A Downey used-car dealer who allegedly used voodoo-like dolls targeting the prosecutor and investigators was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison for a multimillion-dollar house-buying fraud scheme.

Ruben Hernandez was accused in 2008 in a series of house purchases using fake Social Security numbers and fake bank statements that defrauded banks of about $4 million.

The U.S. Marshals Service took Hernandez into custody in February 2009 after he became involved in a high-speed chase. A search of his Pasadena home uncovered some unexpected items, authorities said.

"Investigators went into one of the bedrooms, and it was a shrine with a cross and all kinds of skeletons and stuff," said Eugene Hanrahan, an L.A. County deputy district attorney.



"The star attractions were these three effigy dolls dunked upside down in this brown liquid," he said. "One of them had my name, and the other two had the names of investigators."

Each doll had pins in its eyes, he said, and attached to the dolls was the criminal case number.

"Even the U.S. marshals were spooked," he said. Officials decided to look into the background of the shrine, with the help of a UCLA professor.

The professor said the ritual was tied to Palo Mayombe, a religion that was brought to the Caribbean during the slave trade and is known for its animal sacrifices. Over the years it gained popularity among drug dealers, who use it to put curses on their enemies. Experts believe that as many as 40,000 people in the United States may follow its rituals. ... link (http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-voodoo-20100603,0,7236343.story)

Maybe he will magic himself out of jail.

I had a client who thought she could put a hex on me. This was a long time ago, when I was a new worker and was still more easily intimidated by crazy people, but I ended up going to the local voodoo store and buying a "Keep away evil" charm necklace. I wore it the next time I had to see her, and she stared at it the entire time we talked. I totally psyched her out, because she didn't mess with me again. I gave the necklace to a friend, later, who had a neighbor who was allegedly giving her the evil eye.


They sold the kits like that at Skippy Candle, which is no more. They sold all the voodoo and santeria stuff there.
