DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke, 12/9/13

I’m hanging out at the Army JAG school for a few days, teaching and waiting to hear if I will actually be on the road 2 days or 2 weeks (I could get excited about either, but I’m definitely feeling the pull of being home with my spouse). I could be headed to Hawaii at the end of the week, but that work is up in the air at this moment, so for now I am surrounded by ice and snow in Charlottesville, VA. Not a bad place to be, all things considered. The lousy weather that started yesterday certainly had us home-bound over the weekend, and left plenty of time for napping–and reading. So here’s what’s caught my eye since last we spoke:
