Helen Fitzpatrick, openly lesbian, have just been named as liaison to the LGBT community by District Attorney Seth Williams in Philadelphia.

 

According to The InquirerThe Inquirer, LGBT liaison will not be the only part of Fitzpatrick's portfolio. She said she will also coordinate prosecution of all "hate crimes" and handle her full caseload in the Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit.

"I think what I hear in the community is that a lot of crime that occurs that seems to be targeted specifically because of who somebody is is not recognized," Fitzpatrick said. "Instead, it's treated as if it's merely a simple misdemeanor assault. . . . Crimes against somebody because of who they are should be aggressively prosecuted."
