The Month Is The Easy Part

Santa Ana, CA

Jose Osvaldo Carrillo-Castellanos was sentenced to one month in prison for his role in passing counterfeit $100 bills in Orange County.

Sure, thirty days may not sound like much for essentially bilking god knows how many dupes out of their cash, goods and services.

But he also got three years on "supervised release". That's parole to you and me. That means if he so much as jaywalks, he goes right back in. I'm betting he has no idea how fucked he actually is. Three years is a long time to not get a traffic ticket.

The ring was pretty extensive. Four other are being sentenced in July and August and two more will be on trial in October. One's still on the lam.

Have you hear about the “ Tijuana Noir” marketing story?

Flores Campbell became widely known when excerpts of his ‘Tijuana Noir” appeared on the Google blogspot ‘Tijuana Noir” in late 2005 and caught the public’s fancy. By January 2006 a few chapters on the Ares search engine brought Flores Campbell a global audience.
Technorati.com top 100 Blogs in the blogsphere, sorted by unique links or most favorites named “Tijuana Noir” one of the biggest blogs in the last six months.

So that’s the question, find out why?
