the north face sandals Bondsman pleads no contest to bigamy
SUNBURY Aformer Northumberland County bail bondsman accused of bigamy and illegally owning firearms as a convicted felon pleaded no contest to five charges in Northumberland County Court on Thursday.
Christopher Hauptmann, 44, has 332 days of time served in county prison and may only see 30 days more behind bars before serving his minimum sentence of 364 days. Judge Paige Rosini sentenced him to one year minus a day to two years minus a day followed by a combined 11 years of county and state supervision. All other charges are not being processed as part of the plea deal.
“There was an opportunity to give him certainty and closure,” defense attorney Peter Kay said. “That’s why a lot of these plea agreements happen. He’s been sitting a long time in jail.”
Hauptmann is looking forward to “closing this chapter of his life,” Kay said.
incarcerated since Feb. 7 in lieu of $410,000 bail, is accused of being married to his former stepdaughter and his former stepdaughter’s mother at the same time. Hauptmann and his wife and former stepdaughter, Kaylee Hauptmann, are co owners of PA Bail and Recovery in Coal Township. They were married Sept. 16 in Luzerne County less than a month after Kaylee turned 18.
Police say Hauptmann’s real last name is allegedly Buckley. Hauptmann has a felony drug conviction in New Jersey under the Buckley name and is barred from legally possessing firearms.
Rosini told Hauptmann he needs to follow the orders of his parole and probation officers otherwise he would be resentenced to extensive time in prison.
