• Bite Size Episode: How To Write a Victim Impact Statement

    5 GIU 2024 · Most crime victims know they have the right to give a victim impact statement (VIS) before sentencing and at parole board hearings. But most people do not realize that judges seldom use our input.  That's because we don't stick to our task: giving a rationale for our sentence recommendation. It's a relatively recent privilege to have our say in court.  It took federal legislation to make it a reality (the Victim and Witness Protection Act of 1982).  Not everyone is on board.  The ACLU has consistently opposed this right.  They believe it undermines due process. This episode provides a quick overview of the dos and don't behind giving a victim impact statement.

  • Jeanne Dotts Brykalski: The parole system from the viewpoint of the homicide survivor

    8 MAG 2024 · Jeanne Dotts Brykalski lost her parents to murder in a quiet neighborhood in East Tennessee when they interrupted a burglary in progress by three assailants in their own home.  Jeanne is a veteran of the homicide survivor experience.  She's been through the death notification, funerals, trial and faced the parole board before.  She's served as a victim advocate for others.  Jeanne has insights only an experienced "insider" could have. This is the second time we've heard from Jeanne.  We first met her November 10, 2021, when she detailed the deaths of her parents, Les and Carol, and the comfort her parents' dog provided to her immediately following the tragic news. In this episode, we will glean what it's like to go before a parole board.  And just as important, Jeanne invites you to get involved by signing the petition to keep David Scarbrough behind bars.  (You need not be a resident of Tennessee or be personally involved with the situation.)  The petition will need to be signed before December 1, 2024.

  • MeganConner on her Cousin, Lori Vallow Daybell's Three Murders

    27 MAR 2024 · Megan Conner has known her older cousin, Lori Vallow Daybell, all her life.  They grew up within their tightly-knit, extended family in the context of the Mormon faith.  Megan eloquently explains the roots of the triple murders which her cousin was found guilty of.  This included the murder of Meegan's niece and nephew, Tylee Ryan, and Joshua "JJ" Jaxon Vallow at the hands of her cousin ("filicide").  The third conviction was for the homicide of Lori's last husband's wife, Tammy.  Lori was sentenced to three consecutive life terms. (Lori faces two additional counts of conspiracy to commit murder related to the death of her fourth husband, Charles Vallow, and conspiring to kill her niece’s ex-husband Brandon Boudreaux.) Lori's children went missing in 2019 which set off a national manhunt for their whereabouts.  Lori was nick-named "Doomsday Mom" in the popular press due to her religious beliefs solidified in the Netflix documentary series "Sins of Our Mother." Today Megan speaks out in the hope that people will look upon the tragedy in her family as a cautionary tale.  She urges others to speak the truth, heed warning signs and get outside help earlier rather than later.
