Pendleton Murder Suspect Violated Probation 3 Times

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/02/12/pendleton-murder-suspect-violated-probation-3-times/


The two suspects charged by police for the shooting of Hadiya Pendleton both had criminal records and one of them was on probation at the time of Pendeltonís shooting, reports CBS 2′s Roseanne Tellez.

In fact, CBS 2 has learned he violated that probation three times before her killing.

18 year-old Michael Ward was put on probation after pleading guilty to a weapons charge in January of 2012, when he was still 17.


There is no computer somewhere sends out an alert when someone on probation gets arrested, but probation officers have the job of spotting violations by routinely checking arrest records.

The head of the probation department tells CBS 2′s Roseanne Tellez that archaic computers, big caseloads and fewer officers, make the job extremely challenging.
