Former Councilwoman Due in Court Next Month
Crystal Evans' case is scheduled to be heard in Winslow Township Municipal Court.
Crystal Evans will get her day in court next month.
The former Gloucester Township councilwoman was arrested in early November 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 bounced back to the municipal court level, Gloucester Township Municipal Court Administrator Patty Carroll said Wednesday. Evans was not indicted.
Evans' case will be heard in Winslow Township due to the potential for a conflict of interest, given her past role as Gloucester Township councilwoman from 2008 through 2011.
Evans is scheduled to appear in Winslow court on Wednesday, March 6, at 10 a.m.
Gloucester Township Police Ptl. Benjamin Lewitt signed single complaints for fourth-degree stalking and non-indictable criminal mischief after police were called to investigate an incident on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Evans, 48, turned herself in to police on 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.
