Frischling Gets Yet Another Continuance in Felony Case!

Just two days ago Steven Frischling was lying on Twitter to a stranger, insisting that the felony case against him had been dropped.

Oh really? The case has been dropped?

FishTard was due in court today to enter a plea, yet once again has requested a continuance! Well we've "done our homework" and registered for updates on the case and just received this:

8/19/2011

This notification is brought to you by Connecticut Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification (SAVIN) Program.

So Frischling, how long are you going to drag this out for our entertainment? Why won't you be a man and at least work out a plea agreement? You've been caught committing two felonies. You're paying a lawyer instead of paying your rent. How is that working out for your children?

And what exactly are the "multiple reasons" that show you were  "in the clear" to commit forgery and embezzlement? Obviously the police and prosecutors have yet to hear of these "multiple reasons."

    @colpuck that's administrative not plea, must be an error ... next

  2. if the case was dismissed, it would be dismissed! there would no need for an "administrative" COURT APPEARANCE!

    ReplyDelete
  3. of course the case has been dismissed! The court appearance mistakenly entered as a "plea" hearing must really be the "he's super innocent" hearing where everyone will go over the nonstop evidence that show he was "in the clear" to steal all that money. Because those type of "administrative" meetings over dismissed cases always occur in courtrooms in front of judges.

  4. now he's taking a sudden interest in the mental health of anyone who is following this case!

    @colpuck its an incorrect appearance. You have a very unhealthy interest in the life of someone you don't know. Frankly, that's worrisome.

    PS he should be thrown in jail for his constant incorrect use of "its"

  6. I wonder how the judge and prosecutor would feel if they knew about his constant online bragging that the case has been dismissed and the listing for future court dates are "incorrect"?

  7. "I wonder how the judge and prosecutor would feel if they knew about his constant online bragging that the case has been dismissed and the listing for future court dates are "incorrect"?"

    I think we should all tell them about it and share his twitter feed. I think we should all give the prosecutor a call and confirm the real details of this case.

    perhaps the people at the courthouse love frischling soooo much that they purposely make errors on his case by calling him in for administrative purposes just so he will come by to say hi. I mean, he is always in there as people are constantly suing him for one reason or another. they must know him by now.

    A person would have to be on the edge of being delusional to think that he could get away with lying to people who are familiar with the process of accessing basic public records.

    A person can pretend to have photographed a political campaign and can claim to be an expert in all things related to aviation, but one can not hide from real criminal proceedings whose records are kept in The Public Domain.

    It is well past time for Frischling to admit his mistakes, suffer the consequences, and move on with his life. He would probably find it cathartic, though belatedly, to at last spill the proverbial beans.

  9. ^ This is the result of the last time Steven Frischling spilled the proverbial beans:

    Tell us, did your mommy and daddy actually have any children that did survive birth, or perhaps they did indeed circumcise your wrong head.

    Unhealthy interest?

    You little-leaguers are a gas! Your mommy know you live on this shit-blog?

    Hey, how's that Anonymous ride-along going? Got any urban/domestic terrorist activities planned this weekend?

  16. hmmmm....wasn't there a circumcision story in the Fish's past postings somewhere...?

  17. Yeah the turd made up a story about his son being mutilated by a mohel. How do you know it's a lie? Because he says he never sued!! Who the he'll wouldn't sue?? Who the hell wouldn't sue if someone mutilated their kid? Also his kids are not even Jewish bc their mom is not Jewish. So if his kid got circumcised it was probably at the hospital and not by an actual mohel.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Not only did Frischling fail basic spelling, he apparently bombed counting in preschool as well. His wild accusations of who is behind Fish Fraud and its readers has now exceeded the magic number 3 he's always clung to.
    It started with Jasmine (1), then Addison (2), then the mysterious Chris (3, which he/she/it referenced as recently as August 16, 2011 10:21 PM), and now Anonymous (4!). Counting is a lot harder than eating burgers and donuts, but a lot easier than telling the truth, isn't it fatty?

    If those who question your version of recent events have "struck out again" where did you, if I may also use a baseball metaphor, "hit a home run" in this game?

    You claim to have had a felony charge in a case that the prosecutor reportedly believed to be a civil matter and then stated that the charges have been dismissed and that you are exonerated.

    If any of the previous were true, why then is this game which was already into extra innings headed for yet another?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think Frischling's mother won't even have anything to do with him anymore. Seems like his family totally cut him off. He probably tried to steal from his niece and nephew's piggybanks. Can you imagine if you were related to this loser?! Think how often he'd come around begging for money.

  23. wowza!! hey ff, we wanna join your club, what are the dues and what's the secret handshake? I got smokes and my big brother scored some booze. can we meet back behind the garage later? this club sounds awesome. so can girls join? we know a chick down the street with a big rack! she's tough and swears a lot! she's the life of parties she's never attended and she speaks fluent french, in russian! she's all that and then some! can she join? let's go fishin' 2gether!

    ReplyDelete
  24. How is it that Stephen Frischling is an aviation expert, yet rarely gets on an airplane? I've been following this saga since last November and since then he's flown ONCE. One trip! ...and we all know how that worked out. Fish Nuts got suspended from twitter and Jaunted along with 'Luftie' got fucked.

    He's tweeting which seats are best on a Bombardier 400 when he's sitting on his couch looking at seatguru.com.

    The thing that's really sad is that Johnny Jett is buying his line of dog shit. I used to like and respect him until he named Fish Tits 'Travel Twitterer of the Week' a few weeks ago.

    Hey Stephen Frischling! You are the biggest tool on Twitter! Get a clue!

    ReplyDelete
  25. 5:17, of course you want to get access to some kind of "clubhouse." Where is your family going to be sleeping soon?

    ReplyDelete
  26. 5:56... does Johnny Jett have any idea that FishTits is a total joke?

    ReplyDelete
  27. 5:56, actually he has flown TWICE in almost a year. Twice. You forgot about his totally pointless trip to Denver early this year, which he took only because he had a voucher!

    First he was trying to hock the voucher on Twitter and when there were no takers, he just used it himself for no reason. He flew to Denver and then flew right back on the redeye and tweeted the entire stupid experience, complete with photos of every possible airport sign to prove he was actually at an airport. He claimed he was going "to meet a client in transit" which was crap. First, he has no clients. Second, even if he did have a "client," who would need to fly halfway across the country to meet with him/her for 30 minutes at 11 pm?

    But the funniest part - he Tweeted that airport/TSA security kept purposely walking back and forth behind him because he was looking at classified airport information on his laptop (or something equally unbelievable).

    ReplyDelete
  28. what's sad to me is the Frischling eviction saga is that he has a bunch of pets. The kids could end up in foster care (and who's to say they wouldn't be a hell of a lot better off) but the pets will just get dumped off at a shelter and euthanized. How sad.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ^ That is sad, but he doesn't care enough to do anything to help them either. The most important thing to him is himself.

    ReplyDelete
  30. ^5:17

    "hey ff, we wanna join your club, what are the dues and what's the secret handshake?"

    The only dues are that you have to tell the truth all the time. The handshake is not secret, but to be a member of this club your handshake is as binding as a contract.

    "I got smokes and my big brother scored some booze. can we meet back behind the garage later?"

    No. This is an all ages club, so alcohol and tobacco products are forbidden.

    "so can girls join? we know a chick down the street with a big rack!"

    Of course girls can join. Their bra size doesn't matter, but their brain size does.

    Now if you will excuse me, I have to go back to planning my Anonymous urbane terrier activities for the weekend (I'm taking my dog to the library).

    Look forward to seeing you at the next meeting!

    ReplyDelete
  31. hey Fish you worthless pile of crap, why don't you just plead to a misdemeanor so you don't waste money prolonging this case? Or do you plan on keep fighting this case till your children are living in the car and your pets are dead? You're guilty and you know it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. ^ What you are suggesting would take common sense. That would be the smart thing to do. Frischling likes the opposite of the smart thing to do. Obviously he would rather his money go to some lawyer than to take care of his family.

    Now we have two countdown clocks - one to his next court date in the ripped-off bride category and the other to his next arraignment in the felony category.

  33. I wouldn't doubt it if he was buying new ipads and crap like that right now in lieu of being a financially responsible adult.

  34. "To Make A Flying With Fish App ... or To Not Make A Flying With Fish App ... That Is The Question ... #smtravel"

    really? that's the question? not "how can I keep my kids off the streets?" what a douchebag.

    ReplyDelete
  35. it's laughable. He has no hope of making an app himself, since it requires brains and he has none. So it would cost him a small fortune to pay someone to make it for him, and he has no money either. Second, what would be on the app that anyone would pay for? 99.999999% of his tweets are ignored.

    ReplyDelete
  36. He talks big about a lot of stuff he never does. He's just trying to draw attention to himself. Or he has no on to talk to so he just talks to himself on twitter. What happened to all those airport flip-a-roos, turning the airline industry upside down, being the next big thing in social media.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Most people - most normal people, would run out of juice instead of doubling down on lying profusely. Most responsible adults, when faced with the prospect of being kicked out of their home, would not be buying iPads or whatever new shiny Mac gadgets. And most people with a shred of decency would take being sued as a shameful act that would want to alter their behavior. Hell, I'd think that a felony arrest would make me want to go on the path to straight and narrow.

    But this is not the case.

    Had you asked me a year ago, I would have said, hey, if he admitted that he's been living a lie and took steps to repair his reputation, people would have supported that. Now, I'm beyond caring. I just feel sorry for his kids. They have no control over their parents.

    ReplyDelete
  38. "most people with a shred of decency"

    you sum up his issue right there.

  39. I don't get why that stupid, stupid idiot of a "wife" doesn't just take those poor children and leave. Who would leave someone as deranged as Fish alone with children?

    Which we all know not to be true--Steven may block FFs tweets but he certainly doesn't ignore this blog.

    While I enjoy Steven and Susannah's infantile replies in the comments section here because they give me a good laugh (while at the same time confirming his/their guilt by failing to respond to every substantive question asked of them), the more important thing is that it confirms that they come here regularly and read every single word of what is written.

  51. Either Frischling as finally learned how to use spell check, or that Susannah has the mouth and vocabulary that would embarrass a sailor. Whoever it is, just leave the computer for a day and seek some help from a psychiatrist, bankruptcy attorney, or dietitian, or all 3. If not for yourself, for your family. You're not helping matters by visiting here and raising your already high blood pressure.

    ReplyDelete
  52. ^ He can't shut this blog down because he can't explain away anything on it. Steven Frischling is a pathological liar and has been exposed as such. That's now become fact, especially because he has made no attempt to reconcile any of these wild stories. They are simply not true.

    The fascinating aspect is how angry he is at this blog and its readers, as you see by the ranting, foul-mouthed comments he is leaving. This blog and its readers didn't cause his problems. HE did. This blog didn't force him to commit felonies and defraud people. His current legal woes are for things that happened long before this blog began. So why is he so angry?

    Wouldn't a normal person be angry at himself for having made up so many stupid, contradictory stories that were extremely easy to disprove? Wouldn't a normal person have some kind of humiliation and remorse that he had defrauded and harassed people? Wouldn't a normal person at some point thought to himself, "Wow, my family is in trouble. Maybe I should really get a job to pay my rent instead of tweeting Wikipedia facts all day to strangers who don't care about me?"

    Clearly Steven Frischling is not a normal person. He refuses to have any kind of remorse. Thus, this blog continues and grows in popularity and precedence while people enjoy the schadenfrisch. Congratulations, Frischling, maybe how famous this blog is becoming is your only real accomplishment in life.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Funny, we don't sense anger. We just sense there are others that do indeed think you guys are ill. Every time someone posts something against your agenda, you try and spin it into something inflammatory and blame them and their post for any issues anyone else has.

    We also think you spend too much time worrying about others and their lives, and you seem to think you have a background and education in psychological-disorders research or something. We actually think you may border on some serious psychological disorders with this sick blog.

    Face the facts, how long have you had this blog and yet still can't take the Fish down. What is wrong with your approach? You ask questions as if you deserve answers. Many months ago someone asked you who you were and you've since refused to answer. Why demand from others what you yourself won't provide.

    ReplyDelete
  54. "take the Fish down"? you're not serious? You think Fish's career is flying high right now? lol

    ReplyDelete
  58. ^ Responses so far to defend Frischling have all been filled with the same irony. It's because there is no defense.

    ^2:25

    FF has never asked anyone to identify themselves.

    Frischling writes material for public consumption. If not in public, then in forums read by professionals and Frischling's peers (cough). By any measure, that material is subject to criticism and scrutiny. How is it you think Frischling gets granted a special exemption? As it turns out, Frischling's stories, over a period of many years, documented far and wide, are riddle with discrepancies, contradictions, questionable sources, questionable reasoning, etc. Do you have some problem with the public asking Frischling questions to make sure they're getting the best information? Do you hate the public? Do you hate your profession? The lack of significant dialogue is telling. In fact, the more pressed for information, the more Frischling retreats. Sadly, it appears, the more he retreats with hostility. I don't blame anyone for not showing their identity.

  59. "flyingwithfish WooHoo ... 15 free minutes to myself! Maybe I can knock out a blog post on Iran Air"

    Twitter fun stuff, I was just curious, how much time does it take to write 50,660 tweets: Let's say one spends just 30 seconds thinking about, reading responses and typing each tweet -

    50,660 tweets at 30 seconds each since Sept 30 2008 when he joined, that's about 24 minutes a day. However...

    25,330 minutes (50,660/2) = 422 hours = 17.6 days.
    That's 17.6 days of doing nothing but tweeting, twice a minute, 24 hours a day. Looked at another way, 24 hours is 3 eight hour work shifts, or 17.6 x 3 = 52.8. If Frischling's written 50,660 tweets and spent 30 seconds on each one, he's spent spent 52.8 working days since Sept 30 2008 doing nothing but writing tweets. That's over three full work weeks a year writing tweets. Just a thought for those paying attention to things like that.

  60. 2:25 wow... just wow. You almost speak admiringly of "The Fish." Like he is so triumphant at this time. If you're not "The Fish" himself then you're one giant moron. Do you respect him?

    The Blog has not "taken down The Fish," as The Fish was never the person of importance that he pretended himself to be. The entire persona of globe trotting, sprint shooting, exclusive lounge dwelling, expert travel blogger was all a hoax of epic proportion.

    The Blog has, however, brought to bear a remarkable level of public scrutiny and systematic debunking of well documented falsehoods spanning more than a decade. The Blog has demonstrated rather well the REAL power of social networking.

    When The Fish is no longer of any further entertainment, I would like to see Fish Fraud turn its attention to Washington DC. There are enough skeletons in enough closets in that city to keep The Blog alive forever.

    ReplyDelete
  67. how anyone can defend frischling is beyond me. he is no different than politicians who cheat on their wives or journalists that make up stories like stephen glass and jayson blair. those people ostracized in the public eye for telling lies and deceiving their constituents and readers. so, how is frischling any different? he decided long ago to take on the role of being something that he is not for reasons only he knows. if he wants to be a public figure with his blog and/or fauxtography, then he is open to scrutiny. when he places conflicting stories that are embedded in the fabric of the internet for all to see then he will be held accountable. there is no denying that he has made up a majority of the stories that he has told regarding what he has done during his time as a photographer and probably as a airplane blogger. I don't like liars, so I commend the fish fraud people for making his lies public for everyone to see. if any frischling supporters have anything constructive to say, then say it. but, acting like a 5 year child with a toilet for a mouth doesn't do anyone any good. as a matter of fact, it just makes frischling look like more of an idiot if that is the type of people he associates with. for as long as this blog has been up, I have yet to see anyone who supports frischling come up with a rational explanation as to why none of his stories add up. does that not bother you? do you think it is ok to fight for someone who obviously has lied and allegedly committed crimes?

  80. ^9:43 Let's not drag the SS freelancer kid's name into it but if you look at the people Fish communicates with frequently via Twitter and cross-reference that with the Sportsshooter membership he's pretty easy to spot. His is an all-too-common type in the sports photography business--young and apparently naive, with a really mediocre portfolio of images and little or no business sense or concern for the industry, who manages to get on the sidelines with credentials from (and thinks it's a big deal to shoot pictures of sporting events for) a place called US Presswire.

    As a brief aside for the non-photographers out there, US Presswire is an agency notorious in the business for getting photographers credentials for events, but not paying them to actually shoot them, and then undercutting other photographers with low-ball prices when magazines and newspapers use their images (thus, it's known among many of us derisively as "US Freewire"). While they actually have a few decent photographers, it has mostly become a haven for hacks and wannabes who don't have the talent, the business sense, or the need/desire to get someone to actually compensate them for their efforts when they actually shoot their pictures. In other words, if you want to get into cool events and wow your friends and twitter followers with tales from the sidelines but don't have the chops to make it as a real photographer, US Presswire is a good place to start if you're looking for credentials.

    As another aside, and to get us back on the topic of Frischling, that's exactly the same way UPI used to be, with the same kind of reputation, back in the mid- to late- 90s when it was on its last legs, and when Fish was getting credentials from them and claiming to be a photographer for a giant, international wire service. True on its face, but the devil is, as always, in the details.

    But back to our regular programming…you know, where we wait for Steven and/or Susannah to actually address, refute, or explain away any of the myriad issues we've asked them to clarify for us time and again…

    If Steven Frischling wants to make money without working, he should just let Sports Shooter members punch him in his ugly face for $5 each. He'd be a millionaire very quickly.

    I am a member of Sports Shooter and I would not pay $5 to punch Steven Frischling in the face.

    Taking that a step further, I would actually donate $10 to Mr Frischling if the money would be used only for food or for rent and I would do this because I do not like the idea of ANY family becoming homeless even if one or more of its members contributed to the reason that the situation collapsed.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I would think a fire truck interfering with a commercial aircraft takeoff would be news of some sort. Yet when I use " fire truck new haven airport runway takeoff US Airways "on Google and news and the New Haven Register I can find no record of this incident over the past winter. Of course we know this person would never fabricate or exaggerate the truth, right?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Obviously a rejected take off is a very, very rare occurrence. A frequent flyer could travel a lifetime without ever experiencing one. Doubt Fish experienced this event during his one flight to Denver or that fraud of a flight to Germany. This guy just does not get on airplanes. What a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I also couldn't find any mention of this incident on the FAA or NTSB websites. What probably happened was that the pilot made an announcement something like this: "a fire truck [other plane, etc.] is crossing the runway and we'll be taking off as soon as he's out of the way."

    ReplyDelete
  117. For a guy that doesn't actually fly, he sure experiences a lot of rejected take offs. Four my ass. He probably hasn't even taken four flights in the past couple of years.

  118. 5:30, 49 CFR Part 830 deals with NTSB notifications. Specifically, 830.5 (a)(12) (ii) states that NTSB notification is required for "Any event in which an aircraft operated by an air carrier...experiences a runway incursion that requires the operator or the crew of another aircraft or vehicle to take immediate corrective action to avoid a collision."

    An RTO, or Rejected Take Off, would be immediate corrective action and it would be reported to the NTSB. Yet a search of the NTSB database for accidents and incidents at HVN turns up no such event.

    @DWiermans Dash-8s are really loud in the cabin, but everyone heard "Watch that G-d damn fire truck!" from the cockpit

    Really?!?! The Dash 8 is an FAR 121 aircraft requiring a closed cockpit door. Furthermore, it has a built in intercom and the pilots typically wear the heavy David Clark type headsets. Interior noise and vibration are at their worst during take off.

    Sitting behind the pilots backs, behind a closed cockpit door, between the engines and propellers at take off power it is very doubtful you heard much of anything except your own imagination. Why don't you stick to BSing us with 5th Freedom Rights instead.

  119. Unsolicited AdvisorAugust 23, 2011 at 6:44 AM

    RTO's (Rejected Take Off) occur in one in every 3,000 flights which results in an average of 16 RTO's per day.+++

    With so many of these happening every day, I would imagine that it does not become widely reported unless it results in a real "near miss" or if a celebrity happened to be on board at the time.

    It is possible, however, that Mr Frischling has experienced an RTO first hand. Putting this into statistical perspective, the odds of making a hole in one on a Par 3 are approximately 1 in 12,500 and many of us probably know someone who has accomplished this and it is nearly four times as unlikely as an RTO.

    Oh its probably a lie for sure, but I was just pointing out that the RTO itself, unlike some of the other Tales from the Fish , actually could have happened.

    That said, though, I am in absolute agreement that even if the RTO did happen it is highly unlikely that he heard what was being said in the cockpit.

  123. @DWiermans @flightblogger I've had four RTOs, first was an @USAirways Fokker F100 a BUF. I recall the sharp left turn onto the grass.

    *****
    Searching the FAA's Accident/Incident Database System (covering the period from 1978 to the present) there are 9 reports at BUF involving Fokker aircraft operated by USAir. Only one of these was an aborted take off. It happened on Jan. 7, 1990, the aircraft was a Fokker F28, and "NR2 ENGINE VIBRATION. ABORTED. RETURNED TO GATE. SECOND ROW COMPRESSOR BLADE FAILED AND WENT THROUGH ENGINE."

    As for the RTO at HVN on USAir, it doesn't appear in the database.

    Wait a minute. Frischling claims to have experienced FOUR RTO's?

    If we are to agree that an RTO happens once in every 3000 flights, and we can accept that anyone who gets on a plane actually COULD experience one of these we have to look with extreme skepticism at a person who claims to have been involved in four of these events.

    A one time occurrence of the 1 in 3000 flights event can fall into the bad luck category, but for this to happen multiple times for the same person should require that the rate of occurrence over time becomes more reflective of the statistical average.

    Putting this another way, a person would actually have to take nearly 12,000 flights over time in order to be on board for 4 RTO events.

    12,000 flights would require that the individual make one flight per day every day for almost thirty three consecutive YEARS!

    Perhaps a more difficult challenge for Fish Fraud would be to find a Fish Story that is TRUE?

    ReplyDelete
  125. The odds of experiencing a 1:3000 event four times is about 1:81,000,000,000,000.

    Typical Fish. He learns of some aviation term on wikipedia, then tries to show how smart he is by using it as much as possible. In this case, I think his little fish brain thinks that an RTO is any time an aircraft has a delay after pushback.

  135. I feel sorry for the fish. I have had an extended, shall we say, conversation on FB....he has made great efforts to say I owe him an apology for asking him to PRODUCE actual photographic proof of his exploits. since he has only produced photos that look like they were taken by some middle school student with a camera I have questioned his supposed "professional" status. his latest response was to call me an asshole...and that I obviously didn't understand what I was talking about. well, I have to say...what brought this to a breaking point was his bullshit about "covering" hurriane irene. really? I was on hatteras island...all you have to do is google search of what irene did to hatteras...and perhaps do a search on my name and see how many front page photos (including the NYC papers) I had. and steven "the douche" frischling is trying to call me out? the guy is a poser. POSER. hell go to his FB page...most of the photos he posts are not even in focus. I have a cat who is blind and I dare say he would take better photos than the fish could ever imagine. peace out.
