Christian Bartels: Trinitas partners can’t hide

Trinitas partners can’t hide

After reading “Trinitas cuts its losses” (Feb. 2, Page A1), it is obvious that Bill Hooper, Ryon Paton and Dave Diaz have no remorse or shame for cheating local business people. These three Bay Area men had enough money to write a check as they “admitted no wrongdoing,” saying they were just cutting their losses. A jury of 12 Valley residents heard evidence for nine weeks in a public trial and determined Trinitas did plenty wrong and their money shouldn’t hide who they are and what they have done.
