Been in court most of today, as a witness I hasten to add. Back in July I went to pick up at a house and there was a lot of commotion from inside and a child was outside crying. His estranged father had assaulted his mother. A month or two previous she had been badly injured and hospitalized by him. She told me that the guy had been arrested for assaulting her seventeen times but never prosecuted the police don't like to get involved in so called domestics. I gave a statement to the police and because he pleaded not guilty was summoned as a witness; I don’t know as yet what the verdict was.
