Missing woman could be a victim of domestic violence

Authorities are searching for a League City woman after she went missing last week.

According to the police, the missing woman was identified as a 32-year-old Anne-Christine Johnson. She is a mother of two and a cocktail waitress at the Legends in League City. Initial reports say that Johnson was last seen a week ago wearing an overcoat and pink scarf. She was reportedly in a white sedan traveling along Chesterfield Lane with a male companion. The identity of the man was not determined.

On December 8, her father filed a missing report after Johnson did not show up to meet him for dinner. Preliminary investigations show clues that the disappearance of Johnson seems suspicious, suggesting the victim may have been a victim of domestic violence.

Degrees of Separation film could be used as training tool for domestic violence cases

An Australian short film on domestic violence entitled ‘Degrees of Separation’ was aired for the first time at a conference for family law professionals in Brisbane last weekend.

Melbourne barrister Darren Mort funded the $15,000 project himself to explore the situations and circumstances surrounding family violence victims, such as keeping their ordeals a secret and living in denial. Mort, who is also involved in the Victorian Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre, said he hopes his film will make a difference.

Lilia Szarski, a Relationships Australia mediation trainer, said the film demonstrated the compelling need to open a discussion on how to recognise domestic violence “and why do we don’t do anything about it.” Visiting US forensic psychologist Phil Stahl, a member of the US National Judicial College said, “This film can help educate judges both on the secrecy element of domestic violence and the powerfulness of domestic violence,” he said. The film is set to be publicly released next year.

Unfortunately, it is all too common that victims of domestic violence are poorly represented legally. If you are the victim of family violence, the attorneys at BB Law Group PLLC can help. Call us at (832) 534-2589 to consult about your case and see how you can begin taking legal action.

Group organizes flash mob for domestic violence awareness

A flash mob was staged at Market Street in The Woodlands October 13 to “take a stand against domestic violence”.

Organizer Janice Warren, who has close ties to the Montgomery County Women’s Shelter, said October is an optimum time to stage a flash mob dedicated to the cause as October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

She said that according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in four women and their kids will be the victim of domestic violence.

A congressional staff report also stated that domestic violence is the primary cause of injury to women from 15 to 44 years of age.

Part of the exercise to reach out to domestic violence victims is talking about what constitutes domestic violence. According to Warren, this includes not only acts of physical violence but also psychological, sexual, or verbal attacks.

No one should have to tolerate abuse. If you or a loved are being abused by a partner, you need an experienced and compassionate lawyer on your side to protect you and your family. Please give our attorneys at the BB Law Group PLLC in the Woodlands a call at (832) 534-2589 to confidentially discuss your legal options and the possibility of divorce today.
