Meet Christian Paetsch - husband, father, music teacher, and alleged bank robber.
Paetsch, 45-years-old, is accused of donning a bee-keeper’s mesh and robbing and Wells Fargo bank in Aurora, Colo. He allegedly made off with cash tagged with a GPS device. Police say they cornered him in a roadblock and found all the incriminating evidence they needed in his SUV.
A federal magistrate made a rare exception and granted him bail, even though he allegedly forced several people to the floor of a bank with a semi-automatic pistol.
His lawyer said he will plead not guilty. His friends and family seem shocked he could ever be involved in such a thing. He has no criminal record, no history of drug or alcohol abuse, no known mental illness.
He faces 32 years in prison. Click here to read my column on Marketwatch.
