William Hogarty criminal case likely to come to close this Wed

Original post made by Just me on Aug 4, 2014

If you are following the William Hogarty matter you should know that he will be in court Wed morning in Hayward and the case will likely be resolved that morning. I don't think anyone will be happy with the outcome, but he's not getting away with it without some consequences. As a victim we will always want more, but I guess it's time to close this chapter and hope that karma will catch up with him one day since the law doesn't seem to be able to. He filed a fraudulent bankruptcy and his only penalty was it being thrown out. He stole his employees 401K contributions and was never charged because he made restitution. Then he tried to kill his tenant as somehow got off with just a misdemeanor for this too. All these different agencies can't be guilty of overcharging him. He just knows how to work the system and stole enough money from others that he can hire the best attorney around. If you want to see the case come to a close, be at the Hayward courthouse Wednesday morning.

[Portion removed pending the poster providing a link to the information for verification purposes. Editor could not find the information.]

Bill's co-defendants Greg Lomba and Jim "JR" Rivera both [portion corrected: pleaded no contest to a felony count accessory after the fact] so hopefully this will keep them out of the business for good. I have no idea what sentence they are facing.

Hogarty's hearing is tomorrow morning at 9:00AM in dept 502 in Hayward.

A little good news.....

Some of those named and that had sued him in civil court have settled with him financially which could be causing them to back off. Glad to see at least he is experiencing a little pain in his check book.

As requested, here is a link to James "JR" Rivera's license. If you scroll down to the bottom it reflects "17520 FC SUSPENDED"

Then you google it and find this:

I would appreciate it if you could confirm this and then let the post stand as written.

I recently learned that I live on the same street as this man and his family when asking a neighbor about all the traffic that is in and out of Mr. Hogarty's house. It led me to believe something nefarious was taking place, perhaps the sale of illegal substances. She told me that all of our neighbors have the same complaint and that he is actually a used car sales person and sells cars from his home which explains all the traffic and the never ending variety of cars at his house. I have complained to the HOA and to the police department so hopefully something can be done. It's a lovely area, however I'm not able to fully enjoy it becuase of whatever is going on at their house. I'm not intersted in anyone's personal business, but in this case it is interferring with my ability to reside peacefully.

Hi Kathleen:

It's Sandra from over on Coriander. We met when you were moving in.

Many of us have complained about the activities and traffic from that house. So far the HOA has refused to do anything, but we aren't backing down. It is true that he is a used car sales person which appears to be the source of the non stop traffic and their taking over all the parking by the house.

The house is hers, not his. Maybe we'll get lucky and she'll kick him to the curb. If you google his name you'll quickly see why no one is rolling out the welcome mat for him. If even half of it is true, I can't imagine why she keeps him around. There have been a few incidents with him and he's like a loose cannon so just steer clear.

I know you moved in recently and I'm sorry you haven't been able to enjoy the neighborhood. The wife had a few different tenants over the years and all were fine. Watch for a notice on when the next HOA meeting is being held and show up and express your concerns. I will be there if I am free.

Here's my opinion on this matter:

I used to work for this troll and am glad to hear this case might finally end. He's a miserable and washed up little man with bad hair plugs. (PW EDITOR: You can confirm the accuracy of the bad hair plugs by looking at his photo). His rage is not surprising and is just his way of trying to compensate for numerous things he isn't and could never be and things he doesn't have and never will.

Since the death of his loan company, he has tried business after business from several multi level marketing companies to trying to do credit repair. The one thing they all have in common is that they were all failures. He got lucky with the loan company and owed that success to his loan officers that worked their butts off while he raked in the dough. He will no doubt keep trying to set up company after company but will continue to fail because he's a little man with a trashed reputation he earned by cheating the very people who gave him wealth over many years and the unsuspecting customers he scammed with his loan fraud scheme. Those of us that know him know he acts like he's very smart, but he is just really stupid.

Don't worry that it looks like he is getting off light here. He paid off enough people that the list of those that want him to fall is shorter due to confidential settlements he was forced to make with many of them. While he may remain a free man, just know he has paid through the nose to stay out of jail. And good for those that collected. At the end of the day, most of those scammed wanted their money back more than seeing him locked up. That would just have been a little bonus.

He won't stay out of trouble. It's only a matter of time before his name is all over the news again. He doesn't know how to build a business honestly and is too dumb to realize he needs to surround himself with people that are smarter than him like Olympia funding if he ever wants to achieve success again. And of course anyone smarter than him wouldn't ever get involved with him.

Good luck to all of those that he stole from. I hope you have all recovered and are ready for this just to be over so you never have to hear the troll's name again.

A note to his neighbors.....

You might want to go to the Livermore City Manager's office for direction because I am certain the house where he resides is not zoned for a used car sales operation. You can also go to the business licensing department and let them know he appears to be running a home based business without a business license. Zoning is surely an issue too. I would start with the City Manager's office for guidance. You shouldn't have to deal with such nonsense in my opinion.

At the hearing today, William Hogarty pleaded no contest to a single charge of illegally accepting advance fees for loan modifications/short pays. He was to be sentenced today, but of course he didn't have the $10K that he was supposed to have as the first installment on the restitution he's supposed to make. So the case isn't over because he hasn't been sentenced and he has until November to meet the terms of the plea including the first installment.

There were three victim impact statements read. ABC Channel Seven news was there and did have a camera in the courtroom. It will be on the 6:00 news tonight.

At the end of the day, had he been sentenced to jail time it would have been at the expense of those he is now going to have to pay back. I think this is actually the better result because him in jail won't do anything to get people their money back and it would almost be putting him in jail at the expense of those that will now be paid back.

He's actually telling people he was found innocent when two hours ago he pleaded no contest. He is delusional and now pretending he was a victim. Lol.

This man used to host partiesand it was hell for the neighbors. He turned the area into a party venue with hundreds and hundreds of people with chartered buses and limos for guests. He held these sex and drug fueled parties at the house about every 45 days. Just google "Livermore naughty lingerie party" and you'll see what I mean. They rented out tents in the back yard for hundreds each for complete privacy for the party that rented it. And yes, it involved coupled and groups doing what most of us do behind closed doors. When they couldn't get enough women to come to meet the male pervert party goer needs, they'd bring in "models" for hire. The skankiest of all had to have been his wife and a few of these parties, including one where women including his wife were topless, occurred when his young daughter's were there. I don't know why CPS has not stepped in.

Everyone seems to be thrilled he finally lost the house. He has a seriously inflated view of himself and is actually dumb as dirt. Too bad I'm learning that he is still in town. He should have just moved away instead of forcing his two beautiful girls to deal with the fall out of his illegal activity and the media coverage that followed. They are the true victims here. He's so narcissistic that he thinks roaming around town and showing up at his girls events doesn't negatively impact them and open them up to being ridiculed because of their freaky looking stumpy little con man of a father. He needs to disappear and not show his face in public to protect his children instead of being in their face with them likely too afraid to tell him to go away.

This is just too good to be true. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.

Right after pleading no contest to a crime of moral turpitude, this idiot is planning a "victory BBQ" when he hasn't been sentenced yet for the crime. He will see a minimum of restitution and three years probation and somehow this is a victory. I'm almost hoping he was hacked and this is a joke because c'mon, who could possibly be that stupid.

I think the chemicals he puts in his body have just fried his brain. Who in their right mind would plan a victory party after pleading no contest, which by the way the judge told him was the same as guilty, and before being sentenced??

Hello Again.......
Well I see some people still have not figured it out, who were the ones trying to get out of paying their bills. I have said in the past give him time he'll make some money and he'll pay you back. Who is going to pay back the the US government for all you dead beats who didn't want to keep making mortgage payments(not because you couldn't afford to) just because some one said they have helped others and may be able to save them thousands of dollars off their mortgages they agreed to pay?

SO WHO WILL........You will l will and our kids and grandkids will for many years to come.....

Hope you all have learned something.

THINK ABOUT IT AND HAVE A NICE DAY

LOL. William himself screwed his mortgage company over by not making payments on his mortgage for years, pretended it was for sale so they wouldn't foreclose when in reality he wouldn't let any potential buyer see it, and then he short sold it and screwed his mortgage lender yet again with total losses well over a million dollars on a mortgage that William Hogarty contractually agreed to pay for.

Also, he did the same thing with the lienholder on the building in Pleasanton. He conducted is shady business in the building that he wasn't paying for screwing the lender out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Thank you for your input and proving that William Hogarty is in fact the ultimate DEADBEAT.

By the way, not only did he screw his lenders that loaned him money, but he also stole money from other promising to help them. He did just please guilty to a crime, no? Are we now going to try to say that this plea was also a lie?

Think about it and have a nice day.
