Ken & Katie Co-Defendant Facing Preliminary Hearing

A co-defendant who prosecutors allege was a key in an extensive real estate fraud conspiracy in Ventura County is set to face a preliminary hearing.

Paul Charles Lascola, 70, of Thousand Oaks, has been charged with 24 counts of felony grand theft and theft from an elderly person (elder financial fraud). His defense is being handled by Justin Tuttle of the Ventura County Public Defender’s Office and is being heard in front of Ventura County Superior Court Judge Mark Borrell.

Lascola’s two co-defendants, Kenneth Powell and Kathryn “Katie” Rose previously pleaded guilty and have each received lengthy prison sentences. The two ran weekend infomercials on KVTA-AM radio under the names “Ken & Katie Show,” “Academy of Real Estate,” and “Money Intelligence.”

The case is being prosecuted by Dominic Kardum and Anthony Wold.
