"Where Art Thou, Disneyland Bitch Ho?" Judge Gives Poet Pimp of Teenagers Home Detention

Aye on God my Bitch grind? Really?
A Downey pimp arrested in 2013 for selling minor girls in a Disneyland-area prostitution ring won an incredibly lax punishment this week: six months of home detention.

According to an FBI report reviewed by OC Weekly, Rayshaad Dajreon Taite (a.k.a. "Long Beach Truth") participated in the transportation of minor girls from Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Hotel and Circus Circus to Anaheim in an Internet-ad driven prostitution network operated with Curtis Maurice Canady.

In the pimping operation, Taite posted--cough, cough--Hemingway-like prose on the Internet, including: "Aye on God my Bitch grind come join the money team over 800 in 2 hours," "My Nigga cash ain't ready for the LV loafers them Bitches feel like walkin on water," and "I pimp so much every time I hear the words hoe-trap-hooker-blade-Vegas-Break-Daddy-Turn Out-Choose Up-My dick get hard."

Captured Gangster Impresses Federal Judge With Sincerity and Wins Punishment Reduction

A steady stream of criminal defendants regularly arrive in U.S. District Court Judge Andrew J. Guilford's stately, 10th-floor, Santa Ana courtroom for sentencing, insist they'll never offend again and, sometimes while employing tears, seek leniency.

Most of the criminals are probably just telling the judge what they think he wants to hear, but one 26-year-old Orange County defendant landed in Guilford's court this month with undeniable proof he is leaving his gang and wants to turn his life around.

In fact, this defendant left himself no choice. He alerted the FBI to a murder plot involving his criminal street gang. Now, he's a likely retaliation target for assassination.

Orange County Dealer Of Sawed-Off Shotguns, Rifles & Ammo Earns Huge Prison Term

I don't need no stinking gun sales license
On July 10, 2012, notorious Orange County gangster Ralph Castaneda with a fellow hoodlum and a customer conducted an Anaheim alley meeting that resulted in the illegal, $750 sale of a Ruger M77 bolt-action rifle as well as a Duffle bag loaded with ammunition.

Days later Castaneda sold the same buyer three sawed-off shotguns for $1,000.

Because the Eastside Anaheim gangster didn't realize the buyer worked for law enforcement, the process repeated a week later when Castaneda sold a 12-gauge Mossberg pump-action shotgun and a Norinco semi-automatic rifle for $1,200.

Ecstasy, but not for Andrew Quoc Tran
A 2009 Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) investigation into massive sales of the party drug Ecstasy (or MDMA) in Costa Mesa near Orange Coast College resulted this month in a prison term of 46 months for one of the drug dealers.

It's not known what arguments Andrew Quoc Tran's defense lawyer and Assistant United States Attorney Robert J. Keenan made about punishment because U.S. District Court Judge Cormac J. Carney sealed the debate from public view.

Tran, who has been free from custody on $30,000 bail, pleaded guilty in March 2010 to four criminal counts filed in a federal indictment.
