Convicted Felon Owns This Business

Looking for a casting director and someone with background actor information I stumbled upon Cyndie James of Rancho Cucamonga and later learned she is a convicted felon, on felony probation for her 5th DUI and getting a divorce. I also learned she served prison time and was trying to weasel out of that felony probation by filing a request for modification of sentence on Sept 7th 2018 at 830 am in R12 before Judge Charles J. Umeda in San Bernardino County California. I also learned she was arrested for theft, forgery, sex crimes, and of course five drunk driving cases, and felony conspiracy to name a few. In checking further she has no valid license as a talent agent in California and she has lost or surrendered all of her other professional licenses. Her real legal name is Cynthia Nava James and she was born on July 4th 1967. You can independently verify all of this by visiting San Bernardino Open Access criminal site and looking up Cynthia James. Once there, scroll down and you’ll see her ten court cases. You can also verify this by reading about her in the Inland Empire news or the San Bernardino County Sheriff press releases. There are many unscrupulous people in entertainment so please be very careful. My initial phone contact with this self-proclaimed agent left me bewildered because she sounded drunk on the phone and out of touch and she was very elusive when I asked basic industry questions. Her business address is invalid as per the City of Beverly Hills and again there is no valid business license on file and no Secretary of State filings which anyone can easily verify. Thank God for this agency and this Web site. Advisory Rancho Cucamonga - Driving Under the Influence & Conspiracy to Commit Hit and Run DATE: May 22, 2015 at Approximately 9:10 PM CRIME: Driving Under the Influence & Conspiracy to Commit Hit & Run LOCATION: Archibald Ave. & 19th St. in Rancho Cucamonga SUSPECTS: Cynthia James, 52 year old resident of Rancho Cucamonga Gary Guglielmo, 64 year old resident of Upland SUMMARY: On Friday, May 22, 2015, at about 9:10 PM, suspect Cynthia James was driving her gray 2002 Toyota Sequoia in the area of Archibald Ave. & 19th St., when she was involved in a collision with another vehicle. Initially, James stopped and began exchanging information with the other parties. The other parties however, noticed James appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. The other parties called 911 to report the incident as James pleaded with them not to. Suspect Gary Guglielmo, who appears to be the boyfriend of suspect James, pulled up after the collision driving his own vehicle. Upon realizing the police were on their way, Guglielmo convinced James to flee the scene. She got back into her vehicle and took off with Guglielmo following her. James left her driver’s license behind when she fled and the other parties took down the suspects’ vehicle plate numbers. Deputies quickly identified both James and Guglielmo. Additional deputies went to the last known address for James in the 8900 block of Citation Ct. and found her and Guglielmo there. James has several prior DUI arrests in her background. Both she and Guglielmo refused to cooperate with law enforcement and tried to hide in the house. Both were taken into custody and arrested for DUI and Felony Conspiracy to Commit Hit & Run. Both were booked into the West Valley Detention Center. Anyone with additional information about this case is urged to contact the investigators listed below.
