The system has been failing the people all these years without nothing being done. A young lady who tried to save her mother from being abused by a boyfriend they lived with. Hit the guy with an object and later called the police hoping that the man will be arrested for assaulting her mother in front of her.

Little did she know that she will be the one getting arrested for telling the truth to the police. "I thought that all I had to do was to tell the truth and they would see that this man was abusing me and my mom," LaTonya says at that time she was only twelve years old.

LaTonya spent nine months in custody and this proved to be an important turning point for her. After her release, she landed a job at the public defender's office, which provides legal representation to those who cannot otherwise afford it.
