Victim Advocate Sonja Gonzales-Metelak
Congratulations to Victim Advocate Sonja Gonzales-Metelak for receiving the District Attorney's Office Standards of Excellence Award.
The Bureau of Victim Services would like to recognize Sonja for providing trauma informed services to the victims impacted by the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Working in conjunction with her co-workers that had been dispatched to Las Vegas, Sonja was the local point of contact and assisted the victims who came back home to California after the events of that traumatic day.
Her willingness to take on such an immense task demonstrates the heart, mind and spirt of an advocate. The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office is eternally grateful for your service.
