      El Monte Man Charged with Creating Phony Army Unit
      NEWS RELEASE
      Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office

      A Chinese national has been arrested on charges he started a phony Army
      special forces unit and recruited more than 100 Chinese nationals into the
      unit by providing them with false documents and uniforms for a fee, the
      District Attorney’s office announced.

      Yupeng Deng, aka David Deng, was arrested this morning by Los Angeles
      County Sheriff’s deputies on a felony complaint for arrest warrant filed Monday
      by the District Attorney’s office, said Deputy District Attorney Richard
      Ceballos. The 51-year-old El Monte resident is scheduled to be arraigned on
      Wednesday at Pomona Superior Court, Department N. He is being held on
      $500,000 bail.

      Deng allegedly gave himself the title of "Supreme Commander" of an
      unauthorized military unit, the U.S. Army/Military Special Forces Reserve unit
      ("MSFR"). Deng allegedly created the phony unit in October 2008 and recruited
      other Chinese nationals, telling them that belonging to the bogus unit was
      a path to U.S. citizenship.

      He allegedly charged each recruit initiation fees ranging from $300 to
      $450 with renewal fees set at $120 each year. Recruits allegedly could
      increase their rank in the "MSFR" by making cash donations to the defendant,
      Ceballos said.

      Deng allegedly provided each recruit with phony U.S. Army uniforms, fake
      documents and fraudulent military ID cards.

      The recruits were also instructed to report to the defendant's office in
      Temple City, decorated to look like an official U.S. military recruiting
      center, to undergo military training and indoctrination. These recruits even
      marched in a parade in Monterey Park and took a tour of the USS Midway
      museum in San Diego all while dressed in uniform.

      Special Agents with the FBI and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service
      jointly investigated the case and presented it to the D.A.’s office.

      Deng is charged in case No. KA093862 with 13 counts of theft by false
      pretenses, manufacturing deceptive government documents and counterfeit of an
      official government seal.

      If convicted as charged, he faces up to eight years, four months in state
      prison.

      In a separate case, Deng was charged on April 6 with one count of
      possession of child pornography stemming from a search warrant executed at his
      home. Authorities investigating the document case allegedly discovered child
      pornography on his home computer.

      He is scheduled to be arraigned in that case -- KA093837 – on April 18 in
      Pomona Superior Court, Department N. If convicted in that case, he faces up
      to three years state prison.

        Hi Sue,

        As I am sure you know, the minimum mandatory sentence for possession of
        child porn under the USSG is five years. With this other BS, he won't get
        the minimum and, while inmates have a certain respect for the cache of a con
        artist, his status as a child perv will have very different benefits!

          But Bill, surely as the Supreme Commander of the Military Special Forces
          Reserves, he has the requisite training and knowledge to successfully
          fight off even the most ardent admirers he's sure to meet.
