The capacity hearing this afternoon for Semaj Booker has been continued until mid-September.

Officials were waiting for a report from a man who evaluated Semaj last week, reports our reporter Sean Robinson.

The 11-year-old Semaj, who first made headlines for stealing a car, leading officers on a chase and then making it through Sea-Tac Airport security, is now accused of residential burglary.

The capacity hearing is to determine whether Semaj knew right from wrong when he broke into a Tacoma apartment last month.

Here’s The News Tribune’s most recent story about Semaj’s (and his mother’s) troubles.
