Actually, I don't know if Brent Hanson of LasikFraud.com is going to prison.
On the 27th of June 2005 the District Court of Collin County Texas found Brent Hanson in contempt for creating websites that attacked William Boothe, MD, a Dallas Lasik surgeon, in violation of a previous court's order. In response to the contempt, the court ordered Brent Hanson to spend 540 days in jail, and then suspended the sentence for 18 months. It appears that the suspension expires tomorrow, December 27, 2006.
What action the Texas court will take to enforce its sentence and whether or not Hanson will surrender to the court to serve his sentence is unknown.
Google has this to say about it. _____________________________________-- Brent Hanson 1687 Whitehall Court Wheeling, IL 60090
Dear Mr. Hanson,
While conducting standard case file research we noticed that on 2/21/03 you were awarded a judgment of $2850.00 in Rolling Meadows Municipal Court against Glenn Hagele. As a judgment holder, you have the right to assign your judgment to a third party to enforce your judgment. If you have not been able to collect this or other judgments, we are interested in collecting them.
We specialize in locating hidden assets and seizing them to satisfy judgments. Our company's fee is based solely on a percentage of what is actually collected.
There is a time limitation on collecting a judgment. If you do not properly act on your claim, it may expire. Please don't let the hard work you have already put into winning this judgment go to waste.
The out of pocket cost to you is nothing. We will bear all expenses involved in the search for assets and enforcement of the judgment. You will received a substantial percentage of the total amount of assets found and seized within thirty days of collection.
If you are interested in the enforcement of this judgment, with no cost to you in advance, please contact me at (847) 981-1330 immediately to arrange for assignment and terms. Since your judgment has been nothing more than an IOU for so long, you have nothing to lose by allowing us to collect for you. Don't delay - turn that worthless piece of paper into cash!
Sincerely, Charles McKinnon Judgment Recovery Specialist
Ah, how "brilliant" of Alcon to have Hagele issue these statements! Possibly Alcon's IR department had a defective calendar that showed the world ending on December 28th?
So, now that December 27th has passed and your predictions have been shown to be completely bogus, what are you guys going in IR department going to do? Claim that Hagele WASN'T acting as your spokesman? Well, it's obvious that Alcan has been funding Glenn Hagele's patient harassment organization:
I'm sure Brent will be very happy in prison - with many new dating opportunities. Everyone knows his relationship with Rosie Palm made him blind - not a LASIK procedure. Shame on you Brent. Alcon's success must drive you crazy. It's kind of funny to see you commit so much energy to discrediting Alcon, but you have lost your credibility and no one believes you anymore. You should have stopped before you lost all credibility.
