Bet you a millino pesos that most of his victims were Hispanic. Wisely, they prefer to deal with their own kind. You just can't trust those darn Angloes.

Fat chance he will make restitution. I am owned 60 grand from 15 years ago in a situation like this and the justice system does nothing, so don't hold your breath!

For the record, and for anyone ever trying to track him in the future, Obenauer is a dual citizen. His mother was from a very wealthy Mexican family and was much younger than his father, who also did 5 years for criminal activity). His mother died mysteriously when Leandro was a teenager, and his father had him committed in order to get control of the huge inheritence. By the time he was freed from the nuthouse, it was too late to regain the fortune, which led to his life of crime. His ex-wife, an unruly, mouthy, fat unkempt woman that Leandro was afriad of (and much more horrible person than Leandro), divorced him as he sat in jail for three years awaiting trial. He sat there because I convinced the judge he would naturally flee to Mexico as Mexican citizen if released on bond. His father died, and has a fortune stashed in oversaes accounts, but the New Jersey lawyers are milking it and likely will never allow Leandro to gain access. The only life Leandro knows if thievry, so don't look to him for any correct actions when he gets out. In fact, with as many enemies as he's gained, I'm curious as to how many long black cars will be be waiting for him when he's released. Hey Leandro - ever read the 'Count of Monte Cristo'?

He is my uncle. He is perfectly legal. He grew up speaking english. He is spanish, not mexican. White as paper. Don't be racist, you didn't even know. My grandmother is spanish, off the boat - hence his name.

You can tell who knows the Obenauer's and who does not from these postings. Yes, he did wrong and is serving time, and yes, he will probably leave the country, wouldn't you? Be honest. As far as Karen being fat, unkempt, and worse then he is, you really DON'T know her at all. She looks better than your wife/girlfriend does. She is one of the nicest people around town here in Celebration. She always dresses fine so she hates the malls and likes basic, clean, nice clothes.....what's wrong with that? She tries to do the world for her kids and has made it through the past few years better than most people I know would have. Before you judge other people, judge yourself.
