Andrew Golden, one of two sentenced as juveniles for the 1998 Westside School slaughter, will receive a degree of protection until the trial of a lawsuit filed by victims families.
A judge has ordered that the press not be notified of the time and place of his deposition in the case. He also ruled that attorneys not divulge Golden's new name and whereabouts. Attorney Bobby McDaniel had argued that the public has a right to know if a mass killer lives next door. (Golden, 11 at the time of the crime, was released after serving the maximum then possible for a juvenile killer. His mother says he now lives alone and is in school)
The press will be allowed to cover the eventual trial. That could reveal some of the information now being protected.
