Please join us in welcoming Kory, a courtroom support dog, to the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office. Kory will work with her handler Jessica Carls, a Victim’s Rights Specialist, to provide emotional support to victims of crime.

Kory’s expenses are being paid by Mick Grewal Sr. and David S. Mittleman of Grewal Law PLLC. We express our gratitude to Mr. Grewal and Mr. Mittleman for their support of this valuable project.

Kory was trained by the Canine Advocacy Program (CAP), which was developed to provide advocacy services to child victims, utilizing a highly trained dog to alleviate the anxiety associated with being involved in the criminal justice system. CAP is a Michigan non-profit charitable organization headquartered in West Bloomfield.

Kory will be “sworn in” by Judge Richard J. Garcia, Chief Circuit and Probate Judge. Please join us in Judge Garcia’s courtroom on Wednesday, February 13 at 3:30 p.m.

Ingham County Probate Court
Courtroom of Judge Richard J. Garcia
Veteran’s Memorial Courthouse

Anne in close to 18 years of law enforcement, 6 in investigations, it was extremely rare for kids to lie close to the degree you allege. When you take into account the practices of forensic interviewers, such as those at CARE House in Oakland County as an example, as well as the due diligence exercised by Prosecutor’s,kids lying and those lies being pushed through the criminal justice system are as low as they come. This program has an amazing affect on child victims and they do so much good.

If the child is lying, this just adds emotional support to the lies. In the eyes of the jury the child will look innocent. Why don't people believe that children have motives for lying about this. For example: the child no longer wants to live with Dad because Dad is too strict. The child learns about CSC in school, TV, posters, and decides this is a good way to get to move to Mom's. But the child does not know the consequences of his/her behavior. Do not think this does not happen.
