Part 2: Stearns County Domestic Violence Felony Court: Keeping Victims Safe / 10 July 2013

Presented By: BWJP

Date: Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm Central Time
Location: Your Desk

In 2009 The Stearns County Domestic Violence Partnership opened the nation’s first repeat felony domestic violence court. Stearns County Attorney Janelle Kendall will co-present with partners in two webinars to describe this court’s development and discuss how the partners collaborate to achieve offender accountability and victim safety.

Presenters: Janelle Kendall, Stearns County Attorney, Ann Cofell, Deputy Director, Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid, and Kim Salitros, an advocate from Anna Marie’s Alliance. 

Description: While offenders are identified as appropriate for the Domestic Violence Felony Court, victims have access to community based victim services, victim assistance available through the county attorney, and a legal aid attorney. The Stearns County Domestic Violence partnership includes legal aid services to provide civil legal services for victims and their children. Janelle Kendall will explain why these services are such an important component in the operation of the court. Co-presenters will discuss what they provide to victims and how these services have increased the safety and well-being of victims.
