For Immediate Release
District Attorney Devon Anderson’s call for reform of criminal laws fails to address her own use of current law to jail a young, mentally ill rape victim.
"Harris County rape victims do not need a new law to protect them, they need a new lawyer," said Kim Ogg, crime victims' advocate and candidate for Harris County DA.
Ogg added, "Anderson's finger-pointing and blame-shifting today is exactly the reason why the US Justice Department should conduct an immediate independent investigation. It's clear that key personnel made a terrible decision in this case and the people of Harris County have the right to know who is personally responsible."
Justice, Fairness, Safety. For everyone. Those are my promises.
