BRIDGETON — In honor OF National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, officials from the Cumberland and Cape May county prosecutors’ offices, law enforcement, victim advocates and individuals who have themselves been victims gathered at Cumberland County College for an all-day conference.

Addressing a full George P. Luciano Center, Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae brought attention to those who she called pioneers and heroes in victims rights.

“We have trail blazers right here in our own area — from officials in Cape May County and their work in supporting the No Early Release Act, to here in Cumberland County and Nielsa’s Law, which allows families of murder victims to display pictures of the victim at sentencing, to Assemblyman Nelson Albano and ‘Josh’s Law’ (which instituted harsher penalties for vehicular homicide cases in which alcohol was involved).”

The prosecutor also praised the memory of Carmen DiGregorio, the retired Millville police officer who was fatally injured trying to save a stranger from being kidnapped in 2007.

The fallen officer was this month awarded the Carnegie Medal for heroism.

“In our own community, people have made a difference for the victims that come after them,” added McRae.

The event’s keynote speaker was Susan Murphy-Milano, an author and nationally renown advocate for victims of violent crimes who has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Radio and ABC’s 20/20.

Murphy-Milano witnessed her father, a decorated Chicago violent crimes detective, beat and attack her mother repeatedly throughout her life.

Eventually, she would walk into her childhood home to find her mother murdered and her father in the next room, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

During her address, she beseeched the many prosecutors and law enforcement officers in the room to do more to assist victims of violent crimes throughout the criminal justice process — especially when the accused is a law enforcement officer.

“These people are desperate and they are pleading for the life to be heard,” said Murphy-Milano of the victims she assists. “In so many cases, abusers and attackers got away with what they did, and these victims are only now being helped.”

She also stated victims should be better-educated and more involved in cases.

“Victims cannot be as silent as the crimes,” she said. “I tell them to make evidentiary wills and abuse affidavits. I tell them to collect and tag their own evidence, if they have to.

“We need to start teaching this at a different level.”

Below is how you can create the "EAA" or Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit.  For Prosecutors, District Attorney's and State's Attorney's office's this is a prescription before a victim is murdered and you are left with a cold case because the only information you have is hearsay.  This removes hearsay and kicks out Crawford vs. Washington.
