Identifying the Predominate Aggressor in Intimate Partner Violence Cases
Every year 3-4 million women in the U.S. are abused and 1,500-1,600 are killed by their abusers. One challenge for first responders to a domestic disturbance where both parties are injured is identifying the predominate aggressor.
This presentation will emphasize the importance of contextual analysis in evaluating criminal responsibility at the arrest, charging, pre-trial and sentencing phases.
