Woman's Testimony Canceled on Alleged Abuse in Family Court - 8 News NOW

UPDATE: Woman's Testimony Canceled on Court Abuse Case

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Monica Contreras, the woman who accused a family court marshal of sexually groping her during a search, had her testimony before a federal grand jury canceled.

Contreras was called to testify before the federal grand jury Tuesday morning. Her attorney, Ross Goodman, said Contreras was set to testify, but sat there for nearly three hours before being told her testimony was not needed. Goodman said there is no word on why it was canceled and whether the testimony will be rescheduled.

Contreras accused marshal Ron Fox of sexually touching her during a search. The I-Team revealed her story in March 2013 with a video that showed how she was arrested in front of her young daughter when she tried to tell the hearing master what happened.

In recent month, the federal grand jury has been hearing testimony about several abuse allegations involving Clark County family court marshals.

Fox lost his job after the alleged incident. Hearing master Patricia Doninger has not been an employee with Clark County Family Courts since June 2013.
