Juvenile Judge Catherine Evans called a second hearing to reverse
a decision she made a day earlier. Evans had ordered the supervised release of a
16-year-old girl who led gang members on a murderous three-city shooting spree.
Evans called a second hearing one day later, after the victim's mother held a press conference deriding the pending release. The victim's mother may have learned of the original decision from my questioning her about her thoughts on that decision.
In an apparent attempt to intimidate me -- as the only
reporter who covered and reported on the original decision -- Evans had me called to testify in the second hearing to determine if
I violated juvenile shield laws. A charge that never materialized.
"Judge" Evans later faced her own legal problems, which -- based on my dealings -- did not surprise me.
