Justice for Sophia
Organized by: Sophia's Friends
Sophia was a victim of domestic abuse. Her boyfriend threatened to kill her and her daughter. He attacked her with a police issued stun gun. She grabbed a knife and stabbed him. He died. She had put up with months of physical and mental abuse from this man. He also mentally abused her 10 yr old daughter. At the time of his death this man also had a restraining order against him for shooting at his ex-wife in front of his children. The police were called out to the house several times. She has bruises from previous beatings and now burn marks from the stun gun on her head and up and down her arm. She is currently incarcerated on manslaughter charges. We are trying to raise money for an attorney for her. She acted in self defense. If she had not stopped him he would have killed her and her daughter that night. Please help us stop domestic violence and stop another battered woman go to jail for defending herself.
