    A response to the perspective that the judge was "blaming" the victim.

    The questions posed are only among a hundred more that could be considered. And certainly not all apply to Ms. Tonya Hunter-Lyons. An educated, employed woman, one would think she had the resources and the knowledge to leave an abusive situation. As a marriage counselor, it may even have been the case that Ms. Hunter-Lyons feared professional embarassment. After all, a marriage counselor who is herself in an abusive relationship leads one to believe that if she has not addressed her own issues, how can she help anyone else? An on-looker may retort "of all people, she should have known better". This rhetoric, however, does not obscure the fact that "knowing something" and being able to "do something" are not the same. One may have knowledge but be unable to act upon what they know. Examples are many and varied of situations in which a person may "know" one thing but "act" contrary to that knowledge.
