    Default Convicted Scientology Criminals

    Scientology seems to have an obsession with crimes and I got a little tired of the same old “OMG Anonymous terrorist” bullshit. I thought I’d feed their obsession a little (and because it’s a slow day at work). Here’s a list of convicted Scientologists (not convictions against the CoS itself, there’s plenty of those too). Each and every one has substantive media articles or court documents to validate the conviction. There were many others who were arrested and charged or are currently pending, but if I couldn’t find proof of the conviction or names had been omitted as is the case in some European and Australian courts, I didn’t include it. If you have any more you know of where a Scientologist was convicted, please post and I’ll add it to the list.

Ron Hubbard – arrested August 1948 for petty theft, unindicted co-conspirator in obstructing justice, burglary of government offices, and theft of documents and government property of Operation Snow White.

    Herb Zerden and Adolfo Quintero, as well as J.W.W. Services, Inc. of California and owner John Woodruff were charged, by the Texas Attorney General, with operating an unlawful foreclosure rescue scam that targeted struggling Texas homeowners. As a result, the 408th District Court issued a temporary restraining order and froze assets belonging to three businessmen who organized the scheme. According to court documents, the defendants fraudulently advertised that they could save homeowners from imminent foreclosures.



    Me? A pain in the ass? Why I have no idea how they could ever consider me such a thing.

    Yay! Maybe now I'll finally get my damn cease and desist letter. :D

    Op updated with Herb Zerden and David Goroway. This list doesn't include pending litigation against people like the unnamed woman in Australia who was forced off her medication and ended up killing her family, the as of yet unnamed kidnappers of Martine Boublil in France who held her against her will for almost two months when she tried to escape, and everyone's favorite New York state senator who slashed his girlfriend's face and assaulted her.

    Several of those listed are in the United States.


    Is that, then, the same judicial system that found O.J. not guilty?
