Question of the Day
Woman won’t be forced to join NA
FAYETTEVILLE — A woman who sued a judge after he sentenced her to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings won’t be required to participate in the 12-step program that she said forced her to practice a religion, her lawyer said.
Mindy Gayle Offutt, who was sentenced on a misdemeanor drug possession charge last year, filed the suit in federal court against state court Judge Doug Schrantz, who sentenced her to 30 days suspended jail sentence, contingent on her attending 12 Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
But Doug Norwood, Offutt’s attorney, said that as part of a settlement, Judge Schrantz will issue an amended judgment, saying Offutt doesn’t have to attend the 12-step program. A federal judge dismissed Offutt’s lawsuit Monday.
Editor fatally shot in Oakland
OAKLAND — The outspoken new editor of the Oakland Post was fatally shot yesterday near a downtown courthouse in what police think was a deliberate hit.
Chauncey Bailey, who was a reporter for the Oakland Tribune before moving to the Post in June, was killed at about 7:30 a.m., Oakland Police spokesman Roland Holmgren said. He said witnesses told police that a gunman shot Mr. Bailey and then fled.
Mr. Bailey grew up in Oakland and worked with several area media outlets, including KDIA radio and Soul Beat TV, a local cable channel. He wrote for the Tribune for more than 10 years before being named editor of the Post.
