    If we got his mom a job at that bank, this wouldn't have happened.

    Too bad. Always liked Bobby. The jail sentence is pretty light, so hopefully he can quickly get back on his feet.

    What's the cutoff for jailing bank employees? Steal $10 million or less=jail, more than $10 million=continued employment.

    Once you pass that threshold they simply become "transactions".

    A theft like this, he had to know he was going to get caught. He's either dumb, or felt the punishment was worth paying off whatever was owed. Maybe a bit of both.

    Seems like people who do these things have some kind of misguided belief that they will magically be able to return the money before anyone notices.

    Sometimes good people just get into a situation where the stress or pressure causes them to act irrationally and do things they normally wouldn't even consider. I hope this is the case with Bobby who has always seemed to be a good guy.

    Worst thing about this is that in addition to the legal fees and time spent he has pretty much eliminated the possibility of getting a job in the future that involves anything to do with handling money or other valuable assets. He just made his future much harder.

    Guy came to our house party when he was a freshman, and tried to steal a flashlight from us. Seriously. He bragged about it to one of the basketball players that was there, not knowing that he was our roommate. (I know, cool story brah).

    Played on the same HS team as Purify (although he was on c-squad while I was on varisty). Not a proud moment for us Palmer alumns. Although we still have Reggie Jackson (Pistons PG) and Elvira!

    Anybody who has ever worked as a teller will tell you that it's virtually impossible to get away with stealing money that way. The controls in place are so stringent that any discrepancy, even for a penny, gets caught almost immediately. In my earlier days, I was a vault teller. I handled hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash every day. Everything is under dual control, nobody is able to be a "lone wolf". You try something like this and you WILL be caught.

    Very disappointed in Bobby. I expected better from him. Maybe that's not fair, but it's true.

    That's the thing. BP seems like a good guy with a big heart who got desperate. He knew that he wasn't likely to get away with it. He couldn't not know that. I hope he learns from this, pays his penalty, and that he then makes the most out of someone giving him a second chance.

    I liked Purify as a player so hearing about his boneheaded attempt at becoming a criminal is disappointing.:wtf: Hearing about the flashlight theft makes me think we all need to attribute his actions to the fact that he went to high school in the Springs. I mean really doesn't this just show us you can take a guy out of the Springs, but you can't take the Springs out of the guy? :popcorn:

    Wow, $12,000 theft and 2 days in jail! The defense attorney is the real MVP here!

    No priors and paid it back with penalty. Does quite a bit of community service and is a famous Buff being tried locally, so probably had some good character witnesses. But, yeah, it looked like they got him for the charge that's for up to $5k instead of nailing him for a bigger charge.

    No sense treating him like a multi-time felon.

    And he will suffer a lot more than a few more days or even weeks of jail would do.

    He was working in the banking industry, now nobody is likely to touch him for any job involving trust and money. He will have to re-invent his career and explain it as he goes.

    Being famous may be a double edged sword here. Being an ex-Buff may help him with some contacts who can help him get re-started but it also means that a lot more people will remember and the charge will stick to him unlike it would with someone who was relatively unknown.

    Well clearly he's not a guy with a huge record, but at the same time, stealing 12 grand (even if you plead to only stealing something like 7 grand) seems like it'd be worth more than 48 hours in jail and 48 hours community service. I'm not saying months in the pen, but at the very least, up the community service to something like 200 hours. But hey, that's just me.

    He is also going to be doing some community service and two years probation. With a felony level charge it will likely be supervised.
