Survivor's Experiences

RECEIVED Tue., June 23, 2020

Dear Editor,
    As a victim advocate, thank you for your coverage of one survivor's horrific court experience in "A Question of Compassion for Travis County's Family Violence Court." [News, June 19] This story represents all too many survivor's experiences with the justice system and I am grateful to know that one of the current Family Violence Court judge candidates deems it appropriate to use a survivor's previous trauma history to discount them in court. Survivors deserve better.
