Vernetta’s storywill be featured on Nightline on Thursday, March 18 at 11:35 EDT: “When Restraining Orders Cannot Stop a Killer.” One of the issues the piece addresses is the effectiveness of GPS monitoring.
Her story was the most significant of 2009 for me. RitaAnita Linger, the former director of the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence, told me about the litigation abuse Vernetta had experienced. The injustices Vernetta experienced were so horrendous that Oprah invested in an investigative journalism piece in her August, 2009 issue of O Magazine. On her web site, Oprah now has a list of resources available to people experiencing domestic violence including links to Vernetta’s story.
Bravo, Vernetta! And, thank you, RitaAnita Linger.
