A Superior Court jury on Monday convicted a D.C. teen in the 2010 killing of a Catholic University student fatally shot while bicycling home from work.
A dead teenager is to blame for a shooting that killed a Catholic University student bicycling home from work in 2010 rather than the teen's friend who is on trial for the slaying, the man's defense attorney said Tuesday.
Despite a D.C. law that requires a social worker's license to perform "psychosocial evaluation and assessment, counseling, and consultation" for those who work with youth offenders, only five of more than 30 case managers in the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services possess such a license.
The family of a Catholic University student who was fatally shot while bicycling through the Petworth area in 2010 has dropped the District and its juvenile justice agency from a lawsuit that had accused the city of failing to supervise the 16-year-old murder suspect committed to its custody.
The family of a Catholic University student who was fatally shot while bicycling through Petworth last year has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services, accusing the agency of failing to supervise the 16-year-old murder suspect committed to its custody.
A university student was attacked as he bicycled home after working the evening shift at a waterfront restaurant. A school principal was fatally shot in his bedroom in a Maryland suburb.
"It does raise some questions about how secure these children are while they are in our custody," he said, noting there seemed to be a lack of communication among the officers responsible for those wards. "There's too much Keystone Kop here."
He also noted that DYRS wards have walked away from custody at airports and from One Judiciary Square in recent months.
