Topeka, KS: Domestic Violence Prosecutions Need to Be Funded Now!!!

This is WHY Topeka Kansas ‘Decriminalized Domestic Violence” within the City. LACK OF FUNDING!  We Demand that Funding be restored so that Domestic Violence will be Prosecuted in Topeka, Kansas.

Domestic Violence Victims Need Justice Now!

The Shawnee County Commission needs to make the ‘Safety’ of Domestic Violence Victims a ‘priority’ and get adequate funding in place for the prosecution of Domestic Violence case’s and seek Justice for Victims.

The BOTTOM LINE:

The District Attorney’s Office is underfunded, under staffed (unlike the City of Topeka) and still only the most severe crimes will ever make it to trial with most pleading out to avoid cost of trial.

Domestic Violence Cases – will remain completely without consequence to batterers. At best they will be plead out to 1.) disorderly conduct or 2.) destruction of personal property. To get them out of the system quickly so that what remaining resources can be used for higher level crimes of felony.

The City of Topeka has ‘repealed’ the ban on Domestic Violence so victims no longer have the City of Topeka Court as an option to fall back on.

Currently, Domestic Violence Victims now have a better chance of winning the lottery, than having the crimes committed against them ever be prosecuted and Justice still remains denied.

We strongly urge the Shawnee County Commissioners: Shelly Buhler, Ted Ensley and Mary M. Thomas to make ‘Safety’ a priority and act swiftly to provide adequate funding for all crimes, especially the crime of Domestic Violence in Topeka, KS.

Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas: Domestic Violence Victims Need Justice Now!

The Shawnee County Commission needs to make the ‘Safety’ of Domestic Violence Victims a ‘priority’ and get adequate funding in place for the prosecution of Domestic Violence case’s and seek Justice for Victims.

1. Shawnee County Commissioners Cut the District Attorney’s office funding by 10%. (After there was a request for an increase due to the high crime rate).

2. Shawnee County District Attorney as a result of the Budget Cuts was forced to place all Misdemeanors including Domestic Violence charges on the City of Topeka Court.

3. The City of Topeka, did not want to pay to do ‘Domestic Violence’ cases (Although quite capable)

4. The Topeka City Council, City Manager and Mayor then caused a national outrage by ‘Decriminalizing Domestic Violence’ and repealing the ban on Domestic Violence within the city limits so that they would not be jurisdiction. http://bit.ly/rgk8TL

5. Thereby forcing the Shawnee County District Attorney to ‘review’ the Domestic Violence Cases, as a State law.

6. Since the City of Topeka, ‘Decriminalized’ Domestic Violence, the Shawnee County District Attorney of course is now forced to review these cases. (Although the DA’s Office does not have sufficient funding and in fact suffered a 10% budget cut)

7. The Shawnee County Commissioner’s still have not provided adequate funding for District Attorney.

8. District Attorney is now forced to lay off 17% of his staff effective December 23, 2011. http://bit.ly/ogHoer

The BOTTOM LINE:

The District Attorney’s Office is underfunded, under staffed (unlike the City of Topeka) and still only the most severe crimes will ever make it to trial with most pleading out to avoid cost of trial.

Domestic Violence Cases – will remain completely without consequence to batterers. At best they will be plead out to 1.) disorderly conduct or 2.) destruction of personal property. To get them out of the system quickly so that what remaining resources can be used for higher level crimes of felony.

Topeka domestic abuse survivor trembling over DA’s decision to pass down misdemeanors

In domestic law on September 16, 2011 at 4:17 pm

PLEASE COMMENT ON ORIGINAL ARTICLE! We need OUTRAGE to stop this political game playing at the expense of women. Right now in Topeka Kansas—DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is LEGAL. Since last week’s decision of the County DA to stop prosecuting Domestic Violence in the city limits, there have been 35 Domestic Violence arrests that have WALKED with no charges!
The City manager is considering a repeal in the City Ordinances that Domestic Violence is NOT A CRIME within the city. http://bit.ly/nCxc5M

rowbar, it was a misdemeanor. I’ve had both my wrist broken and it was a misdemeanor.”
When Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor decided to hand over misdemeanor cases, like Dombrowski’s, to the city, she knew it would weigh heaviest on victims of domestic violence. Knowing the consequences a victim could face when the abuser is arrested, then released, she advises victims not to call the police. She says, “You, as a survivor, know how to survive. You just keep surviving. If you call the police right now, and God forbid you end up with the city, you might die.”
Dombrowski says she’s disgusted at how poorly survivors are treated after making the terrifying decision to call authorities. She says community leaders see it as, “Let’s put these victims in with weed control and dog at large and parking tickets. That’s how important you are to our community.”
Dombrowski says the word “misdemeanor” has such a harmless connotation and wishes people knew the horrible actions hiding behind it. She says, “I was pushed through plate glass windows and if I had not been in a relationship with this man, he would be in prison.”
If the city does decide to take on the domestic abuse cases, Dombrowski hopes it’s only until funding can be restored at the District Attorney’s office. She says, “We’ve just jumped back 30 years into the dark ages, and it’s very dark. The lights just went out in Topeka.”
She says many times the misdemeanor charges get reduced to disorderly conduct and destruction of personal property, and she can’t imagine how easy the abusers will have it in city courts. Dowbrowski says you can help domestic violence victims of Topeka by demanding more money for the District Attorney’s office, so they can continue to protect the public.

UPDATE:
Wednesday morning, Topeka Interim City Manager Dan Stanley said there is some thought being given to repealing the city ordinances to force the prosecution back on the county. He says it will then be up to the D.A. to prioritize what cases should be prosecuted.
Stanley says he’s concerned about what will happen to the individuals whose cases are not being prosecuted. He says, “We know of three cases where judges have released the people accused of domestic violence back out because it their understanding that the district attorney will not prosecute and so there may be more of these.”
Topeka Police Officers are forwarding misdemeanor cases involving domestic violence to the District Attorney’s Office. Stanley says the D.A.’s office has already turned away 30 cases. He believes the  victims and their families are most affected.

16 years after enduring constant physical abuse, the memories still shake Claudine Dombrowski to the core. She says, “I was beaten with a c

The Lights Went Out in Topeka for Victims of Domestic Violence: Claudine Dombrowski Speaks Out When Shawnee County, KS District Attorney Chad Taylor decided to hand over misdemeanor cases, like Claudine Dombrowski's, to the city, she knew the consequences would be the hardest on victims of domestic violence.  Dombrowski, a victim of violence for 16 years, who ultimately lost the right to custody or visitation with her daughter through years of wrangling in court, speaks from a position of experience and first hand knowledge.

JUDICIAL ABUSE

In domestic law on August 4, 2011 at 12:24 pm
Amplify’d from jilldykes.blogspot.com
Introduction

Judicial abuse occurs when the effects of law itself are damaging to the person access to justice. In the most severe forms, Judicial abuse often occurs involving the most vulnerable members of our world: Children.

For some time, judicial abuse has occurred across systems and mostly against mothers and children. Considering that it was not that long ago that both women and children were seen and not heard, just as things were improving it seemed as though humanity was finally valuing each and every prescious human life.

Out in the public, such things would and do cause enough outrage for a sense of “natural justice”. Away from the public eye, these human rights atrocities occur almost unseen and unheard like a thief in the night.

Secrecy

There are laws that prevent survivors from speaking out about their experiences. Whilst it is “for the children”, children are not allowed to speak about the proceedings either. The media have written too few articles on the family court. To bring the case to the media, participants must seek permission from the court itself or face imprisonment.

Controversially, fathers rights groups were allowed to heavily voice their stories of “no contact”, “falsely accused of child abuse and domestic violence” and few were allowed to challenge that except in utilizing generalist terms and evidence based research. We are aware that most of these stories are not the case at all but are withheld by law to bring the public the truth.

Family Court

In the process of seeking more time with children and promoting what appears to be the most noble cause, has entrenched the rights of mothers and children in their ability to seek safety from violence.

Heads have been quoted in the media for stating that “family violence is our core business”. The propaganda that is spread about the voices of children and their access to justice promotes the profitability in manufacturing child abuse and domestic violence. They can do something about it, but it is not within their best economical advantage to do so.

This will continue until something is done.
