The crazed stalker family that has been harassing Sarah Palin, her attorneys, and friends, are back in the news again.
The father and son team of crazies have been in federal custody since August of last year, after being convicted of stalking Sarah Palin, and others.
In case you are new to the story, Shawn Cristy has been stalking Sarah for years, and even traveled from his Pennsylvania home to Alaska. He sent Sarah a photo of a gun he claims to have purchased, and also promised to rape and kill her, her daughters, as well as a family friend, who also had restraining orders placed on the Christys.
Shawn’s mother was also involved in this years long ordeal, but was not prosecuted.
I should also note the father, Craig Christy left several rather insane and disturbing comments on this blog as we were covering this story. Evidently he’s convinced Governor Palin and his son had some sort of an affair, and now the Palins are out to get him.
Probably why he still has not been released from the federal mental health detention center in Alaska.
From WHTM News:
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – A 20-year-old Pennsylvania man convicted of harassing Sarah Palin’s Alaska lawyers has been released pending his sentencing scheduled for June 8.
Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pa., has been in custody since he and his father were arrested in August, most recently at a federal Bureau of Prisons medical facility outside Alaska.
A federal prosecutor says Christy was released and sent back to Pennsylvania this month after the bureau said in a report he was not a danger to the public.
Christy and his father, 48-year-old father Craig Christy, pleaded guilty in January to making harassing phone calls to Palin’s attorneys. Palin attorney John Tiemessen (TEE’-mess-sen) testified in January that the men’s calls threatened both Palin and attorneys.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Retta-Rae Randall says Craig Christy remains at a Bureau of Prisons medical facility, where he received a psychiatric evaluation. It was unknown if the father and son were held at the same facility.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen an entire family of stalkers fixate on one group. Unless you count the Manson family as a real family.
These people need to be locked up, and stay locked up.
