Topeka Reinstate Funding for Domestic Violence Law Prosecutions!

Victims of Domestic Violence in Topeka, KS have a better chance of winning the lottery than having the crime of Domestic Violence against them ever being prosecuted. 
Domestic violence remains a problem for the city of Topeka. The Shawnee County Commissioners cut Funding to DA for prosecutions of Domestic Violence Case's, the DA was forced to let the city Courts handle the misdemeanor charge of Domestic Violence.
