• Cindy Beck Granted Stay Against Homeless Woman


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The wife of Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck today was granted a three-year stay-away order against a homeless woman accused of threatening to kill her.

    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carol Boas Goodson issued the order on behalf of Cindy Beck, who maintained in court papers filed last month that Veronica Roberts called her cell phone numerous times, claiming the police chief was following her and harassing her and that she wanted it to stop.

    “There doesn’t appear to be any reason why the restraining order should not be granted. In fact, it appears appropriate,” Goodson said. “I hope it gets better.”

    A temporary restraining order was issued against Roberts last month that was valid until today. The new order is good through Jan. 9, 2016.

    Cindy Beck was in court today but did not testify. She was escorted to and from the courtroom by a sheriff’s sergeant. She declined to comment after the hearing.

    Roberts did not appear in court.

    The order directs Roberts to stay at least 100 yards from Cindy Beck and her husband. Beck said she reported the calls to the chief, and that detectives concluded the caller was the 43-year-old Roberts.

    Cindy Beck maintained that Roberts called her again last month, screaming and threatening to kill her at her home.

    Roberts was arrested for investigation of stalking and is being held on $200,000 bail.
