OAKLAND, CA -- Cal football's recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach has been placed on administrative leave following his arrest last week in Oakland as part of prostitution sting that netted five johns, officials said Monday.
Pierre Ingram, 30, recently named the Bears' passing game coordinator, was arrested after police said he allegedly solicited an undercover officer online and then showed up April 16 at the Motel 6 on Embarcadero.
He was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor solicitation of a lewd act, was booked, cited and released, and given a court date to appear next month.
Cal athletics released a statement Monday that said Ingram had been placed on administrative leave.
"We are aware of the situation and at this time the University is in the process of gathering more information. We were first made aware of the situation prior to the spring game. Coach Ingram did not participate in the spring game (Saturday) and has been placed on administrative leave while the University looks into the matter," the statement said.
"Once that process is complete and the situation has been fully assessed, we will be in a position to comment further."
Cal completed spring workouts last week and will not begin fall training camp until the first week of August. But recruiting is a year-round endeavor and Ingram will not be involved for the time being, at least.
Ingram, who is married, is in his sixth season on head coach Sonny Dykes' staff, the first three years at Louisiana Tech. He was Cal's running backs coach in 2013 and 2014, then was moved to his new assignment before spring workouts.

BERKELEY, CA -- A 20-year-old UC Berkeley student was arrested on suspicion of secretly recording other students in the restroom after a resident of university housing caught him in the act and recognized him as a fellow resident, officials said.
University police arrested Alfredo Mendez on suspicion of video voyeurism -- the act of invading another person's privacy by surreptitiously photographing or recording them on a device such as a cellphone, according to a news release from UC Berkeley police.
A student using a restroom in a residence hall about 11:30 p.m. March 29 told police that they saw a cellphone, with the camera facing up, extended under the stall wall.
The victim left the stall and waited for the suspect to leave the adjacent stall, police said. When Mendez exited, the victim recognized him as a resident on their floor.
Police seized Mendez's phone, laptop and several CDs and DVDs and reportedly discovered additional student victims of video voyeurism in the residence hall showers.

OAKLAND, CA (WCJB) — David Busby, 61, of Richmond, was convicted following a three-day trial that ended on Sept. 19 to possessing and accessing child pornography with intent to view the material. Busby was a computer technician at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He is a registered sex offender based on a prior conviction, she said. According to U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag, Busby was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Thursday. Busby was caught downloading child pornography while at work, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Busby worked part time at National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, which is affiliated with Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, she said. A network security analyst detected traffic indicative of child pornography on NERSC's computer network. The child porn was later tracked to a laptop computer used by Busby, according to Haag. Shortly after the discovery, Busby allegedly admitted to authorities that he downloaded child pornography to two work computers, kept the material for a period of time, then deleted the images, according to Haag. A forensic examination revealed 1,400 images had been deleted from the computers, she said.
Busby was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 9 in a superseding indictment, according to Haag. Busby’s defense claimed he downloaded the pictures by mistake and intended to access legal child modeling sites. Busby was remanded into custody after his trial and was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release, she said.

LAS VEGAS, NV -- A University of California, Berkeley law school student accused in the death and decapitation of an exotic bird at a Las Vegas resort attraction has pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge against him.
A Las Vegas media sources reported that (http://bit.ly/SmFc5v ) Eric Cuellar pleaded Thursday to instigating or engaging in animal cruelty.
He was sentenced to 48 hours of community service and an alcohol counseling class, and also ordered to pay a $200 fine and $150 in restitution to the Flamingo resort.
Police say 24-year-old Cuellar and fellow law student Justin Teixeira (tuh-SHARE'-uh) were seen Oct. 12 laughing and throwing around the body of a dead, 14-year-old helmeted guineafowl at the Flamingo's Wildlife Habitat.
Teixeira faces a felony charge of killing another person's animal and other torture and cruelty counts.

Las Vegas, NV -- Prosecutors filed charges Thursday against two UC Berkeley law school students accused of decapitating an exotic bird at a Las Vegas casino earlier this year. The charges against Justin Teixeira, 24, include felony killing and felony torturing of an animal, while Eric Cuellar, 24, faces a misdemeanor charge of instigating, engaging in or furthering an act of animal cruelty.
"This was a cruel and malicious act," Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said in a statement, adding that an investigation is ongoing and could result in criminal charges against others. "It is important to hold people accountable for their actions."
Police said the two men were seen Oct. 12 laughing and throwing around the body of a dead, 14-year-old helmeted guinea fowl at the Flamingo resort-casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The large bird named Turk was part of the Flamingo's Wildlife Habitat, a garden area with ponds and streams that houses many types of birds.
Surveillance video captured the men chasing the bird into some trees, authorities said, and witnesses told police the two emerged carrying the bird's body and severed head.
Richard Schonfeld, an attorney representing Cuellar, said he was pleased prosecutors opted for a lesser charge for his client.
"Eric has an exemplary background, and I'm pleased the DA chose to proceed with a misdemeanor," said Schonfeld, whose client faces up to six months in jail if convicted. "It's an acknowledgment that he did not physically harm the bird."
If convicted on all charges, Teixeira could be sentenced to prison time. His attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment Thursday afternoon.
Criminal charges -- especially felonies -- can affect a person's future in the legal field. The State Bar of California, for example, requires applicants to demonstrate good moral character. A statement on the bar's website notes that people convicted of violent felonies or felonies involving moral turpitude "are presumed not to be of good moral character in the absence of a pardon or a showing of overwhelming reform and rehabilitation."
UC Berkeley officials were unavailable for comment Thursday, but a statement by law school Dean Christopher Edley posted to the school's website in October said there is not much the school will do to the two students other than alert state bar authorities "of relevant issues."
"We cannot punish someone because of behavior in Las Vegas or elsewhere that tarnished our image or offended widely shared values," Edley said. "Even if criminal." He also said university lawyers told him that the university conduct code "severely limits our ability to discipline off-campus behavior."

A former high school football star from Fresno who played with little acclaim at Cal is being held without bail in Santa Clara County Jail on charges of domestic violence, sexual assault and pimping. San Jose police gave few details about Tracy Slocum Jr., 23, who was arrested Friday in Fresno by federal marshals and Fresno police and then brought to San Jose. The arrest followed a month-long, multi-jurisdictional investigation, according to San Jose Police Officer Jose Garcia. Investigators suspect Slocum was a pimp in several cities over the last few months, he said. Garcia said officers believe there may be victims in the case who have not yet come forward.
After a stellar football career at Clovis East High School in Fresno, Slocum was heavily recruited by a number of top schools but decided on UC Berkeley. He spent three years at Cal but didn't play much. He then took a year off before joining the Fresno State Bulldogs as a walk-on. Slocum told a Fresno TV station last year that he saw his senior year as a Bulldog as a second chance after his tenure at Cal "didn't work out."
"It's a great opportunity" he said. "That's why I'm here."

Jerusalem (WCJB) -- A Tel Aviv district court Tuesday sentenced former Israeli President Moshe Katsav to seven years in prison on multiple charges of rape and sexual harassment. The case involved three women -- two in the president's office and one in the Tourism Ministry. In late December, the three-judge panel found Katsav guilty of two charges of rape, two charges of forceful sexual harassment and one charge of sexual harassment.
Katsav had agreed in 2007 to plead guilty to lesser charges and pay a fine to avoid jail time, but he pulled out of the deal when it came time to enter his plea. The plea bargain caused a public storm in Israel, mainly because it did not include charges of rape, contrary to what had been suggested in a draft indictment. Katsav, of the center-right Likud Party, was president of Israel from 2000 to 2007. He was minister of tourism before that. The charges stem from allegations made against him in both jobs.
2010: Moshe Katsav convicted of rape.
July 29, 2010 SAN DIEGO — Police at the University of California, San Diego, are investigating a noose that was found in a campus building in what may be the latest in a series of racially charged incidents on UC Campuses. School spokesman Jeffrey Gattas says a thin piece of rope fashioned in a crude loop was found last week hanging from a stairwell. To many African-Americans, nooses are a symbol of historical oppression and lynchings. In February, an off-campus party mocking Black History Month sparked controversy and campus protests were held after a noose was found dangling in the library. A student later admitted placing it, apologized and was suspended. In March, a KKK-style hood was found draped over a campus statue. Blacks comprise less than 2 percent of UCSD undergraduates.
UC KKK Chapter!

U.C. Berkeley: Black Male Dead!
Warning to Black Males: Black males, particularly African-American males should use extreme caution when entering the U.C. Campuses, specifically, U.C. San Diego and U.C. Berkeley. The police department is racist and murderous. The campuses represent hostile environments for African-American males. There exists a significant chance (greater than 75%) that you will be injured, arrested, or possibly killed. If you must enter any U.C. Campus, you should consider arming yourself for self-defense purposes!
[A] Sacramento State University student, Nicholas Bailey, 21, (pictured left) who was found unconscious in the 2500 block of Haste Street around 9 am July 2, 2010 at the UC Berkeley Campus, died at Highland Hospital on July 4, two days after he had been discovered lying on the street under a balcony, suffering from head trauma and abrasions around his hands, according to news reports. He was removed from life support after his organs were donated. Bailey was last seen around 1:30 am Friday at Blake’s on Telegraph, about a block away from the campus, according to UC police. Bailey left the bar to walk a female friend home. When he was discovered that morning, UC Berkeley police did not investigate or consider that he had died under suspicious circumstances, Bailey family members told media television. He was suffering from seizures and police at first thought Bailey had fallen from a balcony, according to family members. It was only after an autopsy revealed that he had died from blunt head trauma that police informed the family that an assault may have happened. Bailey had graduated from Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, attended Holy Names University in Oakland for a year on a basketball scholarship, and was majoring in criminal justice at Sacramento State, according to bay area newspapers and media outlets. June 27, 2010 Shaquille Richardson (pictured above) pounds his chest after scoring the first touchdown for Los Alamitos against La Habra. Richardson is facing felony theft charges after allegedly stealing a woman's purse at UCLA. LOS ALAMITOS – Three UCLA football players were arrested for felony theft after allegations that they stole a student's purse from a dormitory cafeteria, police said. Freshmen Joshua Shirley, Paul Richardson and Shaquille Richardson, who is a former Los Alamitos High School football corner back, were arrested on Thursday by UCLA campus police. A woman called campus police on Wednesday to report her purse missing from the Hendrick Hall dormitory storage area near the dining hall, the Associated Press reported. University police investigated the incident and arrested the three cousins, who were booked at the county jail and released on Thursday, AP reported. The Richardsons were released on $20,000 bail and Shirley was released without bail. June 10, 2010 Los Angeles, CA - Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center has been fined $95,000 by state officials for failing to prevent unauthorized employees from accessing patient information, the latest in a series of privacy breaches at the prestigious hospital that has struggled to protect the medical information of its celebrity patients. The fine, one of five privacy-related penalties announced by the state Thursday, is tied to multiple violations of the same patient's records and led to the firing of two employees. Two other people who accessed the patient's information were contracted by a firm that works at the hospital, UCLA officials said. The breaches began June 30 of last year, five days after the deaths of Michael Jackson, who died at the hospital, and Farrah Fawcett, a former patient who had previously had her UCLA medical files breached. The state report identified the person whose records were improperly viewed as a "deceased patient." UCLA spokeswoman Dale Tate declined to identify the patient involved or whether the patient was a celebrity.
March 6, 2010 First, there was the Compton Cookout, an off-campus party involving University of California, San Diego students which celebrated Black History Month by encouraging guests to mock blacks via ghetto stereotypes. Then, a noose was discovered in UCSD's library. And that's not all. On March 2, a KKK-style hood was found on the UCSD campus. What in the world is going on? Perhaps if these incidents were only occurring at UCSD, they could be written off as the acts of attention-seeking students there trying to score as much notoriety as those who organized the Compton Cookout did. But these racially-charged incidents have spread beyond the San Diego campus. At UC Davis recently, a black student found a swastika carved into her dorm room door, the Associated Press reported. Also, at UC Santa Cruz, known in the University of California system as being a left-leaning "hippie" school, the image of a noose was found scribbled on the inside of a bathroom door with the words "San Diego" and "lynch" written on either side of it, according to AP. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recently spoke out about the series of racially-tinged incidents occurring throughout universities. "I am deeply troubled by the horrific incidents that recently took place on various campuses of the University of California system," he stated. "There is no excuse for this kind of behavior in our system of higher education or anywhere else, and it will not be tolerated." Unfortunately, these incidents aren't just taking place at the University of California. A Los Angeles elementary school became the latest site of a Black History mockup when three white male teachers decided to "honor" the occasion by having students carry portraits of O.J. Simpson, Dennis Rodman and RuPaul in a Black History Month parade. Children from other classes at the school displayed photos of more appropriate black role models, such as Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubman and President Barack Obama, AP reported, but these teachers thought it would be funny to honor Black History Month by choosing less than honorable figures as heroes (although I personally have no issue with RuPaul. Unlike the other two, RuPaul has not been in trouble with the law, to my knowledge.) The teachers responsible for the stint have since been placed on administrative leave, and rightfully so. If they object to Black History Month, that's their prerogative, but involving impressionable young students in their mockup was outright irresponsible, not to mention unbecoming of an educator. Last in my roundup of insensitive Black History Month stints are the University of Nevada, Reno and the University of Missouri. At Reno, a white actor in a student comedy troupe appeared in blackface to portray President Barack Obama, AP reported. The same actor told another student in the troupe, playing a Secret Service agent, to hold a gun like a "gangsta." What's more is that the actor portrayed Obama eating chicken and talking about his love for basketball. Seriously? A comedy troupe thought that it would be hilarious to trumpet the same tired stereotypes everyone has heard about black people a gazillion times before. A six-year-old telling a knock-knock joke would have gotten more laughs. This brand of racial stereotyping is so clichéd it's hard to be offended by it anymore. Frankly, it's so uninspired it's boring. Now, for the University of Missouri. There, two students have been arrested on suspicion of hate crimes after cotton balls were scattered outside the school's Black Culture Center, AP reported. I give these kids credit for resorting to racism a bit more nuanced than the blackface/fried chicken/watermelon/ghetto fabulous variety. The cotton balls the duo scattered were supposed to symbolize the cotton picking blacks were forced to endure during slavery. For mocking slavery during Black History Month, these students received their just desserts--suspension from school. November 22, 2009 UCLA will extend Nikola Dragovic's (pictured left) suspension for at least another game following his arrest and subsequent charge of felony assault. Coach Ben Howland said Sunday that Dragovic won't play Monday against Pepperdine, although he will be allowed to sit on the bench in street clothes. The 21-year-old senior from Belgrade, Serbia, was arrested Friday, November 20th and charged by the Los Angeles district attorney's office for his involvement in an undisclosed incident last month at a concert in Hollywood. Howland declined to provide any details on the incident, saying it would be inappropriate for him to comment on a pending legal case. Dragovic has hired an attorney. C.J. Note: Seeing that Mr. Dragovic is "white," he can visa into the country, commit crime and continue to represent a White American institution.
Oct 20th, 2009 | JEWRUSALEM -- "The Israeli and U.S. militaries were set to begin a major joint air defense exercise Wednesday, highlighting military ties between the two allies." C.J. Note: The Jews are not our allies! They are deceitful, lying, murderous thieves. Shame on any American engaging in war on behalf of a Jew!
The UC Regents
The story on Stewart David Nozette, the Jew spy employed by the UC Regents is below!On March 12, 2002, Blum (Jew pictured left) was appointed by California Governor Gray Davis to a 12-year term as one of the Regents of the University of California. Richard C. Blum (a Jew) is an investment banker and the husband of United States Senator Dianne Feinstein (also a Jew) from California. He is the Chairman and President of Blum Capital, an equity investment management firm that acts as general partner for various investment partnerships and provides investment advisory services. Blum is also a Director of several companies, including CB Richard Ellis. Both Feinstein and Blum are ardent, vocal Jewish supporters of Israel, as well as large financial contributors to Israel. Feinstein (Jew pictured left) supported the Iraq war resolution in the vote of October 11, 2002; she has claimed that she was misled by President George W. Bush on the reasons for going to war. However, former UN Weapons Inspector in Iraq Scott Ritter has stated that Feinstein in summer 2002 acknowledged to him that she knew the Bush administration had not provided any convincing intelligence to back up its claims about the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. US Government business contracts have been awarded to Perini, a company controlled by Blum. Blum and Feinstein deny a conflict-of-interest exists with respect to the voting and policy activities of Feinstein, Blum's wife. The Center for Public Integrity has reported that US Senator Dianne Feinstein and her husband, Richard Blum, are making millions of dollars from Iraq and Afghanistan contracts through his company, Perini. Feinstein voted for the resolution. Blum held over 111,000 shares of stock in URS Corporation, which is now one of the top defense contractors in the United States. URS bought EG&G, a leading provider of technical services and management to the U.S. military, from The Carlyle Group in 2002. Carlyle's advisers, past and present, include former President George H.W. Bush, James Baker, and ex-SEC Commissioner Arthur Levitt, among other prominent neoconservatives and Washington power brokers. URS and Blum have since banked on the Iraq war (Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, pictured left), scoring a $600 million contract through EG&G. As a result, URS has seen its stock price more than triple since the war began in March 2003. Blum has cashed in over $2 million on this venture alone and another $100 million for his investment firm. C.J. Note: There have been 4,670 coalition deaths in the Iraq war as of October 20, 2009: The deaths consists of 4,353 Americans; 2 Australians; 1 Azerbaijani; 179 Britons, 13 Bulgarians, 1 Czech; 7 Danes; 2 Dutch; 2 Estonians; 1 Fijian; 5 Georgians; 1 Hungarian; 33 Italians; 1 Kazakh; 3 Latvians; 22 Poles, 3 Romanians; 5 Salvadoran; 4 Slovaks; 1 South Korean; 11 Spaniards, 2 Thai; and 18 Ukrainians, according to a CNN count. At least 31,536 U.S. troops have been wounded in action, according to the Pentagon. However, the Chairman of the Regents of the University of California and his U.S. Senator wife (Feinstein) have made (and continue to make) million$ of dollar$ as a direct result of the war! April 21, 2009 the media reported Blum's wife Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to route $25 billion in taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband's real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms. Feinstein is the Chairwoman of the The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, established in 1975, has oversight responsibility for the 16 civilian and military agencies and departments that make up the U.S. Intelligence Community. Created pursuant to S.Res. 400, 94th Congress: to oversee and make continuing studies of the intelligence activities and programs of the United States Government, and to submit to the Senate appropriate proposals for legislation and report to the Senate concerning such intelligence activities and programs. In carrying out this purpose, the Select Committee on Intelligence shall make every effort to assure that the appropriate departments and agencies of the United States provide informed and timely intelligence necessary for the executive and legislative branches to make sound decisions affecting the security and vital interests of the Nation. It is further the purpose of this resolution to provide vigilant legislative oversight over the intelligence activities of the United States to assure that such activities are in conformity with the Constitution and laws of the United States.
An indictment against Feinstein and Blum should allege (in significant part): conspiracy to commit theft of programs receiving Federal funds, by converting to their own use and the use of others property and funds of The University of California; The State of California; and of the United States of America (Title 18, United States Code, Section 371 - Count One); stealing, fraudulently obtaining, converting to the use of others, and misapplying over $5,000 of those funds (Title 18, United States Code, Sections 666, - Counts Two, Three); conspiracy to commit money laundering (Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1956(a)(1)(i), (B)(i), and (B)(ii) - Count Four); engaging in monetary transactions and property derived from specified unlawful activity (money laundering) (Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1957, 2 - Count Five); and conspiracy to commit theft of honest services by means of wire fraud (Title 18, United States Code, Section 1349 - Count Six).
