Attorney Errol Cook on Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Domestic violence is a serious offense as it involves a threatening, abusive or violent act inflicted upon one member of a family, or household, by another member of the same family or household. Extreme or repeated cases of domestic violence have, at times, resulted in a homicide. Five percent of all California homicides were as a result of domestic violence. While domestic violence must be reported, it is not always the abuser who gets arrested after law enforcement arrives.

Depending on the circumstances, injuries sustained, and accounts of any witness, law enforcement must determine who the primary aggressor is and arrest that individual. In some instances of domestic violence, both parties may be arrested.
