YOU ARE HERE: LAT HomeCollectionsSentencing

Judge Joyce Karlin

January 27, 1992

I just completed reading Al Martinez's column, "A Ghost That Won't Go Away" (Jan. 16), pertaining to the killing of Latasha Harlins by Soon Ja Du last March.

He is absolutely right; the ghost is not going away and neither am I. There are not enough words in the English language to properly relate my outrage over the sentencing of Soon Ja Du by Judge Karlin. A $500 fine, 400 hours of community service and probation for killing another human being is an affront not only to our judicial system, but also to Latasha Harlin's family.

Du has silenced the voice of Latasha and Judge Karlin feels by her sentencing the case is closed, but I assure you, it is far from over. My signature will be counted with those who are attempting to right a wrong by relieving Judge Karlin of her seat on the bench.
