Another bottom feeding moron caught. Seems this ARIZONA judge
thinks posing as a war hero is a crime, espceially when you use it to defraud people. He must have been friends with the guy that owns the scottsdale gun club....
Again, federal judges don't think this is a crime, its freedom of speech.
P.S. he was not posing as an SF soldier so he does not "earn" special attention in the forum "The Hall of Shame".
Judge Finds Fake Marine Guilty of Fraud Schemes

PHOENIX - A Scottsdale man has been found guilty of fraud schemes after pretending to be a decorated Marine.
A judge found John W. Rodriguez guilty of 12 counts including fraud schemes and forgery.
Rodriguez was taken into custody in California back in July. A bench warrant had been issued when he failed to appear to a court date.
Rodriguez claimed to have some of the highest honors a soldier could have, but the truth is he never served and when all his lies unraveled, he took off.
His own confession was played in court. He said, "Look I know I did wrong and I am admitting to it. What I did was messed up and wrong. You guys served I didn't."
FOX 10 was there last summer when authorities raided his Scottsdale home. Officers pulled out dozens of uniforms and ribbons meant for the most-decorated soldiers. He even claimed to have the Navy Cross.
Investigators believe Rodriguez posed as a Marine for years. He even wrote a letter to a judge, saying he couldn't make a court date -- because he was being deployed to Fallujah, Iraq.
Rodriguez has not yet been sentenced.
