EOB: Wrap Up Duncan Case ASAP — Shasta Attorney

Even if she doesn’t have to testify, the court-appointed advocate for Shasta Groene says in court papers today that it’s in the young girl’s best interest to have all the proceedings in Joseph Duncan’s case wrapped up as soon as possible, so Shasta can grieve, heal, and move on to middle school in the fall. “The sooner this matter is concluded, the sooner she and her family can truly begin the process of grieving and healing that has been postponed now for two and one-half years,” wrote Coeur d’Alene attorney John Sahlin, guardian ad litem for Shasta. You can read his filing here, and my full story here in today’s Spokesman-Review on the deal that spares Shasta from testifying against Duncan in federal court/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.
