Karpuk had two prior records of discipline. In the more recent of the two, Karpuk was suspended for two years, stayed, and placed on three years of probation with an actual one-year suspension after pleading no contest to misdemeanor theft charges after taking seven CDs from a Fry’s electronics store in 2008.
