Guest: Andrew King-Ries, JD, Professor of Criminal Law, University of Montana, former state prosecutor It takes a lot of courage for victims of domestic violence to speak out against their abusers, so when a perpetrator is successfully prosecuted, it’s a victory. At least that’s what former prosecutor Andrew King-Ries used to believe. But he had one victim tell him he had ruined her life when her abusive boyfriend was locked up. What more was he, as a prosecutor, supposed to do? King-Ries has come to believe the justice system could be doing a lot more for victims of domestic violence.
