Juanita Bynum, the “Face of Domestic Violence” is taking her experience to TV’s “Divorce Court.” In episodes set to air Thursday and Friday of this week, Bynum observes and weighs in on a case involving domestic violence. Her husband, Thomas Weeks, who Bynum said “choked her, pushed her down, kicked and stomped her … until a bellman pulled him off of her” ~ will not be appearing on the show and is currently involved in violence and anger counseling as a condition of his sentence.
Bynum told Judge Lynn Toler — who hears cases on the syndicated show distributed by Twentieth Television — that she saw signs of trouble in her marriage to Thomas W. Weeks III before the Aug. 21 incident that ended in a physical altercation in a hotel parking lot outside of Atlanta.
