“It was also the cost of living, people who care, with a good work ethic, cooperation and support from the community. We didn’t throw a dart at the map. We want to add value to the community and we want to be part of the community and are looking forward to it,” he said.
Wednesday, although Christie’s attorney, Joe Hernandez, mounted a spirited attempt to get it for his client .
Christie listened as his employer, who claimed to have a cashier’s check in his pocket to cover $105,836 in restit ution, said how much he wanted Christie back on the job.
R.H. Halcomb, who said he was a former senior officer with Citicorp, the major New York-based banking conglomerate, told the court that Christie had worked for him as a consultant the second time he jumped bail and while he was on the run from theft charges.
Halcomb had hired Christie, he said, at a $74,000 annualized salary — not including bonuses.
“Your company needs him?” Hernandez asked.
“Yes. In fact, we’ve been held up two months awaiting resolution of this,” Halcomb answered.
“We were shocked when all this happened, your honor. We Would like to support him while he turns his life around," Halcomb said.
Prosecuting attorney Clayton Haden seemed incredulous.
“How many employees does your company have?”
"IVo, part-time," Halcomb answered.
“Knowing Mr. Christie has been dishonest with you in the past, you st ill want him in your employ?" Haden asked.
“... We still consider him a worthwhile individual,” Halcomb answered.
Pastor Orville S. Passmore of First Christ Church in Aransas Pass testified he had known Christie for 13 years.
“I firmly believe this little incarceration has been a real eye-opener. In our conversations, he has been most contrite," Passmore told t he judge.
Haden knew Christie had reason to be contrite.
Authorities traced Christie through the truck and the cellular phone he allegedly stole from Passmore, and arrested him Jan. 28 at a church Super Bowl pally.
“He stole your cell phone?” Haden asked.
“Yes,” Passmore answered.
“He also stole your truck?”
“Let’s say it was unauthorized use. I lent it to him and he didn't bring it back,” Passmore said.
“The truth of the matter is he took advant age of you
just as he did all these other victims?”
“Thats correct,” Passmore answered. “I’ve forgiven Mr. Christie.”
The defendant then testified on his own behalf.
He claimed that hi1 told the car dealers that he had no funds to cover the chocks he’d written — but had promised he would get the money.
He hadn't been able to say “no" to family members who made unreasonable requests. He was just too nice a gily, he said, and now it was going to cost him.
“Your honor, I sincerely regret that any of this ewer happened,” Christie said.
“I apologize to the court, lf I was allowed to not be incarcerated, it will never happen again. I swear it with my head, my heart and my soul.” Vasquez-Gardner did everything short of nill her eyes to show her skepticism.
“I find you guilty. /MI of your apologies are accepted, but your applications for community supervision art1 denied." the judge said.Berry PartyPick Your Own Strawberries
