You guys need to make sure you differentiate that you are talking about Serene and not Jacquie. She couldn't and wouldn't.... I have known her for a while and all of what u are saying is Serene so be tactful and at least specific!

LOL I have no doubt that Jacquie is capable of, and has probably DONE, MUCH worse than Serene ever could, but I agree about the differentiation.

"City woman offered plea deal in Georgia

***ED - Jacquie Hammond Update (11am) June 22
An Edmonton businesswoman facing fraud charges in Georgia has been offered a plea bargain deal.
A lawyer representing Jacquie Hammond went to Chatham County Court in Savannah, Georgia Monday to discuss the setting of a trail date.
That was not done but Hammond was offered a plea deal providing she offers financial restitution to clients of a beauty and talent agency who claim she cheated them.
No dollar amount has been revealed but we know Hammond has until July 16th to come up with the money.
If she meets court conditions, it's expected she would be allowed to enter a plea on reduced charges.
Depending on time already served in pre-trial custody, Jacquie Hammond could be released from jail in Georgia where she has been held without bail since last August.

That's great for the people down in Savanah but what about the people in Canada she stole both from her talent agency and the school. Is Canada going to ignore it or do what the US did. Actually punish her for her criminal acts.

I think it's hilarious that she's been in jail almost a year, but I do agree: what the heck is the Canadian legal system doing to prosecute her??

WOW....too bad for Heinz. I guess overseeing the school did not work out too well when you got Jay & Jacquie "BLOWING SUNSHINE" all over the place...this better not fall on his shoulders, those two should " STEP THE FUCK UP!" and make things right, Im sure many who know Heinz whould agree, Heinz is the kind of guy who would do anything for a friend! Im thinking someone was cooking the books too......for this to happen if Heinz was over seeing things!

BTW.....Has CTV...reported lately on anything thats happened since?.......or are they only good at breaking a story?....Ive seen no follow up since last year.....shoddy journalism if this is the case! & what about that BIG TIME casting agent?.......did she make things right yet?.....or is she still blowing smoke where the sun don't shine?.....well FSJ FOLKS?

From what I understood Jay had nothing to do with the school except snort coke in the mens washroom in the downtown school. Bob was a 1 time a week hope he shows up icon. Busta should have been busted, then came along he's replacement a snot of an asshole named Shane dick head painter. Did anyone ever get the point of his level of pitch auditings, could he ever prove that he was right. Or was it his excuse to tune in and tune out. The school was a waist of money and time.

Heinz couldn't have been as honest as he appears he'd had to had been privy to Jacquie's scams.
