Orange Coast College loses foreign student
A 27-year-old Orange Coast College student in Costa Mesa who tried to flee the United States before his sentencing hearing for child pornography collecting and distributing has been punished.

This week inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse, U.S. District Court Judge Cormac J. Carney sentenced Ohanes Hamparsoum Haladjian to a term of 70 months in prison.

Upon his release back into freedom, Haladjian must undergo supervised probation for three years, register as a sex offender, get adult permission to be anywhere near people under the age of 18, and stay at least 100 feet away from schools, parks, public swimming pools, playgrounds, youth centers and video arcade shops.

He must also pay $32 a month for a mandatory, federal computer monitoring service and get federal permission before accepting any job, according to court records.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation caught Haladjian and conducted a raid on his Paularino Avenue apartment.

After his arrest in July 2012, a federal judge released him from custody on $10,000 bail but ordered home detention.

Last March, he signed a guilty plea and two months later saw an early federal report that recommended 87 months in prison.

That recommendation must have frightened him because he quickly purchased a one-way ticket to his native Jordan.

Federal agents nabbed him before he could get on the LAX departure flight.

Carney shaved 8 months off the final 78-month punishment recommendation sought by Assistant United States Attorney Amanda N. Liskamm.

Haladjian, who used an open source public filing sharing program to distribute sexual images of boys around the age of 12, is presently housed inside the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles.

I do not know this guy or anything about his case. What I do know is how easy it is to end up with CP on your hard drive, and the penalties that come with it (federal 5-20) plus automatic sex offender registration for life. A whole generation of young people (men) is having their entire lives ruined over this, and growing every day. The comments on this story speak for themselves. I wonder what the comments will be when it is your son or loved one. Do not think it cannot happen to them.

I used to know this guy. We would hang out almost every day for about a year and drink, bbq, shoot the shit, smoke hookah. He was the one of the nicest and friendliest people I knew.  I never expected this.

There's a lot of angry dads in prison. Glad to see him go there.

Why the heck are we giving student visas for arabs to go to taxpayer-funded community college? Don't they have pilates classes in the mid-east? Or was he enrolled in 

"Early Childhood A101 — Parent/Toddler Workshop"?

Release the transcripts!

@Fernando Rios Greetings Fernando Rios of Orange Coast College: Can you prove you have any justifiable reason to be defensive (see Rios' earlier, stupid comment) about this OCC student's conviction in federal court for possession of illegal child pornography? If you personally know information that indicates this OCC student was not engaged in the distribution of pictures of little boys forced into disgusting, sexual situations or was not a student at OCC, please share your knowledge. I await your answer, Fernando. Is he your pal?

@123dani456 No concerns for you for about 70 months since he is already in federal prison, but his apartment was on the 500 block.

@Fernando Rios Hi Fernando! You want me to believe you can't figure out the OCC tie to this criminal case? Hmmm. I don't want to toss a terribly tough question at you, but might the answer be that the convicted felon subject of the article is an OCC student? Hold on! Don't answer fast. Consult friends. Ponder by yourself. Have tea and cookies, or a jumbo pizza. Perhaps you need to sleep on it and then let me know if you can see the light.

@Matt Ulfelder Hi Matt: You mean other than what's quite clear in the headline and first sentence?

@BigSanti I don't see any comments. You will just have to get your cock sucked by your fellow antisemites and neo nazi's.

'Cause as international students they pay the full cost of their education. And bring in like $20,000 a yr to the Local economy from their home country. They pay $265.00/unit! Most of them are not pervy bastards like this guy, they are cool people to talk to and learn from

Big fan of your work, Moxley.

 I know Ohanes went to OCC at one time, but I believe he transferred to Cal Poly Pomona a year or two ago.
