Sirens & Gavels

Courthouse watch: 7.31.09

A man who eluded federal authorities for nearly a month was captured today after U.S Marshals tracked his muddy footprints in northeast Spokane County.

Anthony E. Burke, 21, served time in federal prison for possessing ammunition when history of commitment at a mental hospital prohibited him from doing so.

Court papers filed as part of his federal conviction portray Burke, alias Anthony Garver, as a troubled young man haunted by his step-father’s abuse and angry at authorities for calling him mentally ill.

Burke appeared in federal court today. Read my story here.
