High Level Financial Management Fraud at the Los Angeles Superior Court and the Los AngelesCounty Sheriff's Department - A Call for Action by US Law Enforcement
Los Angeles, October 13 - Human Rights Alert (NGO) called for action by US law enforcement regardingmounting evidence of high-level financial management fraud at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Secret bank accounts, controlled by the judges of the LASC were exposed over a decade ago in a series of reports by the Washington DC Insight Magazine
regarding secretive corporations, controlled by the judgesof the Los Angeles Superior Court, and inexplicable fund movements in and out of such corporations.Regardless, no report of actions by IRS, FBI, or US Dept of Justice in this regard was ever found.
Last time itwas checked (around 2009), such corporations were still listed by the California Secretary of State.
Additionally, Human Rights Alert documented the designation of all court fees in certain cases of the LosAngeles Superior Court as "Journal Entry", whereas in other cases such fees are recorded as "Filing Fees","Motion Fees", "Stipulation Fees", etc.
Presiding Judge Charles McCoy and Clerk of the Court John AClarke, denied repeated requests to disclose the ultimate designation of such funds.
Accountancy textbook consider the misuse of "Journal Entry" as a cardinal sign of high-level financial management fraud. Of note,until recently the LASC never permitted public access to its financial reports, and today it publishes unauditedfinancial reports.
The online publication of false records pertaining to bail amounts, which were collected from prisoners by theLos Angeles County Sheriff's Department, was likewise documented by Human Rights Alert. The Sheriff'sDepartment refused to this date to answer on complaints on the matter, which alleged corruption and large-scale financial fraud in bail/bond operations of the Department.

The submission was based on media, expert, and official reports from the last two
