More Details, Nicole Katherine Yzaguirre's Criminal Charge, In Which Secret Service Assisted With Investigation...

Photo from FB Profile of Nicole MissNikki Yzaguirre-Carter, used under First Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism, blog post by John Hoff

Nicole Yzaguirre, who filed and settled a federal lawsuit stemming from allegations of assisting with a forged US Treasury check at the Walmart Cash Center in Bloomington, is still facing a charge in Hennepin County District Court over that incident.

The actual criminal complaint document fell into my hands recently, and it contains interesting details which (if ultimately proven to be true) would show Nicole Yzaguirre to be...


...more deeply involved in the plot to cash the bad check than previously reported based on details in the lawsuit documents.

The terms of the settlement in federal court are known only to be "each side walks away and pays its own attorney fees." If there are private settlement terms which involve one red cent passing back and forth, I am unaware of these terms except insofar as anonymous commenters have come to this blog and asserted otherwise. They have been invited to forward documents by email to proven their assertions, and have forwarded nothing.

Meanwhile, Nicole still faces charges in Hennepin County District Court where she is represented by Jill Clark, currently facing disciplinary proceedings by the Minnesota Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board. Clark is the "notoriously nutty" attorney who frequently represents North Minneapolis "crazies, bad actors, and hybrids of both." Nicole Yzaguirre is the daughter of "anti-NOMI revitalization blogger" Terry Yzaguirre, the "crazy Mpls Mirror lady" who has, at various times, written or published writing defending the TJ Waconia fraudsters, Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer, and Jerry "1564 Hillside Ave. N." Moore, as well as a host of others.

Disclaimer, Well, More Like A "Claimer"

Peripheral yet connected in multiple ways to issues this blog habitually covers, the criminal charge and associated lawsuit are interesting and newsworthy in and of themselves. This blog reserves the right to take fascinating tangents and cover what I please, including events in Timbuktu, if I see fit.

"They Had Prior Conversations About Cashing Forged Checks" (Allegedly) 

Here is the criminal complaint, word-for-word. I have inserted paragraph breaks. These are mere allegations until and unless proven in a court of law.

Complainant, Erik Norling, of the Bloomington Police Department, has investigated the facts and circumstances of this offense and believes the following establishes probable cause:

The Complainant was at Walmart investigating a matter when Loss Prevention Manager Lindsey Moe approached the Complainant asking for him to investigate a separate matter. The Loss Prevention Manager gave the Complainant a copy of a United States Treasury check made out to James O. Bulger and Demitri D. Danner, in the amount of $3,674. The date on the check was June 1, 2010 and the number was 4028 41488713. The Complainant observed that the name James Bulger had been added above Danner's name and that the number 3 had been added to the dollar amount.

The manager gave the Complainant a copy of surveillance video which showed that on July 7, 2010, a black male cashing the altered Treasury check at the Walmart Money Center, 715 78th Street East, Bloomington in Hennepin County, Minnesota. The suspect signed the check in the name of James Bulger.

The Walmart employee that took the check was later identified as defendant Nicole Katherine Yzaguirre. The Complainant pulled up a booking photograph of the defendant, James Otis Bulger, and observed that the photograph matched the suspect observed in the surveillance video cashing the check.

The United States Secret Service was contacted and Special Agent Richard Grossheim accompanied the Complainant on August 20, 2010 to Bulger's home for questioning. Defendant Bulger was arrested. In a post-Miranda, Scales complaint interview Bulger admitted to the forgery. On August 27, 2010, agent Grossheim and the Complainant went to Walmart to question defendant Yazaguirre's (sic) about the altered Treasury check.

Yzaguirre admitted cashing the check given to her by defendant Bulger. She reported that she knew a male that was accompanying Bulger at the time. The male was the boyfriend of Yzaguirre's friend and they had prior conversations about cashing forged checks. (Emphasis by this blogger)

Yzaguirre stated that she knew they were going to pass a forged check. (Emphasis by this blogger) Defendant Yzaguirre reported that the number 3 on the altered check looked different than the other numbers. She knew something was wrong with the check. Yzaguirre said that after the transaction she received a text on her wireless telephone which read thank you. Defendant Yzaguirre then notified Walmart Loss Prevention about the check but did not admit any knowledge that it was fraudulent at the time she accepted it from Bulger.

(End of statement on the criminal complaint)

Young, Dented Prosecutor Must Prove Himself

The Prosecuting Attorney is James P. Farrell, Assistant County Attorney. Farrell is the "come back kid" of the Hennepin County Attorney's office, having served a suspension for a (minor but colorful) "road rage incident." In reading the details, "road rage" may not be a completely accurate description. There was no physical altercation. It was more like "I wish I had a badge so I could pull over that dangerous driver. Oh, wait, I'm a prosecutor. I DO have a badge. Well, let's just see about THIS."

Bad judgment? A little. Well-intentioned? Arguably, yes.

Birthdate Becomes Key To Digging Up Nicole Yzaguirre Info

The photo above is from Nicole Yzaguirre's Facebook profile. Obviously, FB is a fantastic way to dig up info about criminally charged individuals. Of course, part of the problem is avoiding some kind of "name is the same, but it's not her" mistake.

The Nicole Yzaguirre pictured above has the birthday August 28, 1990 according to her "About" section on Facebook. This is the same birthday as the Nicole Yzaguirre in the criminal complaint. "Nicole Pictured Above" also lives in Minneapolis. The resemblance to her mother, Terry Yzaguirre, is obvious. Ninety-nine point nine percent certainty is good enough. Notably, as of today Nicole does not appear to be "Facebook friends" with her mother, Terry Yzaguirre, the crazy Mpls Mirror lady.

Nicole Yzaguirre uses the Facebook name Nicole MissNikki Yzaguirre-Carter, lists her residence as "Minneapolis" but her hometown as New York City. She is interested in "women" and is pictured, extensively, with a girlfriend or partner using the FB name "Wanda FreeDiddy Carter-Yzaguirre."

Nicole Yzaguirre has many photographs but this one, in costume jail garb, with nobody else in the photo seemed the most appropriate for this blog post. There is plenty of interesting stuff in that FB profile but, eh, more interesting if Nicole Yzaguirre were actually CONVICTED, which hadn't happened yet.

You sure are obsessed with this gal.
You used to be obsessed with Peter Stephenson, until people got tired of hearing about him. Now you are stuck on Nicole. Really, no one cares about her but you. But you go ahead and keep blogging about her.
You numbers are in the toilet. Google analytics (which are public)show 47% of viewers are bounces (mistakes from a search engine)that stay on JNS for less than a minute.
But you keep on blogging if it makes you happy.
Obviously, people have something better to do than read about people that have nothing to do with NoMi.
Go back to Pete, you got more readers.

PS I'm not Terry, Nichole, or Jill. They have better things to do too. For that matter, so do I.
CYa!

I have my own stats, thank you very much, and what do I care if people come here by accident and stay less than a minute? A few people who come here by accident will end up staying a long time and becoming regular readers.

By the way, congrats on throwing Spanky Pete under the bus. I thought he was the ally of you anti-Johnny trolls? I guess he's expendable, huh?

Anonymous said...

Jeez John,
You and Pete are both a couple of nut cases. As far as I'm concerned you're both expendable.
At least Pete is laughable. You're just obnoxious, arrogant, and a 1st class egotist.

Johnny Northside! said...

First class? Is that like critically acclaimed?

Anonymous said...

Ya, if I owned the City Pages I'd give you the douchebag of the year award. Which is equal to being voted the best blog by City Pages staff.

Johnny Northside! said...

Is there some kind of PRIZE that goes with that award, other than a mention in the paper?

The Hawthorne Hawkman said...

I'm calling BS on the first anonymous comment there. (For the record, I don't find the Yazz children's stories terribly interesting or pertinent to north Minneapolis, but John can write what he wants on his blog.)

First off, Google analytics is-as far as I can tell-a service one uses on their own site and not one that others can use to measure sites they don't own or operate. Maybe paying for the premium Google analytics service gets you that, but RD did say he's got better things to do and I'll take him at his word there.

Second, someone who stays on JNS for less than a minute may not have been a mistaken site visit. I know when JNS was posting the Keith Reitman transcript (a post I had GREAT interest in) I was coming here pretty regularly to see if there was new information yet. Many of those visits lasted less than a minute, but were quite intentional.

Johnny Northside! said...

Also, some visits that last less than a minute may be somebody who finds their way to the blog searching for information, and finds that information in the form of a live link to another source.

Even if they don't stay on the blog long, I've led them to the information they're seeking. Which is fine bloggy public service as far as I'm concerned.

My visit would have lasted less than a minute; I was trolling down to see if anything looked interesting, and, lets just say that this post caught my eye!

It's almost as good as a new Spanky Pete post.

Johnny Northside! said...

Yes, I also account for many of those "less than a minute" visits to be regular readers who come here over and over, looking for something new, they just can't get enough of the content this blog provides.

Could you PLEASE crop the photo to an above the neck shot?! Prison outfit... go figure!

Johnny Northside! said...

I have the ability to crop my own photos, but I have not figured out how to crop photos that come from other sources.

Besides, I think the "hoochie mama" aspect of the photo is (how to phrase it?) highly revealing. You think THIS photo is bad? You should see the stuff I'm NOT printing, including plenty of "girl on girl action."

Wow, it does get worse then. Thanks a lot for holding back the other pics Johnny.

Also... Doesn't anybody have a mirror somewhere other than in the bathroom? "Hey! Look at me! tryin' to look sexy/tough/cool in the can! Never mind the dirty ass bathtub behind me!" LOL

Anonymous said...

Ish... I'd rather see Johnny crop the photo to a BELOW the neck shot...

Ew.

Johnny Northside! said...

After she's convicted (if that happens) there will be a festival of informative photos, and you can make the thread stretch to 70 posts, if you like, arguing about what should be cropped and how.

Let me guess.

Naked, naked with friends, alcohol, naked with alcohol, drugs, drugs with naked, drugs with naked and friends, gang signs, naked gang signs, and so forth.

Johnny Northside! said...

Actually, more like...

Flipping the bird, flipping the bird with friends, kissing girlfriend, kissing girlfriend, look at me I'm kissing my GIRLFRIEND, wearing much-too-tight little pants, and I'd have to go back and check to see if there's any flipping the bird with girlfriend or flipping the bird wearing much-too-tight little pants.

There are an amazing number of vain self-portraits taken in bathroom mirrors.

Like I said, if she's CONVICTED then it all becomes more interesting, until then I feel like the photo, above, is sufficient.

Johnny Northside! said...

A graphic yet positively-worded comment addressed to Nicole is not being published.

If somebody wants to make positive comments about Nicole Yzaguirre, that's fine, but I'm not going to publish something THAT graphic.

NoMi Passenger said...

Ugh! And you deleted it before I even had a chance to read it behind the scenes??? Not fair. *pouting*

Calling "BS"? What are you, in grade school?
Shut-up and go back to the shire you obnoxious little Hobbit.

Johnny Northside! said...

There was a bowl of chili involved and a mountain goat. You don't want to know.

I'm not kidding.

To the troll at 11:25 a.m.

Oh, you really know how to hurt a geek, comparing him to the hobbit.

Educated women don't post tit-flashes on FB, they don't hang out with crooks, they don't write sentences like a 4th grader and they don't work at Wal-Fart.

Johnny Northside! said...

Nicole, if that's actually you, please provide some proof you "won" your lawsuit. The only proof I have seen shows nobody winning, both sides walking away and paying their own attorney fees.

If you have a settlement document, email it to me at hoffjohnw@gmail.com and I will publish all its details fair and square.

You do realize your lawyer is crazier than a rabid skunk on the Fourth of July, don't you?

BENCH WARRANTS FOR 2 YZAGUIRRE KIDS!!!

MNCIS is currently showing BENCH WARRANTS for both Nicole Yzaguirre and her brother Eric Yzaguirre. More details in a blog post when I can write it up, but that is the gist of it.

AL FLOWERS GIVES TERRY YZAGUIRRE "CRAZY TOWN MOTHER OF THE YEAR" AWARD. Yay, Terry!!!

Anonymous said...

My guess is this case against her is headed down the tubes no matter who her lawyer is. The that will happen is diversion prgram with dismissal after one year it wont wven show in mncis any longer soon so you wont even know what happened. Why don't you just let her have fun with her facebook page and not make fun of her, her pictures, and her sexual preference since she is not a North Mpls criminal, gang member or "anti Nomi revitalization"?

I googled myself, I found this um lady at the top of the search. My name is also Katherine Yzaguirre and I hope that people do not confuse her with me.

Al Flowers? Al please pay me back the money you owe me for the pot. You know who i am. Kate,tell your daughter that she has no shame and will end up being looked at as more of a slut than she already is.

Well, First of all she belongs to the Yzaguirre crime syndicate. She has or had a bench warrent out for her arrest for writing bad checks and associates with known gang members. What the saying, you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a....

Tommy Southside said...

After doing more research on the Troubled Yzaguirre family. It does not appear that Eric, Jerome, or Nicole have enough brains between them to pull off the simplist crime and get away with it.. I have come to the conclusion that the mother Terry Yzaguirre (the godmother) is the brains behind the operation. I really hope the Yzaguirre famiy cleans up their act and be productive members of society.

Case just doesn't pull up right when only searching the name on MNCIS. So here is case number.
