You know all I have to say is I am very good friends with his current wife and not only is she a very beautiful woman she knows EXACTLY what she is doing so dont judge unless you know the WHOLE story. lol We all hung out quite often with John and his current wife and I can say he was extremely nice and alot of fun to be with and NEVER once did he " CON " us so I really have nothing bad to say about the man. I wish him well and will continue to be there to help pick up the pieces he left behind.

He does what he does so he can get fucked up the ass by men...he lvoes them!
He uses women because he really wants a man! Just ask those in Coral Springs.
Where does all of the money go?
You are still so bitter! Put that energy towards raising a decent, productive child. Both you and your son will be better off! You've always known what he is and has done, but married him while he was locked up! You didn't mind spending his $ before. You seem just as guilty as he is!

Kentucky, you must be the same woman that had a child with my husband while I was married to him. That certainly doesn't say much about you! Afterall, he had many women, we were just two of them!
Yes I was stupid, but I have learned from my mistakes. Don't we all?
John is no longer a part of our lives, he still must be a part of yours though. I want to keep it that way.
My understanding that you chose not to have any contact with me, my son, John nor his mother...so why do you bother to post a comment on this blog. I do not think that your Attorney would like it or to hear from me.
No need to have any further contact with me nor posting on this blog about me or my son.
You have to live with yourself with your sons' medical condition, so there is no need to judge others. You and John made that choice with drugs.

$240 an hour is nothing to me to pay my lawyer! You can not let this be, can you? What you have posted here about me are lies, thus you have commited the crime of libel. Medical conditions? Drugs? And for the record, you are the one that posted about MY son, causing me to post to defend him! What you have written has been printed and will be hand delivered to my lawyer tomorrow. The papers I served to you, John, and his mother were ordering ALL OF YOU to stay away from me and MY child! It never mentioned that I had to stay away! Hire an attorney and serve me! And who are you to tell me that I can't post and defend myself in this forum? At least I'm stating the truth, which is more than I can say about you!
IF you want truth about medical conditions, look at your kid. How many shrinks have you had him to? What meds is he on? And we all know that to be true so don't even try to defend that! Nature or Nurture? Blame yourself for your kids problems and behavior, not anyone else! If John is so out of your past, why so many comments left by you? Trying to stir the pot? Get your name out there? Face the facts, he never loved you, he married you to get out of prison, he left you as soon as he could...the list goes on. If you want to call that a marriage, go on and keep fooling yourself. You are so sad, but what's even sadder is the fact that you are so bitter by this that you've neglected your son for years! Put your energy into raising a productive member of society and get rid of the negativity! I think a proper post from you is in order. I'll be nice about it and give you 24 hours to retract the comments about medical conditions and drug use and post an apology. If it's not on here by then I will have my lawyer file the papers to sue you for libel. You've already violated the order about contact when you posted here and mentioned my son, so at this point you have nothing to lose except the money it will cost you to fight this in court. I'm sure you still have my lawyers name and number if you decide not to post an apology by tomorrow! Laura

Suing someone for libel? Good luck proving your damages; i.e., your reputation must have been harmed by the written statement(s) upon which you are suing. A jury of your peers would probably agree that your reputation was harmed long ago. Before you go spouting off at the mouth about your lawyer having papers delivered to her tomorrow, why don't you first consult your lawyer to inquire whether in fact you have a cause of action upon which to sue for libel... Sounds like you get off threatening people. Despite the present circumstances that exist today, he loved Danielle like no other. He told me so. I never saw him as happy as he was when he was married to Danielle and they were having a child. His transgressions thereafter had nothing to do with his love or loss of love for her... he's just a rolling stone.

this guy is my uncle, can you belive that?
i am not lying, i swear on my grandpa's grave.
i will never be proud of what he does, he stole from his own sister![my mom]
his wanted in so many states, and has hurt alot of women
about 6 months before he got into jail i saw him and his like "im done with this, and this is the girl of my dreams"

Sweetie, you have a WONDERFUL mom and dad and for that you are a lucky young man and wise beyond your years. Life is about the choices we make. Unfortunately, we do not choose who are relatives are. Not everyone chooses the right path in life. Your uncle has a lot of psychological problems and although jail is where the authorities says he belongs, what he really needs is intensive years of psychological counseling and therapy which he does not get in jail. Sometimes being in jail exposes you to an element of people that causes you to become more involved in crime instead of less involved in crime. It is a shame that he wasted his life. It is even a greater shame how many people he hurt along the way. Your uncle has certain qualities about himself that if used in the right way, he could have been a very successful man. Instead, he chose to use those talents the wrong way, in part due to the influence of some unsavory individuals he met when he was a young man. Continue to surround yourself with good people and your life will be rich and full. God bless you and your family.
I dated this man

For all the posts I have read I am a lucky John Fravel survivor.I dated him when he was in the Marines and lived in West Palm Beach. I broke up with him because something never seemed quite right with his stories. He could be very charming and even wrote me a poem which I still have as I keep everything. I wonder how many other women now have my poem? He used to send me flowers reguarly. He wrote me reguarly when he was in California and proclaimed his love for me. Then one day the letters stopped. I didn't hear from him for over 2 months and then (when he showed up at my front door)he said he was on some secret maneuvers. Yeah right I had a friend check and he was in the brig. I guess he started early with his jail time because he was only in his early twenties. I know love is blind but I sincerely hope that whomever thinks he loves them smartens up and starts listening to what everyone above has said. I was really astonished that this is how he ended up.

this post should not be about the cat fights between his current or former women. Leave all your kids out of this.

Not many kids I know want to brag about a relative of theirs in jail. Not many deserve to be trashed either. So leave the kids out.

Let's see if more of you can bring valid proof to your local police agencies as to what else this CON MAN CRIMINAL HAS DONE THAT HE HASN'T BEEN CHARGED WITH YET? Why I'd bet a dozen donuts that he uses mail and phones to continue cons while he's locked up. I wonder if his BMW has been located and repossessed yet?

This guy had warrants and cases on him in what 5 states? I see posts from all over here. Yeah what a classy guy he is..blah blah blah.......

Let's vote,, I see many more hands rasied that Fravel is back in PRISON where he BELONGS FOR A LONG TIME, THAN THOSE WHO WANT HIM OUT.WAH WAHHH WAHHHHHH. HE'LL NEVER CHANGE. Sure the cops will be waiting with more charges when he gets out so they can re arrest him and repeat the process of locking up the "I PEE PEED IN MY PANTS WHEN HIT WITH THE TASER IN UPSTATE NY convict."

Two of them are adults though...so no child support there. But I suppose they never got it as kids, either.

I cannot believe you all are still carrying on about this low life con man! I am one of his victims and have now moved on. You should too! Luckily he did not do too much psychological and financial damage to me. I am one of the lucky ones! It's unfortunate that he has been such a negative influence in so many people's lives. He will never change, that's why he still sits in his Cuyuga county jail cell waiting for trial, then onto FL. I hope he spends the rest of his miserable life in jail! A narcissistic psycho path cannot be helped by counseling and psychiatry, he deserves to be caged till the day he dies.
I second that
