There is a woman in Florida who was sent to jail for not testifying against her attacked. Her attacker was her husband. She defied a court order when she didn't show up at his trial.  Advocates say she was scared, and that it happens all the time that a victim doesn't face her abuser in court. They say most judges understand and don't revictimize the victim by punishing her.  Some say a court order is a court order, and if witnesses don't appear in court, criminials get off. That's just the way it is.  So who's right?

Jeanne Gold, attorney, journalist, women's advocate and CEO of SafeHouse in Florida joins Robert Rhodes, Seattle attorney and veteran of numerous trials and intimate partner violence cases, join us to discuss the issue of REVICTIMIZING THE VICTIM: WHEN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SUFFERRERS GET HIT AGAIN BY THE LAW.
