Judge who granted house arrest to woman accused of pushing elderly man off bus receives threats

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A judge who was part of a controversial decision to give a homicide suspect on house arrest is now receiving threats.  The colleagues of Judge Jeannie Hua fear for her safety.

Judge Hua granted house arrest to Cadesha Bishop, the woman accused of pushing an elderly man out of an RTC bus, which police say led to his death.
Thursday was supposed to be Bishop’s preliminary hearing, which determines if there’s enough evidence to send the case to trial, but it was continued to a later date.

However, the focus of the hearing quickly turned to Judge Karen Bennett-Haron, who was presiding over the hearing, and she wanted to clear the air regarding the criticism surrounding her fellow judge, Jeannie Hua.
