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The City of Topeka has ‘repealed’ the ban on Domestic Violence so victims no longer have the City of Topeka Court as an option to fall back on.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