Some people get far selling snake oil. Cesar Duran is going to prison for up to 30 years. The 47-year-old fortuneteller was just convicted on nine felony sex counts for convincing two teenage girls that he could improve their bleak futures—if they slept with him:

Defense lawyer Gregory Humphries insisted the girls were lying and says a cold interrogation room led to Duran’s videotaped confession.

Guess whose future looks bleak now.
