Federal trial starts today for Delridge shooting, chop-shop suspect

gavel.jpgAt the federal courthouse downtown, trial is scheduled to begin today for DeVaughn Dorsey, charged with a long list of federal crimes including the May 2008 shooting of a mother and her 10-year-old son at their Delridge home. We reported the indictments in January 2009, including the allegation that the 2008 shooting was a case of attempted witness intimidation (both victims survived) in a car theft/”chop shop” case involving multiple locations (one in West Seattle). Starting today, Chief Judge Robert Lasnik presides over Dorsey’s trial; last September, investigators made one last neighborhood sweep – as we noted here – for evidence and witnesses, before going to trial.

    This individual has been involved in 170 cases in the past 20 years. People like this who refuse to change need to be kept in jail, not running the streets looking for more victims.

Sorry, comment time is over.
