You all need to calm down. I believe in making people pay for crimes but this man has never been in trouble ever before. I personally know him and he is good man and will make restitution for his wrong. His wife had been on Dialysis for quite a long time. They had struggled for a few years with supporting this. That was no excuse for him but give him a break. He's 62 years old and would do no one any good sitting in prison. This man will repay his money owed but not with all of you crucifying him for what he has done. For those of you that think differently maybe you should cast the first stone if you are so perfect. He didn't kill anyone in the process so why doesn't he deserve a second chance? This judge did the right thing!
Escuse me...perhaps you are thinking of the wrong person. This Bruce Christiansen was already in the PPD program for doing the exact same thing. Typoe his name into the NM Courts website and there is a page of charges against him dating back years. He is not married. He has a girlfriend who lives in Arizona and as bad as I feel for her physical ailments...they have NOTHING to do with this crime. I too hope he makes good and repays the people he scammed...but his own family members stood in that court room and mostly told us we were holding our breath as he had scammed them the same as he had us. I don't want to see him die in prison...but I would suggest he start applying for jobs so that he can prove us all wrong and make things right.
