Michelle Rowling was a proud mother of two small children. She was also a woman struggling to escape an allegedly abusive relationship with her boyfriend, Montrell Cooper. It wasn't easy. In fact, once after he was arrested for assaulting her, Rowling actually helped her boyfriend escape jail time in exchange for probation.
But that all changed after his most recent arrest. After another attack on Rowling, Cooper found himself in jail, where he's been since August. The time apart from her abuser gave Rowling the time and space she needed to realize that she had to make a break from this man forever.
