Well, well! The sentencing of the Las Vegas HOA scammers has begun. Readers of this blog know that that I predicted the vast majority of these dirtballs will spend no more than eighteen months in prison. That’s what most white collar crime leads to. Steal a million or a hundred million and our judicial system doesn’t have the guts to hand down sentences these people actually deserve. You can get more time behind bars abusing an animal than for ruining the lives of thousands of humans.
This federal judge has already told the thousands of victims of the Vegas swindling machine that they’ll probably never see their money again because it’s all gone. It seems to me these 41 crooks should stay in prison until each and every victimized homeowner gets ALL his money back. It’ll never happen.
Steve Wark is the first to be sentenced. He’s a well-known political strategist in Nevada. Incredibly, he only got 366 days in prison. Counting his time off for good behavior he’ll spend far less time behind bars than the 18 months I predicted.
Other sentences today:
15 months in prison.
21 months in prison.
3 months of home confinement.
For all the thousands of people who lost their homes and life savings to this mob: How do you feel now?
Oh, and BTW, if you think I’m crazy about animal abuse being more serious than ruining thousands of human lives, try this link:
