On this episode of the en(gender)ed #SurvivorStories series, our guest is Jessica Ingels, a protective mother and domestic violence victim and survivor. In our conversation, Jessica describes the ways in which her abusive ex-husband has weaponized the courts against her to obtain custody of their daughter, despite her protective order against him and her status as an eligible Crime Victims Compensation Bureau victim.
