Roni was left to fight a fight that few could win. She filled with rage holding her baby now covered in bruises, praying to a God that wouldn't protect her. She pushed back murderous plots in her head. After all, her son and daughter relied on her training to dispense justice---not revenge. Defending her baby, she took her beating in front of a judge and vowed to make them pay. Five years later, she would again face that same system. This time she was a huntress of fugitives---a bounty hunter. A newfound badge of redemption propelled her into the spotlight. Exploited, threatened and sued, she continued her mission. But she found her biggest challenge in the case of human trafficking, the deaths of six young women, and two serial killers.

Roni Faciane is a certified life coach and speaker who advocates for legislation to decriminalize sex work and better monitor sex offenders. Her experience as a former bounty hunter and prison guard giver her a unique perspective on victims and criminals. She helped arrest wayward bail clients, mostly fugitives, in Southern California, but is best known for the attempted capture of Daniel Lee Duvall in 2013. A video of Roni and the owners of Lipstick Bail Bonds pursuing Duvall went viral, generating national and international attention. Duvall sued both Roni and Lipstick for $52 million. He claimed Roni blinded him with a rubber bullet during the attempt and that the women used excessive force violating his civil rights. Following the flood of media interest in the Duvall case, Roni visited the California State Senate in Sacramento to discuss amending some of the language in the bail laws. She also met with both the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and Board Members at the Academy for the Department of Corrections to advocate for changes to training programs for bounty hunters. A judge dismissed the lawsuit after a judge sentenced Duvall to 80 years in prison in 2017 for murdering his uncle with a fatal gunshot in 2015. After the deaths of two women she helped tract as a bounty hunter, she began to advocate decriminalizing sex work and better monitoring of sex offenders. Kiana Jackson in 2013 missed a court date, forcing the bail agent to hire bounty hunters to find her. Authorities later discovered she and four others were victims of California serial killers Steven Gordon and Franc Cano. Both were homeless sex offenders required to wear GPS ankle monitors. Roni was devastated by the 2017 death of a young escort, Jacqueline Brookie Jernigan, who struggled with drug addiction and was arrested by Roni and Lipstick, in 2013. She helped to find the woman a rehab center, and for a time, the pair stayed in touch. She continues to advocate for protection for sex workers, many of whom are vulnerable to violence and substance abuse.
