Scenes Cut from Film Hi, Bob! Add Sexy Flavor, But Have Nothing To Do With Money-Laundering
The sexy girls and the chimpanzee were in an unfinished film "Mike" Yassine
produced, not part of his crimes... Yassine was a well-known club owner and aspiring filmmaker in Austin TX. Hi, Bob!, a documentary-style
film, starred many local model/actresses, including Brooke Banx, and a chimpanzee named Cody. The film was never released, but the media was able to obtain footage to spice up their reports
on Yassine's arrest and prosecution. This was completely unfair to the actresses, who were not asked to give permission for
the use of their likenesses, and had nothing to do with Yassine's criminal activities. They are all very nice, law-abiding;
professional young women. Shame on you, media!
Texan Sentenced to Additional
Prison Time for Tax Fraud Scheme
On September 13, 2013, in Austin, Texas, Hussein Ali “Mike” Yassine was sentenced to 36 months in prison and ordered to pay over $2.5 million restitution to the IRS for a tax fraud. On February
6, 2013, Yassine pleaded guilty to one count of procuring the preparation of a false income tax return. According to court
documents, in October 2010, Yassine provided a professional tax preparer with false information to be included in Yassine’s
2009 tax return. Yassine understated by hundreds of thousands of dollars the actual gross receipts generated by his downtown Austin night clubs for 2009. In January 2013, Yassine was sentenced to 151 months in prison after a jury convicted him on money laundering charges.
The jury found that in 2008 and 2009, Yassine used several business establishments to launder over $200,000 in cash, which
was believed to be the proceeds of narcotics trafficking.

About Criminal Minds
Yes, Criminal Minds is a TV show. No, this page and related
sites have nothing to do with that show, though some contributors may be fans. The show got its name from the same popular
phrase which the Criminal Minds Readers & Writers Resource Group, on Yahoo! and now on Facebook, was inspired by. Except the group was founded in February 2000, and the show aired beginning in 2005.
The group ( for which this page is one resource of many)
informs, entertains (well, sometimes), and is dedicated to people who love to read and write books about crime, true
or imaginary, or are interested in criminal psychology, profiling, or anything pertaining to crime, law enforcement, and the
criminal justice system. Join us!

up and I'm unable to fix it on my end, sorry!
Police Limit Comic
is no longer available as an RSS feed. Catch it on GoComics.com or at the even more interesting from a Criminal Mind's perspective, at Police One. Author, Garey McKee, once taught inmates in the Philadelphia Prison System how to operate a computerized printing press operation to inmates.
Thus began his interest in creating a comic strip from the viewpoint of law enforcement. The strip, according to Police One
is "unapologetically blunt." The characters are un-named, which may be one reason why policemen are so fond of the comic,
they can completely identify with it. For the last 10 years, like their real-life counterparts, the cops of Police Limit have
been dealing with pressure they all feel, being caught between the stress of dealing with crime on the streets, and with the
unfairness and sometime cluelessness of police brass, judges, and the media. You can see a new Police Limit comic every Sunday.
Belief that this is "fair use" but no permission given.
Are true crime and crime fiction
novels your favorite bedtime stories? Are your viewing habits contributing to the proliferation of police,
forensics, law, and true-crime programming that's on nearly every channel excepting the shopping networks? Have you
taped all the Autopsy episodes on cable? Are you a frequent visitor to Rotten.com? Are your friends and family worried about your preoccupation with serial killers?
Is your interest in crime healthy?
It depends! Jeffrey Dahmer is remembered to have had great interest in dead animal bones as a child, and his father wonders
to this day whether he made a mistake in encouraging. On the other hand, the same hobby might have inspired an anatomist.
