Noguez, Salari, McNeil to have first court appearance on Friday

By Brian Hews

Los Angeles County Assessor John Noguez, Arizona tax consultant Ramin Salari, and Chief Property Appraiser Mark Mc Neil will have their first public appearance in a Downtown Los Angeles County criminal courtroom on Friday after the three were arrested on Thursday on dozens of felony charges in a complex conspiracy and bribery charges.

Bail amounts for the three have been set for more than $1 million each.

Cooley said the arrests and charges are part of a continuing investigation into public corruption at the Assessor’s Office. Noguez, who announced he would take a leave of absence in June, returned to work briefly before going out on an indefinite medical leave.
