Reader asks: Why the gaps in no-contact orders?

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

The brutal death of a young woman (allegedly) by Victor Acuna-Sanchez has pointed to the gaps in the law enforcement and judicial systems here in Carroll County. The judge in the case released this man on his own recognizance without bail, in spite of a series of arrests and no-contact orders for domestic violence immediately preceding his last arrest.

What will it take to shake the system out of complacency on these issues?

The branches of local government need to immediately work together to bring this to a stop!

Why was the prosecutor's office not keeping the system up to date on what had taken place?
