    I know James personally. He is the softest, kindest person (and boss) you will ever meet. Here is the truth. He had some bad grades as a junior in college, broke into the US State Department computer obtained a passport from a person who no longer needed it, started college all over again, then applied to medical school. You CANNOT be convicted of student loan fraud as a medical student, your student loans are attached to your medical license, but he was tired and broke from fighting the federal government. This was a one time incident and he has been a volunteer in the community and successful businessman for over 14 years. Please don’t make assumptions about a preson you don’t know. I think that is a real crime. We love James.
