An Omaha woman who was brutally beaten by her ex-husband two years ago is leading a candlelight vigil tonight to remember the silent victims of domestic violence. Heather Duhachek says along with remembering the victims this is also a call for change. She says victims of domestic violence also want Nebraska’s “good time” law changed so those who commit violent acts remain behind bars.
Duhachek says her ex-husband, Timothy Moody was sentenced to six years in prison but due to “good time” he only served two. She says there isn’t a day that she doesn’t remember what happened that night. She says they are asking lawmakers to make the change in the law as they are a domestic violence victim’s last line of defense.
The vigil is at 6:30 on the steps of the Douglas County Courthouse in Omaha.
