    I posted this thread as I wanted to be pro-active. This story breaks my heart. This is the AG who fought and won our family's case against our children's rapist's Post Conviction Relief trial. I've stood next to this woman as I testified at the Senate Judiciary Committee as we changed the laws on crime victims' rights.

    It hurts. I respected this attorney greatly. She was a dynamo in the courtroom and a wonderful advocate for our children.

    I am very hopeful that she gets the treatment she needs and finds some peace and closure on this horrible event. My heart goes out to her partner.

    It must be very disheartening to find out about violent acts being committed by someone you know & admire -- especially one who's an Assistant AG.

    I wonder if there's more to the story.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
