CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Nueces County District Attorney's Office has partnered with Victims Voice, the developer of an app for domestic abuse victims.

It allows victims to store details and photos of their abuse anonymously and safely and it's considered a legally admissible documentation tool.

Nueces County District Attorney Mark Gonzalez thinks it will help victims of domaestic abuse in our community.

"This partnership is about giving victims their voices, and not only giving them a voice, but another tool, another tool so that way we can come to court and hopefully seek the justice that is much needed." Gonzalez said.

The county has bought 200 licenses to access the Victims Voice app. Each is good for one year.

They will be given out for free to domestic abuse victims who contact the district attorney's office.

They should be ready in about two weeks.
