With her dark skin and "unconkable kinky hair," Wanda Coleman found growing up in Los Angeles in the 1950s often felt like torture. "The stultifying intellectual loneliness of my 1950s and '60s upbringing was dictated by my looks," she wrote years later. "Boys gawked at me, and girls tittered behind my back.

A Castaic man was convicted of two counts of fraud Wednesday for failing to disclose assets--including a Cessna 310 airplane--in a bankruptcy petition, the U.S. attorney's office said. The federal jury found that Faramarz Taghilou, 39, claimed he had only $11,100 in assets--neglecting to disclose ownership of the plane, which was insured for $120,000, according to Assistant U.S. Atty. Angela J. Davis. Taghilou now faces a maximum 10 years in federal prison and fines up to $500,000.
