CourtWatch began in order to involve citizens in monitoring the courts to assure that perpetrators of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse are held accountable and that victims are not re-victimized by the court system. We are a volunteer organization that covers Orange & Seminole Counties, Florida. We focus on criminal and domestic violence injunction hearings.
In 1996, I became a survivor of domestic violence. My 2-yr old daughter, Sarah, was murdered by her father, who subsequently committed suicide. At the time, I vowed that my loss would not be in vain. It's my fervent desire to help victims of family violence and sexual assault (as well as their children) be safe.
