Lola Vollen Testifies For Plaintiff

Lola Vollen, editor of the book "Surviving Justice," and founder of the "Life After Exoneration" program, recently testified for plaintiff Alejandro Dominguez in his civil rights lawsuit against the City of Waukegan and former Police Lieutenant Paul Hendley. Ms. Vollen conducted a 7 hour interview of Mr. Dominguez. Ms. Vollen testified that it is very unusual for a person who served time in prison to pursue their exoneration. She also testified regarding post-rape trauma syndrome and said that Mr. Dominguez was suicidal after getting out of prison. On cross-examination, Ms. Vollen testified that she is not a psychiatrist or treater and that she did not examine Mr. Dominguez's prison records or medical records.
