Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) acted on instinct when she found him beating on her child. She did what any mother would do — she attacked right back!
Christine Slips Up!
Of course, this is not the way the DA sees it. (Or maybe she does if she has a soul, but she also has a job.)
Christine (a victim of abuse and attacked herself by the very defense attorney she is up against) asks questions every abused woman dreads.
Why were the police not called the first time JT hit her? Why did she not get a restraining order? And, why did Vicky keep the abuse a secret from her family?
Christine’s (Lauralee Bell) counter-arguments will be damaging, but does she go too far? Attacking an abuse victim sometimes pays off, sure, but may not end well in this case. Especially when it comes out she was the one who brought JT to town in the first place!
