I pull back the curtain on the laws relating to Domestic Violence. We explore how and why it is treated differently than other types of assault. We also discuss why these cases are difficult for all participants in the legal system. Frequently prosecutors are unwilling to negotiate a plea bargain for fear that if the perpetrator reoffends, they will be held accountable. Prosecutors are faced with recanting witnesses who through fear, love or financial need will often come to court and ask that the charges be dropped, despite serious injuries in some cases. When the allegations are falsely made, which does happen more often than many care to admit, the lives of the accused can be ruined by the fact of the allegation itself.
