No Plea Deal for Stalkers of Palins

Posted by Ron Devito on December 15, 2011

A federal judge yesterday rejected a plea deal for father and son stalking team Craig (48) and Shawn (20) Christy, because he determined they were a public menace, according to widespread media reports.

The Christys were arrested on August 19, 2011 for violating the terms of a restraining order which barred them from contacting anyone in Alaska except their own legal counsel. The judge rejected the plea deal, because the Christys also harassed Gov. Palin’s attorney, John Tiemessen.

“While one person may be the object of their ire at one point, it clearly shifts to others,” Burgess said, saying the men had harassed and threatened children, law-enforcement agents and judges. “They seem undeterred,” Yereth Rosen of Reuters reported.

Burgess rejected the plea deal, because he did not believe probation would be sufficient to stop the Christys’ stalking.

The father and son duo had been harassing and threatening the Palins and Kristan Cole, and made threats against Obama and Senator John McCain, according to widespread media reports. The Christys stalking included vulgar calls to Gov. Palin’s home; sending the Palins receipts from a gun purchase and telling them of his intent to purchase a one-way ticket to Alaska. Shawn Christy in fact made a brief round trip to and from Anchorage at a cost of $700 around the time of Gov. Palin’s birthday. Shawn Christy also threatened to rape the former Alaska Governor.

According to the Reuters report, Shawn Christy suffers from cognitive dysfunction possibly resulting from his brain being damaged by Lyme Disease. The Christys will stand trial on January 3, 2012 unless a new plea agreement is reached.
