Butt Ugly Mug Shot of the Week! Congratulations Aurelio Fidencio Saldivar
Barring a miracle by 5 p.m. today, I've got him beat.
And I have to thank Orange County methamphetamine and heroin dealer Aurelio Fidencio Saldivar, Jr., who is also a cold-blooded murderer and member of the Middleside Los Chicos criminal street gang based in the city of Orange.
Saldivar's gang moniker is fitting: "Fat Boy."
Though stuck in the state's worst penitentiary--Pelican Bay State Prison, Saldivar's 2009 conviction emerged in an Orange County courthouse this week when the California Court of Appeal in Santa Ana considered his claims that law enforcement exaggerated the his gang ties and the judge botched jury instructions.
After recounting substantial police evidence, a panel of three justices sanctioned the conviction for the robbery/murder of 26-year-old albino, Russian immigrant and Costa Mesa gang member Raffi Yessayan*** in 2006.
(***The traditionally Hispanic criminal street gang, Family Mob, allowed Yessayan to join. Perhaps he didn't know what he was doing. He was legally blind at birth.)
Anyho, on to "Butt Ugly Mug Shot of the Week" honors . . . please ask minor children to leave the room before viewing:
Yep, that pretty dude is 5-foot-7 and topping 375 pounds and, especially given his criminal outlook, should be allowed to play defensive nose guard for the Oakland Raider's this season.
Superior Court Judge Frank F. Fasel, who is now retired after a distinguished career, made sure that Saldivar has a new permanent home. Fasel gave him a term of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
