The Region

December 18, 1985

After briefly closing the murder trial of Oleg Pinsky to the public and the media after Pinsky's attorney argued that his client feared that published reports of his testimony would put his life in jeopardy, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William Pounders reversed his order, clearing the way for Pinsky to testify in open court after hearing arguments from attorneys for The Times. Pinsky, 20, a Russian immigrant accused of murdering a male prostitute, already had implicated two other gang members in a tape-recorded interview with police presented earlier in the trial, Pounders said.
