Seems like the Steven Kraut controversy fell off this "topix" web site. Had a lot of posts. Did Steve Kraut enter a plea? What happened to Ken Hocter? Tracy Chevrolet seems to be up and running. Rumor has it that the old Pee Wee's is going to be a Mexican Restaurant, bought by the guy who owns the Mexican Restaurant across from the Brentwood Movie Theatre. Maybe that federal indictment was quashed against Steve Kraut? Is Kraut off the hook? Was Ken Hocter ever charged with any offense or was he simply an employee of a guy trying to stay afloat in a sinking economy? Oh well. Merry Christmas!

I am the guy that bought his boat (Extreme Motorsports Cat) from him on a so called "Owner Carried Finance Deal". Unfortunately, I found out after paying $200k for a boat that is worth $125k today that he had a loan on the boat behind my back for $200k. I found this out due to the fact that MY BOAT got repoed due to Kraut not paying the loan payments on the loan he had behind my back. With that being said, I am currently dealing with the FBI and the bank that he defrauded which will result in more Federal fraud charges being brought against him. Come to find out, he has defrauded the bank on Hoctor's boat (originly Krauts) and a RV from the same credit union in Pleasanton. He is screwed to say the least on the Original Charges (which to answer your question are not going away) and these new charges that will be filed against him or used to force a plea bargain. FYI-based on the monetary loss by the bank of Hawaii alone, he is facing a mandatory 84 to 120 months in prison (without the charges being filed against him for what he has done to me). However, I was told by the FBI that if he cooperates and tells all, he is entitled to 1/2 off the mandatory sentence if the judge so chooses.

Thanks for the update. I am waiting for a return call from the FBI regarding the filing of additional charges against this prick.

the funny part is, Kraut is doing business like he doesn't have a care in the world. He just finished doing an Excalibur for a guy I know and now he is doing a Camaro for another guy I also know. Who in their right mind would trust him with their car?

I see his showroom and warehouse is now empty on the highway. I would be willing to bet he never paid the rent there either. He must have a damned good attorney. I've never seen anyone get as many court postponments as he has.

Hocter is still working at Dublin VW as the service manager.

Payback is a bitch huh? Maybe you should have used the money you spent on that boat to pay your child support. How many cases do you have with the State for Child support? 2-3? I think its about $100K you owe in back support now. Way to go, Fathers day must be a bitch! Who's the prick? CARMA BABY!!

This message is to the
CREDIT UNION/BANK IN PLEASANTON THAT HOLDS THE NOTE ON THE BOAT owned by STEVE KRAUT called "EXTREME MOTORSPORTS" that he then sold on a personal loan to Brian Nolte.

I know where the boat is, contact me on here and I will provide all the necessary info for you to get the boat back.

Sorry Brian Nolte, you don't get to keep the boat! You filed bankruptcy last month, you lost your business in California due to failure to pay your employees, workers comp & L & I claims. OH ya, and failure to pay child support too.

Anyone else looking for Brian Nolte I have all the necessary contact info. I'm happy to share it if he has screwed you over too.

Carma baby!

I wonder how that dirtbag was able to get that Topix forum removed... I didn't think this site had very active moderators. That discussion went on for quite some time! Anyone hear how his last court date went?

Not sure who "DBDH" is? possibly Meashel(wife) or Brian himself considering it shows the author of the post is from Oregon, which I am not. Brian is currently in Oregon & working (& collecting unemployment at the same time). Problem is he brags about still having the boat to anyone that will listen.

I don't know which bank holds the lien, Im working on it with an investigator. Im sure Brian included lots of things in his BK & Im sure he listed Steve Kraut, since Brian says he was the one that gave him a personal note to purchase the boat.

Bottom line is & most importantly that Brian Nolte owes $80,000.+ in child support to ME & over $10K to another case. While he drives around in that boat dumping money into in stead of supporting my 3 boys with him & the other boy from a "fling" 20+ years ago.
He is a DEAD BEAT DAD.
So, take anything that creep says with a grain of salt, he cant be trusted.
He has a Class C felony conviction for assault, I wonder if his employer knows he is a convicted felon? It was to a child that was 2yrs old. Yes he went to PRISON for that!
