UPDATE: Consumer Takes Sleazy Prius Salesman To Court

Angela Weigold writes in what’s new with her case against a dirtbag Prius salesman. This was a guy who, after the deal went raw, left multiple harassing phone messages daily, called Angela a “whore” and put her phone number on online escort websites:

“December 11th criminal trial was changed to Jan 29th 2007.. We met with the State’s Attorney. The plea bargain was a conviction of guilt on record, $300.00 fine, no community service, and a restraining order not to be in contact with us via in person, phone or mail.. The defendant refused the plea and of course the civil suit is on hold until our lawyer gets the outcome of the criminal charge…”

    Wow, this is the first I read about this…a lot of articles to take in. So is the short story that they did something illegal to his financing, he tried return the car, and the dealer started harassing his wife?

    Scary. I guess he took it personal because they work on commission.

  2. All he’d have to do is pay $300 and stay away from them and he rejected the deal? Seriously?

    Either this guy thinks they don’t have the evidence to convict him or he actually thinks he did nothing wrong.

  3. Sounds like he’s more worried about the conviction part of the deal.

    …convicted of a crime?”

    Actually, you’re talking about a guy who appears to be mentally unstable. So who knows what goes on his head. Looking at this in a vaccuum, I would say that this is a crazy sweet deal and that he is a bona fide fool for not taking it.

    But then again, there are many factors of which we are likely unaware. A plea agreement is a conviction. It may hamper his ability to gain employment in the future. And if this guy truly thinks that he did nothing wrong, he may not be willing to simply cop to a deal that could ruin his livelihood.

    keep in mind, too, that we are hearing only one side of the story. it sounds awful but who knows what this guy actually did or did not do.

    He’s probably worried about the “conviction” part of the criminal case because of the upcoming civil case where he could lose a lot more than $300.
