Yashouafar pleaded guilty in July to an embezzlement charge after being accused of diverting insurance proceeds after a fire at a Las Vegas condominium development. He must pay $1 million in restitution to Paradise Spa condominium residents before his sentencing in November, Nevada court records show.

Ryan Gierach, editor and publisher of the West Hollywood news site www.wehonews.com, said the Nemans, like Yashouafar, are prominent members of the Iranian Jewish community in Los Angeles.
