Standard-Examiner: Amid His Latest Fraud Cases, Wayne Ogden’s Lawyer Withdraws

Looks like that cushy "parole and restitution" jig's probably up for Mr. Ogden, with or without Ms. Corporon's capable counsel

More bad news for serial scammer Wayne Ogden, local poster boy for the meme, "Ogden City homeboys gone wrong."  In the wake of his last conviction, and on the eve of his next federal trial on Ogden’s latest alleged Ponzi scheme, the Standard-Examiner reports this morning that his public defender, Mary Corporon, has given Wayne the old heave ho:
Ms. Corporon's done a yeoman's job over the past six years, keeping Wayne out of the slam for the most part, wethinks. So Ms. Corporon's sudden departure must be giving him some understandable heartburn. With prior 1998 and 2013 state and federal convictions on similar charges under his belt however, and a sentencing hearing looming on his last conviction which could net 20 years in federal prison, in addition to his upcoming April trial, it looks like that cushy "parole and restitution jig's probably up" for Mr. Ogden, with or without Ms. Corporon's capable continuing representation.

As for Ms. Corporon, a few words of consolation:
“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” -Ann Landers
And for poor old Wayne Ogden, who's been dealt far more than his fair share of "second chances" during his previous judicial proceedings:
“Wayne, meet your new cellmate Bubba.” -Rudizink
That's it folks. The floor's open for anyone who'd care to pile on.
