Applicable California State Penal Code

Criminal fraud committed against students
□§532 False pretenses; obtaining money, labor, or property; punishment;

Every person who knowingly and designedly, by any false or fraudulent representation or pretense, defrauds any other person of money, labor, or property, whether real or personal, is punishable in the same manner and to the same extent as for larceny of the money or property so obtained.

□§484b. Diversion of funds received to obtain or pay for services, labor, materials or equipment;

Any person who receives money for the purpose of obtaining services and wrongfully diverts the funds to a use other than that for which the funds were received, shall be guilty of a public offense and shall be punishable by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or by imprisonment in the state prison, or in the county jail not exceeding one year, or by both such fine and such imprisonment.

□§476a. Checks, drafts or orders on banks; insufficient funds; intent to defraud; punishment;

Any person who willfully, with intent to defraud, makes or draws or utters or delivers any check, draft or order upon any bank or depositary, or person, or firm, or corporation, for the payment of money, knowing at the time of such making, drawing, uttering, or delivering that the maker or drawer or the corporation has not sufficient funds in, or credit with said bank or depositary for the payment of such check upon such funds then outstanding, in full upon its presentation is punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding one year, or in the state prison.

Crime against creditor
□§154 Debtor fraudulently removing, conveying, or concealing property;

Every debtor who fraudulently removes his property or effects out of this state, or fraudulently sells, conveys, assigns or conceals his property with intent to defraud, hinder or delay his creditors of their rights, claims or demands, is punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding one year, or by fine not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both; provided, however, that where the property so removed or sold or conveyed, or assigned or concealed, consists of a stock in trade or a part thereof, of a value exceeding one hundred dollars, the offense shall be a felony and punishable as such.

□§155 Defendant or judgment debtor fraudulently removing, concealing, or disposing of personal
property sought to be recovered;

Every person against whom an action is pending, or against whom a judgment has been rendered for the recovery of any personal property, who fraudulently conceals, sells, or disposes of such property, with intent to hinder, delay, or defraud the person bringing such action or recovering such judgment, or with such intent the time of the commencement of such action or the rendering of such judgment, is punishable as provide in the proceeding section.

Crime against landlord
□§537 Defrauding innkeepers, etc.;
Any person who obtains any accommodations at apartment house, without paying therefore, with intent to defraud the proprietor or manager thereof, is guilty of a public offense punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for a term not more than one year, or in the state prison.

Most of the above offenses if not all are felony offences each carrying one or more years of imprisonment if convicted. In the ASA case, if the DA is successful in achieving even one criminal conviction, that will land over 100 years in jail time for those convicted. (each one count times a number of victims/students and you get the idea.)

Don’t let the front desk clerk to tell you it’s a civil matter and turn you away. A completed crime report must be accepted and a crime reference number (CRN ) must be issued upon filing. You’re not making any request there, rather you’re making a unilateral filing action. It’s important that the crime report (pleadings in lawyer’s term) is completely prepared in accordance with the county’s criminal procedures protocol. Ask your lawyer if you already have one, if not contact SABA and ask one of their pro bono lawyers to help you prepare a crime report and have it filed at Merced county sheriff’s dept.

Now those are just few of the state penal codes that I came up with for the moment and by doing a little research on my own (I can’t afford a $250/hr lawyer for reading the same law books).

On the Federal statutes violation side, here’re some of the applicable codes under the Title 18 of USC –Crimes and Criminal Procedures that could well apply to the ASA case on the Federal offense side for the feds to pursue.

□§31 Aircraft and Motor Vehicles
□§241 Civil Rights
□§371 Conspiracy
□§641 Embezzlement and Theft
□§1001 Fraud and False Statements
□§1231 Labor
□§1341 Mail Fraud
□§1343 Wire Fraud
□§1421 Nationality and Citizenship
□§1821 Professions and Occupations
□§1951 Racketeering
□§1961 RICO
□§2071 Records and Reports

What needed to achieve a conviction requires only two things like everything else in everyone’s life, desire and strong enough intention (will) to carry it out, the rest will follow.

WHY ON EARTH IS THE AMERICAN POLICE NOT ARRESTING THESE FREAKS…PLEASE DO SOMETHING ON THAT REGARD..

zombie,
I think many of us on the blog echo your outrage saying “WHY ON EARTH IS THE AMERICAN POLICE NOT ARRESTING THESE FREAKS…PLEASE DO SOMETHING ON THAT REGARD..” believe me we’re all trying and doing just that. American police we call them county sheriff here works with their set of priorities then set at any given time and they are not so quick to jump the guns so to speak on every case that falls into their doorsteps. We’ve been trying to push the case to their higher priority as you could read in my and other’s earlier posts.

Worry not, the justice will be served one way or the other without fail. We could leave that to the US judicial system and if not to our all mighty boomerang system. Either way, it’ll get done. You watch.

Now since putting the perpetrators behind bars won’t deliver a dime to the students and their parents (or, is it 10 PAISE in your homeland?) and we are equally or even more interested in how to recover the lost student’s funds in the meantime. Dealing with this isn’t quite easy because lawyers often come into play. Some are like magicians as even a simple black and white matter can be gradually changed to gray and before you know it, it’ll be completely changed to the opposite color in the hands of a skilled lawyer.

But worry not, a half the lawyers lose their cases, so everyone has a 50% chance of success to begin with, we just have to build a strong enough case that holds water and find holes in other’s. It can be done. It’s not easy but not as hard as clearing the IIT entrance exam in your homeland, IMHO.

Stay tuned on this channel for more ASA latest.

Merced County Sheriff’s Department turned down student’s complaint against Prince & Reny, told it’s a civil matter.

Mark N. Pazin (Sheriff/Coroner) & Bill Blake (Undersheriff)

Ravi hegde,
Thank you for the reply.
So let me understand this right, you guys went to Atwater PD and Merced County Sheriff’s Department and tried to file a criminal complaint in hope to put Prince and Reny behind bars and then turned down flat by being told it’s a civil matter. Is that it?

Now the questions,
Did you have any idea how the filing needs to be done before walking into their offices? …… thought so.

Did you ask them why they think it’s not a criminal matter?…….though so.

Did you ask them how to make a criminal report then? thought so.

Did you do anything after that to find out further on how you could bring a criminal charge, or more or less giving up by doing nothing except hoping something to happen in the future? thought so too.

I could see that outcome even long before you guys got to the PD and the sheriff’s dept. with such ignorance and unprepared approach.

Allow me to make a flat statement here that asking a help to law enforcement agency in a white color crime is like throwing an anchor to a drawing man.

It’s same with banks when you need a loan how bad and how desperately need it doesn’t play in the bank’s lending decision. When you really need an umbrella in rainy days, there’re no where to be found but when in good days and you are not needing anything, they come to lend you a parasol with an eager alacrity. Get the picture?

You just have to learn how the system works and approach the task at hand in ways to get the job done, in other words to make sure there’s nothing left there standing to block your intended objective.

Not blaming on anyone but here’s what didn’t go right IMHO,

1. Walked into Atwater PD which has no jurisdiction over Castle Airport
2. Walked into the sheriff’s dept without knowing how to get a crime report filed beforehand
3. Engaged in extemporaneous verbal exchanges with the front desk clerk and gave him/her an opportunity to brush aside your case as a civil matter on the spot.
4. Erroneously and vaguely understanding the crime report as a request instead of filing
5. Not understanding a crime reporting is not a request but a unilateral filing action.
6. Not understanding a properly prepared crime report must be accepted or the clerk will face a disciplinary action.
7. Not knowing simply reporting and explaining verbally at the front desk unless you’re expert in criminal proceedings all would be brushed off aside and not taken seriously unless you’re reporting physical injury, violence, robbery and other heinous crimes in progress.
8. Not seeking help from SABA or elsewhere before walking into the PD and sheriff’s dept.

Once again, ignorance and wrong assumptions are all too often end up in a wrong result.

No one can skip the process and steps necessary and then expect the judicial system to work for you. You can’t have both ways. You have to do your part right by following the established legal procedures step by step.

There’ s nothing to stop you from try it again and if you do, do it right the next time, and press on.
It’ll get done for sure.

Scheduling a forthcoming DASA (Defunct ASA) check ride, and it’s not funny.

My conjecture from the sideline:

CFI – Certified Flight Instructor
DPE – Designated Pilot Examiner

– Plausible hone conversation between CFI and DPE –

CFI: Hi , Jim here… used to be at Castle ASA remember me?
Hey listen, I’ve got a student ready for a commercial check ride real soon.

DPE: Hi Jim, I’ve heard you guys were closed and Prince and Reny are in hot water…………..
so what about this check ride? Has he met all requirements and the paper work ready?

CFI: Yup. no problem there, he’s ready and I’ll have all paper work ready for you.
How about Saturday at Yandell Ranch OK?

DPE: Where?

CFI: you know the small private field about 7 miles west of town on 132…
we’ve got owner’s permission and everything.

DPE: why not at muni? Besides the runway is way too short over there and they even don’t have fuel.

CFI: we’ve been doing a lot of flying at private fields lately because feds and repo guys are snooping around for some reason, and we’d like to keep them off our tail, you know.

oh don’t worry about fuel, we call up Prince and Reny on cellphone and they deliver it right up,
normally they carry few 5 gallon cans in the car.

DPE: what? You guys been using auto gas? Do you have a STC for that?

CFI: Prince said we do, and I trust him.

DPE: Yah right!

CFI: Hey listen, Prince and Reny are just driving up, I’ve got to run, I’ll call you again later. Click….

DPE: Tche, tche! (shaking head)

Got the picture?

I have the news where these students are going to get their admissions for their check ride

Thanks Mr. Bjoy aden for providing the names, IT SEEMS THEY ARE TALENTED AND CLEVER ENOUGH TO PROVE THE FAA AND THE IMMIGRATION TO LOOK LIKE A FOOL.

Two of the names (KAUSHIK & SHIVANI) were a fish trapper for Prince and Renny, they earned a lot by catching innocent students from India and elsewhere and made false promises even when the school was in the brink of extinction, they even said the student’s it was a summer vacation and they would receive a new laptop from the school when it reopens, and the third name (DEEPAK MAHALA) is a great and renowned person in ASA, an alcoholic and a drugs addict who was and is a hired mercenary for Prince and Renny to threaten the students from time to time. A few number of such cases are also registered against him in the Merced county. And about JIM I have no clue why is he still ******** Prince and Renny’s ***, probably he wants some multi hours so he even wants to triple his multi hours on the Dutchees as he was turned down from Cal Air for not meeting his multi requirements for an multi instructor post. They know it very well that with the current status they can complete their requirements but cannot go on with a check ride, so the next thing they will do is to get an I-20 of a school, get new TSA’s and complete their check ride. And probably they will seek a school which is far away from here, may be Arizona, Texas or elsewhere so that their records cannot be traced.

I have full support for the students of ASA who have suffered such heavy losses, and I am getting other people to help them but my sincere request will also be that all the students and the people who are in support should stand up and stop these kind of mean minded people to get away easily, they dont have any sympathy towards the suffered students, they only know their business, they can dance on their own ones graves for getting their work done. As per my information I have the news where these students are going to get their admissions for their check ride, and I will work seriously to see that I can update the concerned school regarding the matter so that they can not escape.

Secondcity has been barred by WordPress from appearing in search results for ‘American School of Aviation’

This is very unfortunate and we don’t have any idea, why they are doing it or how did it happenned? It can be a technical flaw but our other blog (Study Abroad Commission Junction) with the same tag (American School of Aviation) is featured on the search results.

One of our reader pointed out yesterday in one of his comments and than Echo Yankee also complained about the same thing. All the posts which were published on SecondCity were missing from wordpress result pages and few similar posts which were published by our another blog were showing up there. It is still not showing and our team is trying to get hold of great guys at WordPress but Its mid-night and we can’t do anything about it.

Probably you’ll not be able to search for news & updates related to the American School of Aviation in SecondCity WordPress Blog any more. There is no need to worry, just subscribe to the our feed here or bookmark our url https://2ndcity.wordpress.com.
