I have had the privilege to work with Assistant District Attorney Richard Sullivan for almost 19 years as the victim/witness coordinator. I have assisted Mr. Sullivan on hundreds of cases from domestic violence to child and adult sexual assault cases...

Your Views: Will Trump be handing out the Kool-Aid when he fails?
