Desert Diva's Case Updates
Paul Nichta - On a related escort case which stung a well known provider, according to a reliable source who has seen the police report, the informant was Paul Nichta. The source believes that Paul is helping police to get a better deal and that he may be giving up escorts that were on the Desert Diva's list of those they would verify as legitimate to others.

Melinda Fowler - Bench Warrant Issued - Cash only bond of $5000 - Probably because she failed to how up for a required hearing.

Michelle Lea Evans- Case dismissed

Tanya Lee Powers- Pled guilty to to Class 6 Felony

Lots of sentencing dates on the calendar for later in March for those that did plea deals.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
I do not believe this info is correct. I think you meant to say Paul was infiltrated by a L.E and that is how he was giving up so much info. He was talking to much maybe yes but rolling on girls for what? He is not going to get any types of deals. He is who they want. The plea for all the girls is a mandatory class one Felony and a class 6m.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
But my understanding is and I am trying to get a copy of the police report that Paul was named specifically as the informant.

What is odd is the gals who some know by their stage name vs real name in the Court records were only escorts so why the heck did they plead to a felony vs prostitution which is a misdeomer.

And they did this it seems as a plea bargain for reduction in charges, but still a felony criminal record even class 6 seems extreme if they didn't have anything to do with running the agency.

Aggravated assault s a class 6 felony under AZ Statute 13-1204

But Section 13-604 may be the result, since I am hearing some of the convicted gals are just getting one-year probation:

Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, if a person is convicted of any class 6 felony not involving a dangerous offense and if the court, having regard to the nature and circumstances of the crime and to the history and character of the defendant, is of the opinion that it would be unduly harsh to sentence the defendant for a felony, the court may enter judgment of conviction for a class 1 misdemeanor and make disposition accordingly or may place the defendant on probation in accordance with chapter 9 of this title and refrain from designating the offense as a felony or misdemeanor until the probation is terminated. The offense shall be treated as a felony for all purposes until such time as the court may actually enter an order designating the offense a misdemeanor. This subsection does not apply to any person who stands convicted of a class 6 felony and who has previously been convicted of two or more felonies.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
Dave I do understand were you are coming from. Believe me I think Paul is the biggest creep in the world. The only thing is he is not the one that you are thinking about. 8 people have incriminated themselves one of which is a manager. That manager is under strict pressure due to his family being in the high ranking judicial branch. the class 6 is designated because they were obviously named by the detectives that were undercover and know that they are caught red handed. others just didnt want to pony up the dough for a lawyer to stick up for them.
the class 6 is designated because they are admitting guilt to facilitation to commit Illegal Control of an Enterprise...

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
I agree the felony would be for illegal control for the managers. But I understand some of them that are pleading guilty to it were not management but just escorts. One of my sources knows the gals quite well but was not directly with DD and was not arrested. I forgot the exact number from someone who went to the Courthouse to review documents which are more more detailed than just the minute entries I can see on the web - and it was more than 10 gals that have now pleaded guilty to the felonies.

We may know more in a few weeks from the sentence dates later in March. But understand all or most are thinking they got a plea deal for 1-year probation. Its why the felony that bothers me if just escorts vs lowest level prostitution misdemeanor.

In my view of course this whole thing was a waste of Police and Court resources. While some may not have liked DD, Paul, the Boardroom etc., this was in private consenting adults and very different from the blackmail rape, guns etc not to mention trying to assault and perhaps murder folks of Elms.

Elms should be behind bars for life, DD related folks should have never been arrested.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
i tried to warn paul someone was out to get him.
he thought i was just playing games and really i was but i was serious too.

i was contacted by x and y because they saw a lil tiff me and paul had on ter and thought that i would be interested in taking paul down.
so x and y inform me that they have the dd client list and to prove it they email me full names of the boardroom.

i contacted one of the effers on ter via pm and said yo mr z whats up, i think you got a lil c-queer-ity issue.
so he of course wants to know how i got his name and i told him i didnt like him enough to tell him but that there was some trouble a 'brewing for that group.

so a few hours later i get a 'request' from paul to call him so i do and after an hour of him screaming at me and telling me he's going to 'help' me take down the boardroom (no clue why he thought i gave a rat's ass about any of them) if i meet him for lunch, i decided there was no need to get within stabbing distance of each other and hung up.
i had told him his client list had been stolen and i even posted on ter that i knew of an agency's client list that had been stolen and i wasnt sure what i should do with the information and i felt like i had a responsibility to do something but i didnt know what and then the post was removed.

now instead of going to ter and telling them i outed a hobbyist and getting me banned, and emailing a bunch of my clients and telling them i had outed some hobbyist, i guess those effers shouldve listened to me.

and yo mr z you're lucky i'm a nice girl cuz i know i can't be tried for the same crime twice and we both know the only person i outed you to was yourself.

i told you i dont try to destroy anybody
but i'm no angel. and if i dont like you, i'm not going to help you.
i figure anyone too stupid to see the value of friendship is going to end up destroying themselves anyway and i got better things to do.

whether or not they deserve to be arrested, i'm not the one to judge.
but you reap what you sow.

all that time wasted trying to destroy me, perhaps shouldve been focused on something else.

edit -
by the way, i dont know the names of the guys in the boardroom, i had zero interest.

they are just getting probation for the felony.

if they pled guilty to the misdemeanor offense of prostitution, they'd have to go to jail.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
plus illegal control of an enterprise is easy to explain away to a potential landlord or employer... "oh i got involved with the wrong people, i was young and dumb and didnt understand blah blah".

no way to explain that nasty prostitution charge on your record.

nobody wants the scarlet letter that labels them a prostitute

aka drug addicted,mentally imbalanced, std infected loser with no prospects and no morals who will sell her soul for a buck..... thanks to all the bullshit propaganda that demonified the word you wont even be getting a job at mcdonalds with that on your record.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
"Reliable Source" Update 3/28/09

The Motion to Remand hearing was held yesterday. Very interesting. Scott took the plea and he is getting out with time served. He still has to face New Mexico. The manager there pled guilty in February and is facing 12 years in jail. Authorities there say they are pursuing charges against "2 or 3 others", which translates to Scott, probably Paul, and maybe Peter.

Many have already taken a plea. Paul and Peter did NOT take the plea yet. What they did was ask to extend the Motion to Remand to the date set for taking the deal, April 15th (Marc asked for that date so Peter could finish the work he has to do for his accounting clients). The tape has been analyzed by one of their associates, and it was deemed "inconclusive" in his opinion. It is hard to understand who is saying what, and most of the conversations are garbled. It is being sent to an analyst to see if it has been doctored, but it's by no means black and white incriminating.

No one can understand why they would not accept a trade of Peter for Dave Elms. The Bounty Hunter is positive he knows where he is and said it will be a no-brainer to pick him up. No one can answer to who is leading this case either, it is a real mystery. There is a feeling that there is a personal thing going on against Peter (which we have been saying all along). Even Sheriff Joe cannot explain it. Of course, he thinks it is an absurd case that never should have happened.

The reason Peter and Paul have not take the deal yet, is that they are making everyone swear that Peter a manger. Peter was never a manager, and anyone who calls him in that deal is perjuring themselves. The state is telling the defendants to perjur themselves, and Peter and Paul would not do that. Peter is not willing to destroy his professional reputation for this anymore than they already have tried to, so they might actually take it to trial.

Regarding the offer made to Peter:

Counts 1,3,5-6,8-12, and the allegations of Multiple Offenses all dismissed or dropped.

Count 13: Use of a wire or electronic communications, Class 4 felony: presumptive 2.5 yrs in prison, 1.5 yrs. minimum, which could be as low as 1 yr in exceptional circumstances. With time served and if the judge is kind, he could look at as little as 5 months or no time served.

Count 4: Money Laundering, Class 2 felony: Up to 10 years, probation after release from prison on count 13

Count 2: Illegal Control of an Enterprise, Class 3 felony: Up to 7 yrs, probation after release from prison on count 13

Paul and Scott got the same offer. It is not good enough, and we wonder if it can get any better. They have turned him down twice so far, but he is going to keep trying.

The prosecutor was pissed when the judge extended the motion to remand and they did not take the deal. We feel he will rule in our favor if we get that. She is promising to go back tot he grand jury to submit more evidence, but we do not know what that is. It is all in the balance now, and the good news is that Paul will not lie to save himself. He is trying to be stand up and get Peter off.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
I asked reliable source about the comment about Sheriff Joe. Reply:

Joe didn't participate in this bust because there is video of his boys in Paul's house with a couple of girls, I am sure there were other connections as well...he really does think the case has been mishandled, and does not think it should have gone down the way it did. He would have never done it for sure.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
Court Updates
About a dozen changes of plea to guilty or hearings to have change of plea scheduled etc all for the usual
FACILITATION TO COMMIT ILLEGAL CONTROL OF AN ENTERPRISE Class 6 felony

BUT while so far all the sentences as I recall were for probation only but now we are seeing six months jail time

SARA SCOTT -
Defendant's Attorney: Terry Goddard Jr
AS PUNISHMENT, IT IS ORDERED Defendant is sentenced to a term of imprisonment
and is committed to the Arizona Department of Corrections as follows:
Count 1: 6 month(s) from 3/24/2009
Presentence Incarceration Credit: 35 day(s)
IT IS ORDERED authorizing the Sheriff of Maricopa County to deliver the Defendant to
the Arizona Department of Corrections to carry out the term of imprisonment set forth herein.
ISSUED: Order of Confinement - Certified Copy to DOC via Certification Desk

SHEILA BUCALO - pleads guilty to other than the usual charges:
OFFENSE: Count 5 Amended Money Laundering in the Second Degree
Class 3 felony
A.R.S. § 13-2301, 2317, 301, 302, 303, 304, 701, 702, 702.01, 801, 601, 2313, 2314
Date of Offense: Between 01/01/2007 and 07/24/2008

OFFENSE: Count 6 Amended Operating or Maintaining a House of Prostitution
Class 5 felony
A.R.S. § 13-3208, 3211, 301, 302, 303, 304, 701, 702, 702.01, 801, 610, 2313, 2314
Date of Offense: Between 01/01/2007 and 07/24/2008

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED modifying Defendant’s Pretrial Service release orders by

Lots of other charges dismissed but she pleaded guilty to higher levels felonies but yet gets electronic monitoring off of her.

I didn't realize it till now but the prime judge is Steinle, the same as Dale Hausner's serial shooter judge.

RE: Desert Diva's Case Updates
interesting to note that paul is refusing to take a deal in exchange for naming peter as a manager.

actually it's interesting to note that paul doesnt even have a deal when there's been so much blah blah bullshit speculation about him setting up this person or that person in exchange for a deal.

unless they're keeping it a big secret and having a fake motion to remand hearing as a smokescreen so no one will know.

i would guess they arent willing to take dave elms as a trade for peter because this isnt BASEBALL court and why would they settle for 1 when they can have both. . after all, if the bounty hunter has admitted to the police he knows where dave elms is, isn't he required by law to tell them ?

i'd call BULLSHIT on that bounty hunter or IDIOT, if he's telling the truth cuz i'm pretty sure that if you tell the police you know the whereabouts of a fugitive but you're refusing to tell them unless your buddy can get a deal, there's a good chance you just put your own azz in jail.

but i'm just speculating, like EVERYBODY ELSE.
