“The only way she can avoid jail is to step up to the microphone and recant.”
She does so but does the opposite. That’s bravery.
This is hard to watch. I’m just grateful there were some real journalists on the case. The judge, Patricia Donninger, too deserves to be fired for not knowing the law and allowing that to go on.
“For what, sir? Why would I be arrested? Can you please tell me?”
Marshal Jon Fox: his arrest and sexual harassment was just because “no one in the courtroom tried to stop him.” Hearing the terror in the young woman’s voice…oof.
Contreras said Fox touched her buttocks, breast, and ordered her to lift up her shirt. A later internal investigation by Clark County courts validated her claims. Contreras went back into the same courtroom and told hearing master Patricia Donninger that her requests to have a female marshal handle the search were ignored.
Note: the video text itself is ridiculous: many officers are good people truly trying to serve and protect.
“Cop Sexually Assaults Woman, Then Arrests Her For Protesting The Assault.”
