From “The Janitor”

janitorMore than one year ago, where are they now?
Check the public record, the state has dropped all charges against Reeves, they think the Feds may step in and charge her but so far …
Cochrane?  [For June news on Cochrane: http://ifawebnews.com/2012/06/12/california-man-barred-by-finra-for-making-two-false-representations/ --Mitch h/t to Anon, I think] The companies often hush up these kinds of investigations lest their customers lose confidence in them.
Superior Court? Forgetaboutit!  The government is the most corrupt of all.
Shorty was the smallest of these fish so he got squashed.

This Week In Embezzlement
Hank Sims / Aug. 24, 2011 @ 3:10 p.m. /  News
Every few weeks, it seems, we get another story about gumptious local folk who refuse to take the recession lying down. Sure, the glory days of the United States are all but over, but that doesn’t stop someone with a little derring-do from bucking the trend by robbing the living hell out of everyone around them.
To recap: Back in April, Eureka’s Tim Cochrane, a former president of Six Rivers National Bank, was fired from his job as a financial advisor at Summit Brokerage Services amid allegations that he stole funds from clients. (Coverage: Times-StandardAdvisors4Advisors.) Those clients have filed a civil suit against him.
At about the same time, Fortuna loan officer Delores Reeves was arrested on charges of bilking elderly people out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by inventing fake investments for them, then pocketing the money. (Please also see our friend Kym Kemp’s superb report from the subsequent civil suit.)
Then you’ve got the big, ongoing and still pretty hush-hush investigation into a staffer’s supposed theft of over $100,000 from the county’s Superior Court.
Finally, you’ve got former Humboldt Crabs Coach Shorty Ames pleading guilty to skimming about $250,000 from the till at Pierson’s Building   Center .

    If nothing else, this is a good reminder that some local reporters do report. Followup remains problematic, in my opinion.

    Humboldt is a great county in which to be an embezzler. You can pillage an institution as large at HSU and get away with a slap on the wirst. God love the DA’s office and each victim organization’s desire to not embarrass themselves further.

    “A slap on the Wirst”. God, how I love freudian typos.

    At least it’s more painful than a slap on the wrist, Henny.

    More and more it’s looking like dope growers are the most honest folks in town.

    I think all the ripoffs are enabled by public attitudes. Nobody wants to rock the boat in our small towns, and you generally do it to your detriment. People who care have the option of leaving. I’m not sure if the outlaw nature of Humboldt’s top business is a cause or an effect, it’s probably a bit of both.

    I’ve known at least since the murder of David Chain just how little respect is due Humboldt’s so-called leaders — embezzlement and theft are nothing compared to murder. http://humboldtherald.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/10-years-since-death-of-david-gypsy-chain/

    Whenever I hear people criticize the current DA, I just remember how the David Chain case was handled before Gallegos.

    I’m not sure it’s better elsewhere.

    David Chain was not murdered, get over it and tell the truth.
