ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Two Pennsylvania men convicted of harassing Sarah Palin’s Alaska lawyers were sentenced Friday to time served and five years’ probation, with the proceedings briefly halted after a short outburst in court by one of them.
During his sentencing in U.S. District Court in Anchorage, 20-year-old Shawn Christy said the judge’s order that he live up to six months in a Pennsylvania community re-entry program was “ridiculous.”
His father, Craig Christy, 48, was ordered to perform community service.
The Christys, of McAdoo, Pa., pleaded guilty in January to making harassing phone calls to Palin’s attorneys. Attorney John Tiemessen testified that the men’s calls threatened Palin and attorneys. Both Christys apologized Friday for their actions.
