JACKSON, Tenn. — The case involving a domestic-related shooting at a north Jackson bank has local domestic violence prevention advocates speaking out. WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News talked Monday to a manager at Jackson’s Wo/men’s Resource and Rape Assistance Program, known as WRAP. She said victims of domestic violence should not only get an order of protection from a judge but tell those around you about your situation. “That the workplace is made aware of these and is supportive of the victim and that is supportive of the order of protection,” said Cinda Gee, a clinical program manager with WRAP. “So in other words, if the person comes around, the employees help protect everyone by calling the police.” According to court papers, Virginia Dorris did get a temporary restraining order against David Laster following his September arrest, but after it expired Oct. 10, Dorris never petitioned the court for a permanent order.
