You can read the full article and hear Sharonda speak about her work with the Victim Empowerment Program on FIU News here.

Excerpt from the article by Jamie Giller:

“Lebrun is an assistant state attorney for the Broward domestic violence unit. During this sentencing hearing, she successfully obtained a 30-month prison term for the defendant, who had physically attacked his brother for the second time in less than a year. After the hearing ends, Lebrun approaches the victim and asks him how he’s feeling. Leaving the courtroom, Lebrun has a bounce in her step.

When you’re able to put a case to trial, have a jury come back with a verdict of guilty, and bring back that sense of relief or justice to a victim, you feel like you’ve done your job

Lebrun said.
