Bellingham: Everett firefighter pleads guilty
An Everett firefighter pleaded guilty Thursday to illegally using his fire department vehicle to pull over a Bellingham woman on I-5.
About 10:30 p.m. April 20, Jack C. Robinson, 59, was following a car northbound on I-5 near the Whatcom-Skagit county line when he turned on the emergency lights, causing the other car to pull over, according to Whatcom County District Court documents.
Robinson approached the car, driven by Joyce Gidigbi, 43, and motioned for her to roll down her window before seeing she had a passenger and returning to his car.
When police found Robinson, a loaded gun was in the fire car’s trunk.
Robinson was charged with impersonating an officer and possessing a loaded weapon. He was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and a $250 fine and is retiring on disability from the fire department, said his attorney, Jeffrey Lustick.
Robinson also received a year probation and a deferred sentence, meaning if he commits no violations in a year, the crime will be removed from his record.
