Wonder why Jim Piretti, E.A.-- whose office was in Woodland Hills, CA -- has so much freedom? Ask Jim. Jim Piretti knows the score. For more about Operation Underscore, see him here. Operation Underscore, sponsored by James Piretti, former I.R.S. employee.

I know this is "old news" now, but does anyone know whatever happened with this case. Did he go to prison? Where? Is he still there with the other scumbags? Please update.

Word has it that his consistent clients were typically Simi Valley and Burbank residents who worked as Los Angeles Police Officers, Burbank Police officers as well as California prison guards. Has anyone heard anything about where he is, now?
