An email sent from VINE services announced that Michael Lee Burleson, jailed in April on criminal charges with John Paul Raygoza and Manuel Eduardo Molina, was released today on bail.

Raygoza was released on bail May 10th and Molina on June 21st.  According to the LASD Inmate Information Center records all three men are scheduled to appear in court again on criminal charges July 15, 2011.

On June 6th John Paul Raygoza was given 6 weeks to get his lawyer problems sorted out in the proposed class action suit filed by lawyers representing 50+ named plaintiffs in a claim  naming him and Push Traffic Inc as defendants.

An email sent from VINE services announced that Manuel Eduardo Molina, jailed last month with John Paul Raygoza and Michael Lee Burleson on criminal charges, was released around noon today on bail.

Raygoza was released on bail May 10th.  According to the LASD Inmate Information Center records all three men are scheduled to appear in court again July 15, 2011.

John Paul Raygoza had a court date yesterday. The only thing I’ve been able to find out so far is that he has a new court date and his bail amount has been reduced. Since bail amounts are tied to charges, I’m assuming a charge or charges have been dropped?

This morning there are jail records for 3  individuals named in Case number BHSA077302. Next court date for all three is June 7, 2011. I’m guessing there’s at least a fourth since the case number sequence indicates number “2” is missing from the list. I’ll forego giving my opinion about who that might be at this point.

John Paul Raygoza – Case No: BHSA077302-01, bail now $350,000

Michael Lee Burleson – Case No: BHSA077302-03; bail $455,000

Manuel Eduardo Molina – Case No: BHSA077302-04; bail $200.000

The screencaps of the jail information are at PushTrafficSwindle.com

There is a great service for victims of crime who want to be notified of the impending release of a prisoner. Link to that site is:


You input the inmate’s ID (found at the top of the jail record as “Booking number”), the inmate’s names and your preferred method of notification.

I was notified by email this morning that Raygoza was scheduled for release today. It appears that may have happened.

One can confirm information through telephone numbers on that site, and of course it will show up in jail records once enough time has passed for data updates.

19:07 Edited to add:

Raygoza has been released from LASD Twin Towers as of late today.

Where In the World is JP Raygoza???

Could JR be a guest of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in the “twin towers”?

Seems he’s been a bit scarce, but nobody’s answering questions. It’s not like the egotistical little creep to shun the limelight.

After seeing a comment on the Salty Droid’s blog, I decided to do some checking to see if there could be anything interesting in what the comment was alluding to. The link on Salty’s blog was about a call to what was allegedly Raygoza’s  last known address – http://www.localcrimenews.com/lookup.php?jid=5954399 That address is apparently a penthouse apartment, which would fit with the profile picture on Raygoza’s wife’s FB page earlier this week. The reason listed for the call (April 12, 2011) in the link information was “F PC206 Torture” whatever that means.

I was encouraged by that to dig deeper, which  led further than I expected, and ultimately to the question opening this post. No one I asked would confirm for the record that Raygoza was in jail.

Googling the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department I saw the jail there is called the “Twin Towers”. Obvious next question was “how do I find out if someone is incarcerated there?”

Then I noticed a link about sending money to an inmate… meaning I could likely find out if Raygoza was an inmate by trying to send him money there. If JR were in the “Twin Towers” he might be in need of spending money (in joke for Sandy).  I proceeded to try to “send money” to a prisoner named John Paul Raygoza – and yes  – there is a prisoner there named John Paul Raygoza!!

Carrying on, I found I could also see his arrest record, court dates and disposition etc. and (of course) opt to send money! Since I’ve already “donated” enough to his cause I didn’t.

I tried to post links here to the two arrest records which come up on the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department site when you search for John Paul Raygoza, but because one must enter “kapchas” at a number of stages, direct links won’t work. If you go here and enter his names in the appropriate boxes, then follow through with kapchas, you’ll get to his (current) arrest records.

The 2nd entry shows he was arrested April 27, 2011, charged with a felony; bail set at $455,000; court date May 9, 2011. That information indicates Raygoza is presently incarcerated there.

Two screen caps showing that info are at: http://www.pushtrafficswindle.com/

Guess there’s little more I can add at this point. It seems the crook who hurt so many of us may be about to eat it, if there’s such a thing as karma. I’m sure new information will be coming to light in the next while – when I get it, I’ll publish it here. What I wouldn’t give to be in the courtroom Monday!!!

EDITED TO ADD: a PDF of the results of a query of Raygoza’s name in the online Los Angeles Superior Court Criminal Index – of Defendants in Criminal Cases (rap sheet) may also be found at http://www.pushtrafficswindle.com. If you don’t know (and want to) what the codes for the charges mean,  just google “California penal code” for a listing.

This is so flipping exciting…boy do I wish I could send John Raygoza an email right now and oh….how I would love to see that man in handcuffs. Wouldn’t it be great to be there and be able to look that man in the eye, give him a slight smurk that says…don’t be bending over in the shower JR.
