Abused women suffer a singular psychology that makes it impossible for them to step forward and participate in the social and legal processes society has put in place. It is a tragic irony that Molly Bowers Midyette had to be incarcerated before she found the safety she needed to speak out. Molly’s parents and her new lawyers have worked constantly to progress steadily through a slow legal system to obtain a motion for a hearing that would bring new information to bear on the circumstances of Molly’s initial trial. Stan Garnett, the Boulder District Attorney, indicated publicly his support for this process, but now has tried to have the hearing stopped. Mr. Garnett needs to honor his original position and not prevent Molly from obtaining the justice she deserves within our legal system.
