location where international mail is processed by CBP officers and other personnel to ensure compliance with federal law before being delivered to addresses in the United States.
            "The public should be able to use the mail without fear that officials charged with safeguarding the system are not abusing it for their own benefit," said United States Attorney Eileen M. Decker. "Mr. Canjura not only abused his position as a federal officer by stealing international mail, he also sought to use the stolen mail in an elaborate scheme to defraud banks and line his own pockets. In so doing, he violated the public trust he swore to uphold."  
            According to the indictment, while working at the IMF, Canjura stole mail that contained traveler’s checks and third-party checks. Canjura allegedly provided the stolen checks to other people, who altered the checks and deposited them into bank accounts at Bank of America.
            The indictment specifically alleges that Canjura stole four checks with a cumulative value of more than $15,000.
            “Americans must be able to trust officials handling their mail which conveys highly valuable information, to include our identification and financial data,” said Deirdre Fike, the Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office. “The FBI is committed to holding accountable those, like Mr. Canjura, who abuse their positions of trust and threaten our security for personal gain.”
            The indictment against Canjura charges him with four counts of bank fraud and four counts of possession of stolen mail. The case has been assigned to United States District Judge Beverly Reid O’Connell, who has ordered the parties to appear on August 15 for a trial setting conference."

This story makes no sense.  Officer Canjura destroys his life for $15,000..? The story needs more details.
Why did this cop go off the track? Was he financially distressed?

Anyways, everything comes out over time. If he gets prison time and he may only get probation for such a small amount, this is what he can expect in federal prison...

Mortgage Modification Fraudster takes plea

According to the feds, "A Brea man pleaded guilty this morning to federal charges related to his role as the owner and operator of a multi-million dollar fraudulent mortgage modification scheme that posed as a successful law firm to defraud struggling homeowners. 
            Bryan D’Antonio, 50, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud for his role as owner and operator of Rodis Law Group (RLG) and America’s Law Group (ALG).
            D’Antonio pleaded guilty before United States District Judge David O. Carter, who is scheduled to sentence the defendant on January 30, 2017.
            “D’Antonio preyed on vulnerable victims – struggling homeowners,” said United States Attorney Eileen M. Decker. “Pretending to offer legal assistance to their victims, D’Antonio and his cohorts actually offered nothing but false hopes and empty promises.  Now, he will be held accountable in federal court for the damage he has caused so many victims.”
            D’Antonio admitted that, between October 2008 and June 2009, he participated in a scheme that induced homeowners to pay as much as $5,500 for the services of RLG and its successor entity, ALG. RLG and ALG advertised on radio stations across the country and urging struggling homeowners to call a toll-free number. The companies purportedly consisted of “a team of experienced attorneys” who were “highly skilled in negotiating lower interest rates and even lowering your principal balance.”
            In fact, RLG and ALG were telemarketing operations that never had teams of experienced attorneys. During much of the scheme, one man – co-defendant Ronald Rodis – was the only attorney at RLG.
            In a plea agreement filed in federal court, D’Antonio admitted that the RLG and ALG schemes fraudulently obtained approximately $9 million from more than 1,500 victims.
            “At the height of the mortgage crisis, this defendant, a convicted felon who was prohibited from any business engaged in telemarketing, created two fake law firms that promised struggling homeowners assistance saving their homes and modifying their mortgages,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Benjamin C. Mizer, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division. “Despite the many promises, these were telemarketing sales operations that took homeowners’ money and provided no meaningful assistance.”
            D’Antonio was previously convicted of mail and wire fraud and sentenced to four years in federal prison for his participation in a medical billing scheme. He was also subject to a permanent injunction prohibiting him from having any involvement with any business that engaged in telemarketing or misrepresented the services it would provide.  In conjunction with his guilty plea today, D’Antonio admitted that he started RLG while he was still on supervised release from his prior conviction. In violation of D’Antonio’s permanent injunction, RLG and ALG sold their services through an extensive telemarketing operation and employees routinely misrepresented the services RLG and ALG would provide. The telemarketers did not disclose to homeowners that RLG and ALG were owned and operated by D’Antonio, who was prohibited from engaging in telemarketing
            RLG and ALG telemarketers working for D’Antonio made numerous misrepresentations regarding the companies’ ability to negotiate loan modifications from the homeowners’ mortgage lenders. For example, the telemarketers stated that RLG and ALG had been in business for 11 years when in fact the company had only opened in October 2008. They falsely stated that RLG and ALG routinely obtained positive results for homeowners, including lower monthly payments, reductions in principal balance and lower interest rates. In fact, positive results were rarely achieved for any RLG or ALG clients. Telemarketers also falsely reiterated that homeowners would have a team of attorneys and real estate professionals assigned to their case. "
I don't understand this person.Did he not get it the first tine he spent in prison for four years. They are going to hammer this guy a second time around, especially since he took advantage of vulnerable people.
Yes, I know the psychology of crime which is that once you do something illegal a few times it becomes legal to you in your brain. It should have not even come to this since he should have had self control
  This is what he can expect in federal prison...

Blagojevich appeal to have time reduced denied

Blago in Black, good ole days....

Blago in white, as a prison attire...courtesy splash news...

I just read in the NY Daily News that former Senator Blagojevich's request have his fourteen year sentence reduced was denied, eventhough some of the charges were thrown out.

The lawyer mentioned his exemplary behavior in jail, his constant contact with his wife and daughter. However, the judge did not care. Blago has to do the time. Jail is most important. Imagine, your family means nothing to the government, especially if you are a criminal. Moreover, in the federal system, there are no conjugal visits. This is a truly spartan life.

What is also most revealing is that the famous jet black hair of Blago has now turned snow white since dying is not allowed in prison. He is scheduled to be released on 2024.

There is a glimmer of hope. I read that he was chummy chummy with Donald Trump. If that is the case, maybe Trump will pardon or commute his sentence. That is wishful thinking for now.

How I beat my nyc parking ticket

We were eating in a restaurant and I see meter maids running around so I went to my car to make sure time receipt did not expire. To my shock and disbelief, this guy is writing me a ticket. I said, sir, I bought a ticket look. To my further shock, the ticket flipped over and the time did not show. It must have flipped when I closed the door and the wind blew it over.

The guy said, dont worry, just plead not guilty and send in your parking receipt. We did just that and a letter came back from NYC Dept of Finance showing 0 balance.

The Top of the Mexican Pyramid under attack

Carlos Slim, in center, under attack from the Mexican Government
I just read an interesting article about Carlos Slim of Lebanese descent,  whose business interests are under attack in Mexico. You see a good luck how businessmen operate, including cozying up with President's of countries so they could get things their way. See attached story here....I just wonder if he is Jewish..... .

Perhaps he did not pay off or cozy up to the right people in the Mexican government. Of course, it is obvious you will not get the entire story from the New York Times since he is biggest shareholder and they don't want to shoot themselves in the foot by throwing dirt on Mr. Slim.

Listen, I understand the feeling of being attacked. I was one of the biggest immigration lawyers in the country and the government dismantled my operation and threw me in jail like I was the biggest criminal in the world. That was my grave sin of helping people and defrauding the government.

Husband of rock victim kills himself

Sharon Budd and the late Randy Budd

According to NY Post, Randy Budd, husband of Sharon Budd, took his life this past week. See article in NY Post.

Mrs. Budd was the victim of a vicious rock attack and she became grossly disfigured and crippled. For some unknown reason, her husband, Randy, could not take it anymore and took his own life.

Now we have a small taste of the hell that Jews go through form the vicious rock attacks of their "Arab" neighbors. Why cannot we all live in peace? Are we not all one family?

My prayers go out to this family.

We all go through tragedy and each and every one deals with it differently. Like the Torah says, in every household there was death. Tragedy is unavoidable. We just need to learn to cope,. Here is my tragedy....

Todd Howe spills the beans....

Todd Howe, Governor Andrew Cuomo, as pictured NY Post

As reported in NY Post, former lobbyist and confidante of Governor Andrew is spilling the beans or cooperating with Federal Authorities. See story here.....

I went through same hell when I was in Federal Prison, sitting at MCC and then giving proffers with US Attorney's office. When I got sentenced, the government said it was of no use. The lesson is that if you don't get a cooperation agreement in writing or a 5k1 letter, you are wasting your time.

Former Steel Company President gets 72 months imprisonment

According to the feds, "Kennon W. Whaley, 51, from Auburn, was sentenced to 72 months in federal prison on August 3, 2016.  In May, Whaley was convicted by a federal jury of two counts of concealment of bankruptcy assets while his company, Southeastern Stud & Components, was in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. 
       The evidence at trial showed that during the bankruptcy process Whaley redirected a $260,000 insurance payment intended for the company in 2010 to pay off a personal gambling debt.  In January of 2010, Mr. Whaley traveled to the Wynn Las Vegas Casino where he incurred a $100,000 gambling debt during a trip of just four days.  The evidence also showed that Wynn Las Vegas began to put pressure on Whaley to pay the debt beginning in February of 2010.  Casino records from Wynn Las Vegas, and the bank records of the account where the insurance proceeds were deposited, showed that Whaley used the company’s insurance money pay off his gambling debt and to pay himself over $30,000 in cash. None of these transactions were ever disclosed by Whaley to the Bankruptcy Court as required.
       The casino records also showed that once his debt was paid off in October of 2010, Whaley made a return trip to Wynn Las Vegas during which he spent over $20,000 at the casino and sent a limousine to pick up his wife at the airport.  At that time, Southeastern Stud was still in bankruptcy and approximately 70% of its employees had lost their jobs.
       Evidence presented by the U.S. Attorney’s Office at sentencing demonstrated that during the investigation of Whaley’s crimes by the FBI, he obstructed justice by asking his former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to falsify an affidavit to be submitted to the FBI.  The sentencing judge also found that Whaley had directed this same employee to falsify documents that were submitted to the bankruptcy court in order to conceal the diverted insurance proceeds used for his gambling debts. " 
I met other gamblers in Federal Prison. It is like an addiction and it may take you down.  Hopefully, he will get treatment and overcome his issues.

Carjackers get lengthy sentences....

Don't mess with the feds or Texas... "Two Dallas residents who pleaded guilty to federal felony offenses stemming from their armed carjacking of two victims in Dallas in January 2015 have been sentenced to lengthy prison sentences, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.
Monica Renee Metcalf, 24, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to serve a total of 176 months in federal prison.  She pleaded guilty in November 2015 to one count of carjacking and aiding and abetting and one count of using, carrying, and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and aiding and abetting. 
Her then-boyfriend, co-defendant Felipe Pinon, 28, who pleaded guilty to the same offenses, was sentenced by Judge Lindsay in April 2016 to serve 360 months in federal prison.
According to documents filed in the case, on January 18, 2015, Metcalf approached an individual (Victim 1) at a gas station near the 3300 block of Webb Chapel Extension in Dallas and asked Victim 1 for a ride.  Metcalf directed Victim 1 to drive her to an apartment complex across the street, and when they arrived there, Pinon approached the vehicle and spoke with Metcalf.  Metcalf then asked Victim 1 to give Pinon a ride as well, but Victim 1 refused.  Pinon then brandished a handgun and pointed it at Victim 1 and demanded that Victim 1 give him everything he had.  Pinon and Metcalf ordered Victim 1 out of the vehicle and drove away in it.
The next day, Metcalf approached and briefly spoke with an individual (Victim 2) who was seated in his vehicle near the 300 block of S. Seagoville Road in Dallas.  As Metcalf walked away from Victim 2, Pinon approached Victim 2.  Pinon brandished a handgun and ordered Victim 2 to get out of the vehicle.  Then, Pinon, Metcalf, and another individual drove away in Victim 2’s vehicle."
