Fourth reluctant witness jailed in Sacramento gang shooting trial - Sacramento News - Local and Breaking Sacramento News | Sacramento Bee: "Judge Michael A. Savage upped the number on Friday on a request from a defense lawyer who has now obtained three such holding orders. A fourth jailed witness was locked up on the request of the prosecution. None of the witnesses, two of whom are juveniles, has any other charges pending. All are being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
'It's outrageous,' said local defense attorney C. Emmett Mahle, who is representing one of the four. 'There should be a better way of going about this. They're forfeiting my client's liberty and he hasn't done anything wrong.'
The jailings have taken place in the upcoming gang-related murder trial of Marvel Montreal Barksdale, 17, who is being tried as an adult in the Aug. 22, 2008, shooting death of Robert Haynes, 16, at a Meadowview house party.
Barksdale's lawyer, Chris Cosca, said he requested the three witnesses be detained because 'all of them were present at the scene of this shooting, all of them have important facts to share that the jury needs to hear about the shooting and who was shooting first, and all of them have failed to appear as ordered by the court.'"
