Monica Contreras complained that she was subjected not only to illegal search and arrest on fraudulent grounds, she was also treated with unacceptable indifference by the Judge, in front of whom, most of these abuses occurred. Ms. Contreras, a single mother of a 2 year old child in court relating to her divorce, was allegedly subjected to sexual assault under the guise of a "routine search." She asked for a female officer to conduct the search, but was denied. Contreras then went back into the courtroom, presided over by Judge Patricia Donninger, to make a formal complaint about the treatment she received at the hands of the court law enforcement officials. Video tape from that courtroom (available at http://www.thefrisky.com/2013-06-12/court-marshal-allegedly-sexually-assaults-woman-then-arrests-her-for-protesting/ ) clearly shows court marshals threatening her and coercing her to retract her complaint. In spite of her fear Ms. Contreras stood by her complaint on the court room record. All too often citizens without resources are bullied and mistreated without feeling they have the power to change their circumstances. Ms. Contreras spoke for all citizens when she refused to back down and retract her complaint. Judge Donninger disgraced the Court by her blatant indifference to Ms. Contreras and the behavior she witnessed in her courtroom.
