Sexual Abuse Charges & Allegations
Judy Harrison Barganier was raised in Birmingham, Alabama, where she attended public school at Glen Iris and Ramsay High School. After attending the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, the University of Alabama in Birmingham, and graduating with a Bachelor of Science from Auburn University in Montgomery, Judy graduated magna cum laude from the Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 1992 and received her Juris Doctor degree. Judy began practicing law as a sole practitioner, and then in 1993, she became a Deputy District Attorney for the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit in Montgomery County. In 1994 Judy originated the Montgomery County Task Force on Domestic Violence with Judge Lynn Bright, which brought major and continuing reforms to the way domestic violence cases were handled in Montgomery County.
In that same year, she co-founded the Sexual Assault Response Team in Montgomery County, which radically reformed the criminal justice system’s response to victims of rape, sodomy, and other sexual assault crimes. Judy participated as a member of the Multi-Disciplinary Teams, which handled child abuse and child sexual abuse allegations and crimes. In 1998, she returned to private practice, and on January 1, 2000, Judy created her Alabama family law and Alabama criminal defense private practice of law as the Law Offices of Judy H. Barganier, P.C.
On many occasions and for many agencies and organizations throughout her career, Judy has been asked to share her knowledge and expertise through training programs and presentations with fellow attorneys in Alabama, Louisiana, and on a national faculty, as well as with mental health professionals, social workers, and law enforcement agencies on numerous topics of law. Judy is also a registered mediator and has participated in various mediation training seminars.
Judy has four adult children, Harrison Barganier, a paralegal; John Barganier, a dentist in Montgomery; Jay Barganier, a dentist in the Charleston area of South Carolina; and Andy Barganier, an estimator and project manager for a large construction firm in New Orleans, Louisiana. Judy enjoys being “Grandmommy” to her nine wonderful grandchildren, who range in age from five years to twenty-seven years of age.
