According to Joana, she accepted a promotion on Wednesday (15). Since last Friday (17), according to her, she was already out of the case. Without naming, she reported that a substitute judge took over the action.
The Court of Justice of Santa Catarina (TJSC) confirmed the promotion in the judge’s career on the 15th. The move to the position of Judge of Law of the Commercial Court of the district of Brusque was approved by merit, according to TJ.
The TJ also said that the Corregedoria-Geral does not comment on the possible impact of the internal investigation of the body regarding the judge’s performance in the case of the girl on the promotion obtained by her last week.
Victim of rape, the girl discovered that she was 22 weeks pregnant when she was taken to a hospital in Florianópolis, where she had the procedure to terminate the pregnancy denied by a judge.

The text was published on Monday (20).
Heard by g1 SC, the lawyer for the child’s family highlighted that there is already a court decision authorizing the termination of the girl’s pregnancy. However, the fact that the child was in a shelter prevented the decision from being carried out.
