Re Judge Joyce Karlin ("Judge Who Gave Probation in '91 Killing Quits," Feb. 11): I am an attorney at the Juvenile Dependency Court, where I represent abused and neglected children. For the past year I have had the privilege of practicing in Judge Karlin's courtroom. I found her to be professional, hard-working, thorough, intelligent and, most important, compassionate. As a minors attorney, I always appreciated the time Judge Karlin took to speak to the children and to explain her decisions.

A judge Thursday ordered protesters to stay at least 500 feet from the Manhattan Beach home of a jurist who sentenced a Korean-born grocer to probation for killing a black teen-ager last March. The temporary restraining order issued by Judge Ronald Sohigian was served on activists spearheading the drive to oust Joyce Karlin from office. The Compton Superior Court judge sentenced grocer Soon Ja Du, 51, to five years probation in November.

Joyce A. Karlin, the judge whose light sentencing of a Korean-born grocer in the 1991 shooting of a 15-year-old black girl inflamed already simmering racial tensions in Los Angeles, said Monday that she was resigning from the bench. In a written statement, Karlin, 46, now a judge in Juvenile Dependency Court, said she was ending her seven-year judicial career to spend more time with her family.

It's really too bad that Latasha Harlins was not afforded the opportunity to hire a consulting firm to show the injustice that was done to her. Perhaps if Latasha's hairstyle were modified to project the image of a true victim she would have gained more respect as a human being. Joyce Karlin is seriously mistaken if she is under the impression that her outlandish move in the Soon Ja Du case will not affect her chances for election. Not only should she lose support from the black community but also from anyone who is concerned about our justice system and how it can be perverted in the hands of those we entrust with our lives.

A physician from Northridge was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to two years in prison after his conviction for writing prescriptions so that two workers at his medical clinic could obtain drugs to be sold illegally. Dr. William Dupuis, 34, operated a now-closed weight-loss clinic in South Central Los Angeles where women were paid to pose as patients so that they could be given prescriptions for stimulants and painkillers, Asst. U.S. Atty. Joyce Karlin said.

With the charges dropped against five of seven defendants in the McMartin Pre-School molestation prosecution, some child abuse experts are worried that the collapse of the case may have a chilling effect on efforts across the country to fight child abuse.
