While in the county jail waiting on the disposition of that case, Rokita allegedly tried to hire a fellow-inmate to kill his mother.
While the jailbird would presumably be the key witness in that case, he wasn't the one Rokita allegedly scared off. Court papers identified the allegedly reluctant witness as Janine Hense and said Rokita "communicated" with her in such a manner as to "produce mental anguish or emotional distress."
The criminal complaint against Rokita also said he asked Hense not to testify and "induced" her "to conceal herself."
Hense was not charged with allegedly concealing herself.
