Baltimore County, Md. – In late 2002, John Allen Muhammad and his youthful accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, had the DC metro area in their rifle scopes, terrifying the metro area. When the sniping finally stopped, 10 people had been killed and the lives of many others had been altered forever.
Mildred Muhammad, the former wife of John Muhammad, was also a victim. Yet, the full extent of her victimization would not be known until her book, “Scared Silent,” was published in October 2009.
“Many times the victim is not included in the equation when we discuss the Criminal Justice System in this country. Mildred Muhammad speaks eloquently about her navigation through the system and how she emerged as a survivor,” notes Linda Fleischer, CCBC Criminal Justice department chairwoman, who arranged for this timely program.
The School of Justice at the Community College of Baltimore County brings Mildred Muhammad to CCBC as part of Justice Month 2010.
Presentations, book signings and receptions will be held Thursday, April 29:
B Building Theatre
CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Boulevard
Q Building Theatre
CCBC Catonsville, 800 South Rolling Road.
Both events are free and open to the community. (No tickets are needed.)
For additional information, call 443-840-4668.
