Sounds like the woman would be better served in the psyche ward of Sta ford Hospital or Valley Med!

The thing is that we weren't really arguing. when people are mentally ill they snap any become violent. I went to the court and the judge was very professional and the District Attorney took time to speak to me that was very nice. I'd like to apologize to community. hopefully she will get some help and stabilize.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
