Court Order Would Allow Abuse Victims to Testify by Video. Will Attorneys Object?

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has given judges the option to allow victims of abuse to testify via video rather than in person. When victims must testify in person, they may suffer re-traumatization or might simply not show up in court. Advocates say the video option allows victims to seek justice while not having to face their abuser. However, some judges may refuse to grant this option on due process grounds.
