Canine companions in the courtroom
Concord Monitor January 24. 2022
Amanda Grady-Sexton, Director of Public Affairs for New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, said she feels that the imbalance of the interests of crime victims against the rights of the accused in New Hampshire’s justice system regularly results in re-traumatization. She said that “if the goal of a criminal trial is to seek truth and determine the accused’s innocence or guilt, the New Hampshire legislature should support evidence-based efforts that help victims and witnesses provide clear and coherent testimony, including the use of a discreet service animal in the courtroom.”
