Florida DV victim sentenced to jail for refusing to testify

Domestic abuse victim who was berated and jailed by a Florida Judge made her first public statement Saturday.


.Excerpt ~

She had ignored a subpoena to testify during a two-week trial, according to records obtained by the Daily News.
The woman told the judge she had been suffering from depression and anxiety since April when the father of her child, Myles Maynard Brennan, allegedly attacked and threatened her with a kitchen knife.
"You think you're going to have anxiety now? You haven't even seen anxiety," an unmoved Collins says before issuing her decision.

The woman apologizes again, telling the judge through tears that she's homeless and "not in a good place right now."
"And violating your court order did not do anything for you," Collins said. "I find you in contempt of court. I hereby sentence you to three days in the county jail."
A Florida county judge berated a domestic violence victim and then sentenced the sobbing woman to jail, video shows.

Excerpt ~
The traumatized woman admitted she was wrong but said "it seemed easier to go to jail than to testify against him," according to NBC. She now thinks twice before alerting authorities for help.
"I broke the law and she has every right to do her job," she said. "I'm just taking it one day at a time, and there's good days and bad days. I think after everything that's happened I would most likely not call the police at all."

The State Attorney's office said in a statement Collins "will not comment on this matter."

"Florida's Code of Judicial Conduct prohibits judges from commenting on 'pending or impending' cases," the statement said. "Therefore, it would be inappropriate for any judge to comment on a case that could be subject to appeal. "

"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home." (Tecumseh).

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
