Court Hearing for Former Gloucester Twp. Councilwoman Postponed
Crystal Evans was scheduled to appear in Municipal Court in Winslow on Wednesday after being charged late last year with stalking and criminal mischief.
Former township Councilwoman Crystal Evans didn't get her day in court Wednesday.
Her hearing in Winslow Municipal Court was postponed.
No new date has been set. Court Administrator Janice Fitting was unsure of the reason for the postponement.
Evans, a Democrat, was arrested in November 2012 on charges alleging she harassed and frightened a township woman throughout 2012.
The case was reviewed at the Superior Court level, due to the initial indictable stalking charge police filed against Evans, but ultimately was remanded to the municipal court level without being presented to a grand jury.
Evans' case is being heard in Winslow due to the potential for a conflict of interest, given her past role as Gloucester Township councilwoman from 2008 through 2011.
Gloucester Township Police Ptl. Benjamin Lewitt signed single complaints against Evans for stalking and criminal mischief after police were called to investigate an incident on Nov. 7, 2012.
Evans, 48, turned herself in to police Nov. 8.
The stalking complaint signed by Lewitt alleged Evans "placed several hundred telephone calls to the victim with the purpose to harass and put fear into the victim" in 2012. It also states Evans was seen "on or near the victim's residence unannounced and uninvited."
The criminal mischief complaint claims Evans caused less than $500 in damage to the gutter downspouts to the victim's home.
The complaints identify the victim as Angela Deluca, who reportedly was living with Evans' brother-in-law at the time.
Due to the nature of the incident that led to Crystal Evans' arrest, police were unwilling to divulge a location of the alleged crime.
