For most young people, high school graduation night is a time of pride and celebration. For Robert Rosenkrantz, police believe, it was a night on which his darkest secret was exposed, a time of shame and humiliation. It led to a first-degree murder charge against the 18-year-old Calabasas High School graduate, accused of gunning down a schoolmate who discovered his secret. Investigators theorize that events on Rosenkrantz's graduation night, June 21, drove him to kill 17-year-old Steven Redman.

Concerned that an appeal may extend his client's time in prison, a lawyer for convicted murderer Robert Rosenkrantz said Saturday that he will not challenge a state appeals court ruling ordering a new judge to hear his client's parole case. Gov. Gray Davis had sought the removal of the judge who last September ordered the state parole board to release Rosenkrantz. Davis blocked his parole and Rosenkrantz sued.

A state appeals court Friday upheld a bid by the state attorney general's office to remove a Superior Court judge from hearing the parole case of convicted murderer Robert Rosenkrantz, who killed a Calabasas High School classmate for exposing him as a homosexual.

The California parole board, under court order, was forced to grant Robert Rosenkrantz a release date from prison (June 1). But because of an initiative passed by California voters several years ago, Gov. Gray Davis may once again deny Rosenkrantz his freedom. When the citizens of California gave the governor the absolute power to take the law into his own hands, they created a dictator. The majority who voted for that proposition became the lynch mob. What they did was unbalance the checks and balances we have in our form of democracy.
