A story I planned to write fell through the Rod Blagojevich arrest day crack.
Jane Farmer, Executive Director of Turning Point wrote a letter which I’d like to share with you. It follows:
Congratulations on the recent conviction regarding the 911 domestic violence call with (the) Harvard Police Department. Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally did an outstanding job of prosecuting this case.
I am impressed with the work Patrick did as well as your stand on holding domestic violence perpetrators accountable for their actions.
This certainly proves once again that evidence based prosecution not only can work, it truly does work.
As you well know, domestic violence cases are difficult to handle, often having a victim recant or flee based on fear or lack of options.
This was an amazing case and will help keep our county that much safer.
Thank you again for the work you and your staff do and I applaud your office’s efforts to continue assisting Turning Point in our mission to “Confront Violence Against Women and Children in McHenry County.”
