A good online resource for Domestic Violence

This site, Women’s Law.org seems to be a good resource for information on Domestic Violence. It evens gives specific states information. I found out that in my state (Utah), there is a difference between getting a protective order and a stalking injunction.

Protective Order – A civil order that provides protection from a current or former dating partner, a member of your household or someone you have a child in common with.

Stalking Injunction – You can file a Stalking Injunction against person who is stalking you even if you have not lived with that person in the past. (the only problem here is that you must have evidence, which is not always possible, especially if the threats were said in person or over the telephone)

The site has a lot of good information. I recommend it

Poll: Have you ever experienced domestic violence?

Since this month’s theme is Domestic Violence, I thought I would add this new feature from WordPress.

48 HOURS MYSTERY EXCLUSIVE – A Boston Doctor Addresses Accusations That He Murdered His Former Girlfriend

“HOW COULD I BE BLAMED FOR SOMETHING AS TERRIBLE AS THIS?” SAYS DR. TIMOTHY STRYKER

IN HIS FIRST NETWORK INTERVIEW ABOUT THE MURDER OF HIS FORMER GIRLFRIEND

A “48 HOURS MYSTERY” EXCLUSIVE ON SATURDAY, OCT. 25

In his first network interview, Dr. Timothy Stryker addresses the accusations of murder that have dogged him for 15 years. “How could I be blamed for something as terrible as this?” he asks in the 48 HOURS MYSTERY exclusive.

In 1993, Dr. Linda Goudey’s body was found in the back seat of her car in the parking lot of the Boston-area hospital where she worked. The beloved OB/GYN had been strangled in an attack so brutal it left injuries at 24 separate places on her body. Immediately, authorities turned to her boyfriend, Dr. Stryker, and his attempts to help their investigation further fueled their suspicions of his involvement. But with only circumstantial evidence, the case went cold.

While authorities may not have had enough for a criminal case, Goudey’s family pressed on and filed a civil suit against Stryker, who was now married with a successful practice. His wife Micael stood by him throughout the trial. In her first interview since the verdict, she says, “[They] wove this amazing fantasy of this imaginary killer. I thought if I was a jury hearing this [it] would be very compelling.” The jurors did find it compelling: Stryker was found responsible of Goudey’s death and her family was awarded $15 million.

Soon after the civil case verdict, a new witness emerged. This was just the break Stryker needed, but to some this new development seemed a little too convenient. The criminal case would take a turn that no one could’ve imagined. Is Dr. Timothy Stryker a calculating murderer or is he an innocent man fighting to clear his name?

Authorities remain committed to bringing Goudey’s killer to justice, especially District Attorney Gerry Leone who, in his first and only interview, pledges, “I’m going to personally stay with this unsolved homicide case as I promised [her] family over a decade ago.”

Correspondent Richard Schlesinger reports on 48 HOURS MYSTERY: “Did The Doctor Kill The Doctor?” Saturday, Oct. 25 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This broadcast is produced by Deborah Grau. Sarah Prior is the field producer. Nancy Kramer is the senior producer and Al Briganti is the executive editor. Susan Zirinsky is the executive producer.
