Hard Times Gangster Spending 24th Birthday Today in Prison

Ayon
Hard Times gangster Miguel Ayon thinks Orange County's criminal justice system gave him a raw deal.

Ayon, who turns 24 years old today, has convictions for two attempted murders, conspiracy, shooting at an inhabited dwelling, aggravated assault, active participation in a criminal street gang and illegal possession of a gun.

He compiled that rap sheet in 2007 when he was 18 and now he wants his convictions overturned as constitutionally unfair.

But a three-justice panel at the California Court of Appeal in Santa Ana note that the person who convicted Ayon was, well, Ayon.

The hoodlum approved a guilty plea specifically admitting he tried to kill people for the benefit of Hard Times.

"The above factual statements are true and correct and are the basis for my guilty plea," reads the documents Ayon signed. "By signing this document, I acknowledge that I read and write the English language and I understand everything written and typed in this document. I declare under penalty of perjury the above is true and correct."

In exchange for admitting his guilt before trial, Orange County prosecutors dropped multiple counts and agreed with the defendant to send him away to prison for a certain time, an amount approved by Superior Court Judge Craig E. Robison.

The appellate judges this month didn't find any issue that bothered them about the deal and rejected the appeal as meritless.

Upshot: Ayon will continue serving his 26-year punishment at California State Prison in Los Angeles County.

Scott, I wasn't blaming you for the ponzi scheme. It was an example of the uneven distribution of justice here in OC not related to the tone of which I am citing as a major change in YOU as a person. Let me be clear: I am speaking to the toe of which you treat the subjects of your articles.

You have taken on a tone of one who takes glee in the fate of others and ESPECIALLY in cases such as Jesus Aguirre; Your tone was one of glee as in nah nah nah nah you got double liufe without parole in Pelican Bay you lil gang banger.

I cited the Kohls vs the Ponzi scheme defendants as an example of uneven application of sentencing in the OC.

Does that make it clear now? If I was not clear about that in my statements, I apologize and did not mean to attribute any character defects to you other than the change in your tone which would be readily apparent to any casual observer who has read every single piece you have written since the OC Weekly first burst on the scene in OC.

In reference to your below the belt swipe at me, one of the your biggest fans who has read every single piece you've written since you came here from the white house press pool I will email you just now with the documents so you can at the least have the benefit of being an informed on if youre going to take cheap shots at me.

Im sure your buddies at the Fib OC will relish it jealously.

Wow and Jesus Aguirre got two life terms at 16 years old for less than half of those charges.

@paullucas714 @rscottmoxley Paul, you--a former Orange County candidate for political office--absurdly accuse me of having glee about the punishment of Eastside Buena Park gangster Jesus Aguirre when it's not true and you can't back it up. You also absurdly accuse me of favoring white collar criminals over poor ones when that's not true and you can't back it up. If you're complaining that I am particularly tough on men who sexually abuse children, then I confess: I am guilty. But please tell me the name of the Southern California journalist who has written more exclusive news articles exposing white collar crooks from the courthouse. I'll standby...

@paullucas714 Mr. Ayon signed a pre-trial guilty plea that gave him a reduction in charges while the District Attorney's office got, in its view, a satisfactory punishment. Mr. Aguirre did not sign a guilty plea, took the case to a jury trial, lost on all charges and therefore had no bargaining power over his punishment.

Scott,

No I am not saying any of that. m not saying or assuming anything you mentioned above. Im obviously not making my point clear. Im stating that I have observed a measurable change in your treatment of defendants in your reporting. Im not saying you are favoring a white collar criminal over sexual offenders or gang bangers or any other type of defendant.

@rscottmoxley @paullucas714 That doesnt make what happened to Jesus Aguire ok Scott. What happened to Aguirre is a travesty of justice. Which is why I assume he is probably getting a new trial.

I did not mean to attribute the Ponzi and kohls schemes to you exclusively. I apologize for the confusion. I just emailed you a shit load of info. Juicy stuff from dirty cops and excops. Youll love it

@paullucas714 @rscottmoxley Paul, you continue to ramble incoherently. I've covered the courthouses for 18 years. Did you find that non-existent Ponzi scheme article you blamed me for?

@rscottmoxley @paullucas714 You would be wrong Scott. Im speaking to the tone of your writings. Your tone is markedly different from when you covered primarily the county courthouse events.

@paullucas714 @rscottmoxley Wow. You're hallucinating to make ridiculous assertions based on erroneous facts. I have not once cheered Aguirre's fate and your attempt to concoct an air chair psychological assessment of my crime coverage collapses with the slightest inquiry. While I did break the courthouse news about the Kohl's coupon thief, I don't recall writing this month about any Ponzi schemes. You may have confused me for my colleague Matt Coker, who has written on that topic at least three times in October. I'll be kind and assume your recklessness today is due to valid worries about your upcoming felony criminal trial on narcotics and weapons charges.

@rscottmoxley On a side note Scott, you seemed to take particular  glee in the fate of Jesus Aguirre. I find that to be quite disturbing. In fact, your writings have taken on a whole new tone of late. I would characterize your expressions as one of a victim bent on getting revenge at very opportunity by cheering the most horrendous punishments on defendants for offenses of which white collar criminal get the equivalent of wrist slaps for. For example, the disparity of the Kohls coupon counter fitter v the 15 million dollar ponzi scam artist two weeks ago. What gives?

@rscottmoxley @paullucas714 if my memory serves me right, I believer his new trail will be based on the fact that judge Prickett did not allow a key piece of testimony to be heard in the first trial.

@paullucas714 @rscottmoxley You're free to assume that outcome, but just know that the appellate justices--hardly fans of criminal street gang members--give tremendous weight to the verdicts of juries that heard the evidence, considered the defense arguments and, in this case, found guilt on all counts.
