Magic Valley Crime Beat

A Twin Falls man was sentenced to jail yesterday  for stabbing another man who allegedly caught him braking into a friend’s car.  Forty year old Wesley Firpo was sentenced to ten years in jail but could be out on parole in two years.  Firpo stabbed Christopher Lewis of Twin Falls at the 360 Main St. Bistro and Lounge in downtown Twin Falls.  Lewis was stabbed in the stomach but has since fully recovered.  Firpo must also pay Lewis $18,000 in restitution for hospital bills and lost wages.  Firpo pleaded guilty to aggravated battery with the use of a deadly weapon in January.  A charge of burglary was dismissed. 

A Magic Valley woman will stay out of jail for time for embezzling $100,000 from her employer.  Tina Langdon pleaded guilty late  last year after taking the money over a six year period from John and Diane Johnson, owners of Practical Used Cars in Twin Falls.  Fifth District Judge Randy Stoker decided it would be best to keep Langdon out of prison for now so she could work to pay back the money.  Stoker sentenced Langdon to 14 year in prison but retained jurisdiction over the case for a year.  Langdon must pay back the $100,000 plus interest.
