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.

We love you and support you Councilman. Everyone at the salon is behind you. We know that you have been through a lot since you have served on council and we have seen how you have stood strong.

Sean, first of all I have no intentions of making a comment on Ms. Evans. That being said I am curious as to what made you come to this decision to censor or review comments about a former councilwoman on this issue. There have been a few people who constantly make baseless, slanderous, horrendous comments and accusations about a sitting Mayor and Council on a daily basis and yet you have not censored those comments. Just wondering what made you come to this decision, seems a little unbalanced. Just wondering and thank you in advance for you response.

As I stated above, the comments on the November article got quite inappropriate. It went beyond the typical baseless "corrupt politician" accusations you appear to be alluding to above. And it went both ways--purported GT Dems making unfounded accusations against Mrs. Evans and purported supporters of Mrs. Evans making baseless accusations against GT Dems. I'd prefer not to have a repeat here. Hence my decision to put comments on "needs approval." Not for nothing, but we have pulled down plenty of inappropriate comments directed at Dems over the 2+ years the site's existed. To go into detail publicly would defeat the purpose of pulling those comments down, so I won't. Also, we decided to put comments on the Moriarty DWI articles on "needs approval," too.

Just keeping doing what you are doing Sean ........ I love how all the FAKE ones like Susan Greene cry Foul but they have no shame in attacking anyone and throwing out their LIES ....SMH ............Hey Greene you are a meanie

I thought comments were always subject to approval. It doesn't hurt to remind us every once in a while, because some of the things said here are out of line.
Susan Greene February 21, 2013 at 03:13 PM
Gladden, You just couldn't help yourself could you. Had to start right in with the name calling and you wonder why people respond to you. Because you love the attention. So don't cry baby when people respond to you. You are clueless as to what I am saying to Sean, actually your clueless to pretty much everything that goes on in Twp. I said I would not post anything negative about Ms. Evan's and you attack ? Just shows your classless. Grow up cry baby

Sean. Who gives a crap. Why did you do this article really. Then put an article on the newly purchased councilwoman directly below. Get your head from under that mans kilt. Your bias is starting to eke out.
Sybil Evans February 22, 2013 at 03:39 AM
relax crystal it's news if you don't want the headlines don't commit the crime
telepathy February 22, 2013 at 05:12 AM
Sorrie Sybil. I'm not Crystal. But you will know of me. Don't stress to guess. If you read my historical posts on several topics on this site you would realize my verbiage is not the same as hers. But...In time all things will be revealed. In time.

Is anyone going to work on , discuss the bigger issues. We need to clean up this town and move out all the fraud and crime. We need new judges.
Sybil Evans February 22, 2013 at 02:14 PM
Thank god because I was having trouble sleeping wondering who you were today. Besides telepathy if you really are clairvoyant you should have known your really to irrelevant for me to be talking too. My post was actually directed to “Crystal.” That’s why it was addressed “Relax Crystal.” One would think even a poor clairvoyant could comprehend what they read.

Grow up Sybil . Stop Hating.
Sexy sweet thing February 22, 2013 at 07:18 PM
Grow up Sybil
telepathy February 22, 2013 at 09:54 PM
Sybil you are so disrespectful I read what you wrote not knowing I needed to in your presence to understand what you said pull your skirt down okay
telepathy February 22, 2013 at 09:56 PM
PS Sybil...whats that red stuff around your neck
Sybil Evans February 23, 2013 at 12:06 AM
Wanna try that again in English this time?
Sybil Evans February 23, 2013 at 01:11 AM
not sure what that means be more descriptive.
Susan Greene February 23, 2013 at 09:57 PM
I read your historical posts and you said in November you were not going to post anymore, guess you just couldn't help yourself when this article was posted. This is not about Sybil, it's about Citizen Evans and how any comments about her would be approved by Patch Staff. I have a problem with that statement from Patch. Ms. Evans is no longer a Councilwoman, she is a citizen just like the rest of the residents and needs no courtesy afforded to her different from any other resident. I read about residents committing alleged crimes and their is a free for all on comments as long as they abide by the Patch's rules. That being said then why wasn't you post about "The newly purchased Councilwoman" reviewed by Patch staff. I think that was more than a little out of line comment by you, and baseless. But maybe Patch was so busy making sure that nothing to negative was said about Citizen Evans, it just happened to slip by them. In my opinion, Patch, you should have taken this comment down about a true Councilwoman who hasn't had the opportunity to sit on Dias yet. Unbalanced in my opinion,

ON my way to support Crystal Evans in her trial today for stalking and vandalism as well as many other things that she was charged with. innocent until proven or pleading guilty right? Wonder if the news media will be there? Now that Sean is gone I wonder if anyone will even cover this story for us since its not important to Haddonfield or Collingswood.
Big Daddy 1 March 06, 2013 at 05:46 PM
I would be interested in both sides to this story. I hope Patch covers the trial.
Darren Gladden March 06, 2013 at 08:11 PM
HEY Patch so what HAPPEN ........
Susan Greene March 07, 2013 at 03:11 AM
Yeah Patch, What did happen, I heard Ms. Evan's court hearing was postponed? Is that true?
