The Prosecutor's Role In Helping Domestic Violence Victims
MetadataShow full item record
This study examines the Prosecutors role when handling Domestic Violence cases and how they can better help serve battered women and their children without re-victimizing them through the Criminal Justice Juridical system by reviewing secondary survey data. Two statistical analyses were performed to determine if the current way Prosecutors are handling domestic violence cases are in favor to help the battered woman and their children or is it re-victimizing them and not helping them be safe. The hypothesis predicts there is a positive relationship between battered women and their children being re-victimized by the legal system and process.
