Extractions: AP Jayson Williams, shown with wife Tanya, dodged a charge of aggravated manslaughter. E-mail this article Print this article Search archive Most e-mailed articles Those who sat behind Jayson Williams in the courtroom and supported the former New Jersey Nets star felt an urge to cheer as the jury foreman read the verdict that may ultimately set him free. For a moment, they expressed their joy before being silenced and admonished for their actions. Courtroom etiquette frowns on such boorish behavior because in every case involving life and death, there are winners and losers. But what was the point of the pretense? Other than a female juror, who reportedly wept, few others in that room cried for Costas (Gus) Christofi, the limousine driver who was found dead in Williams' master bedroom after suffering a shotgun blast to his chest on Valentine's Day 2002. The Christofi family apparently received their justice two years ago after settling a wrongful death suit and receiving $2.75 million from Williams. As such, most family members stayed away from the trial, allowing Williams and his supporters to shape the story of what happened in the wee hours of the morning on that tragic night.
