If you aren’t caught up: Winter was ordered to reveal who her source was on a story related to the Colorado movie theater shooting. Winter reported that the alleged shooter sent a notebook with violent imagery to his psychiatrist before the attack.
Jana Winter, who is based in New York, had been scheduled to return to court Sept. 30 for a hearing. Now, she is scheduled to return on that date only so that her subpoena can again be postponed — this time to Jan. 3.
The hearing could decide whether Winter will be ordered to testify about her sources for a story she wrote about the case.
If Winter is ordered to testify and she refuses, Judge Carlos Samour wrote in granting the delay on Tuesday, there is “the real possibility that Winter may face indefinite jail time in this case as a remedial sanction for her refusal to disclose her confidential sources.”
