A judge called a former used car salesman a "sociopathic predator" and ordered him to stand trial on charges that he conned single women into emptying their bank accounts by posing as a lawyer and promising to marry them. Municipal Judge Pamela L. Iles also raised James Robert Borzynski's bail from $50,000 to $500,000, saying that he was a fugitive from Wisconsin and that she was worried he would run. "He doesn't use a gun, he uses his mouth," Iles said.

A used-car salesman convicted of romancing three women and then swindling them out of $87,000 was sentenced Friday to four years and eight months in prison, just short of the maximum punishment. Speaking in court for the first time, James Borzynski apologized for the harm he caused and asked for a probation term allowing him to work to repay "every dime" to the women. "I know there was a lot of pain that was caused," Borzynski, 46, told Superior Court Commissioner Walter D. Posey.

The case was spicier than "Peyton Place," more provocative than "Oprah," said jurors who deliberated just two hours Tuesday before convicting a Laguna Niguel used-car dealer of romancing three women and then swindling them out of $87,000. "I'm waiting for the TV movie," said juror Cindy Kindinger of Foothill Ranch. "I want to see how he could be so intense that he could get money from these women in a week."

An alleged victim of James Robert Borzynski, who is accused of charming three Orange County women out of their bank accounts, said Tuesday she now believes in him and wants to see him go free. "I loaned (Borzynski) money as a friend," said the 29-year-old restaurant hostess, who wanted to be identified only as Sarah, her first name. She gave Borzynski about $1,500. "He paid me back. I don't consider myself a victim and I'm going to ask to be taken off the list as those who were victimized."
