"He says the newspaper had reported the juvenile suspects' and he feared the victim's name would be published."
That doesn't make sense. The media agreed that they would not publish the name of the victim. When adults are charged with horrific crimes like this, their hearings are not held in secret out of fear that the victim's name will be leaked, so why the double standard?
If they were old enough to do this crime, there is no reason to protect their identities. Let the world know the truth and see justice in action.

The media already violated the courts order by publishing the juveniles name so the judge did the right thing to protect the victims identity.
