This video is highly disturbing, but it shows how victims of sexual assault are habitually ignored, shamed, and punished for reporting assault.
Wear a white feather and vow that you will never do any of these things to a person reporting sexual assault and/or rape.
Thankfully, albeit two years later, the judge and marshall have been fired. The marshall should be tried for sexual assault and the judge for accomplice after the fact, but losing their jobs and shaming them are a start.
The family court hearing master that allowed two court marshals to abuse, degrade and sexually assault a woman that was in court for a divorce matter was quietly fired last week.
Patricia Doninger is no longer employed by Clark County Courts after an alleged investigation into the August 11 incident in her court, during which she turned her back on a disgusting situation to play with the victim’s underage daughter. Doninger heartlessly ignored the young mother’s plea for help while two Clark County Court Marshalls tortured, groped and viciously attacked the Hispanic woman that was in court for a routine divorce case.
A court video of the incident was obtained by Las Vegas Tribune, and after reviewing it for several days, the newspaper was ready to begin a campaign to demand Hearing Master Patricia Doninger’s termination – but that is no longer necessary.
Doninger was clearly seen on the video playing with the woman’s daughter and ignoring the woman’s cries that the marshal was assaulting her right under her nose, under the guise of searching for drugs.
