“One of the first things Ollie Marie-Victoire did after becoming a San Francisco judge in 1974 was to dismiss more than 100 prostitution charges against women because the district attorney wasn’t prosecuting the men who solicited them.” [Egelko/Chron]

Retired SF Judge Ollie Marie-Victoire died Saturday.

“She was brought up by a bunch of strong women who didn’t let things stand in their way,” according to her daughter, and did some pretty amazing things in her 88 years.
