I am writing in support of Rod Souza for district judge. I come with a different perspective than most as I was a victim of a very serious crime, and Souza prosecuted the case in district court. This case took three years to complete as it was rather complicated.

I was originally quite unfamiliar with legal proceedings, in particular those having to do with domestic violence. Over the three years, Souza would take time to explain laws and proceedings to me so I could understand. Any time I asked for further explanation from him, he would always make time to speak with me about the case. Because of Souza's knowledge of the Montana laws and his organization of the case, the person who committed this crime was found guilty and sent to prison, and my family and I have found relief from this situation.

I know Souza is the best candidate for district judge because I have seen his work firsthand and know of his passion for justice, his concern for individuals and his legal expertise. Souza will act in a firm, fair and consistent manner in dealing with individuals in the District Court legal system.

Your vote for Souza will insure all victims of crimes and the perpetrators of these crimes are treated with respect and justice will prevail. Vote for Rod Souza for district judge to ensure the safety and well-being of all those involved with legal proceedings at this level of the judicial system.
