Wife of judge attacked and shot outside home talks to Fox 2 Sunday

Federal judge Terrence Berg was shot Thursday night as he was taking garbage cans from the street to his garage.

Police say two men approached him and demanded to be let inside, but Berg said no and was shot right above his knee. 

Fox 2's Amy Lange sat down with his wife Anita Servier Sunday. 

"It's a process and he's got a ways to go but his mind is perfectly healthy and he's ready to move on with the trials he has scheduled so - we'll see," said Servier, Berg's wife.  

On Monday, the judge will undergo another surgery, yet it is not clear how many more he will need.

"One doctor said no more running, he's a marathoner but he said - we'll see," said Berg's wife.

Servier and the couple's teenager son were inside their home when the incident happened.  

"I wish nobody had to go through this but it happened but I can't waste any more time being angry," said Servier.

Instead of being mad, she decided to be productive and encouraging others to follow suit. As an education worker, Servier is convinced that education is the key to prevent violence. She is trying to send a message to the community.

"Support your local school - support education -it's a way to get kids not to feel hopeless and I'm assuming these two young men felt hopeless because you don't do this if you have a purpose in life - this is not what we're called to do and I know that's not what they were raised to do."
