DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: Finding justice often difficult

-A A +A
By Becky Barnes

Editors note: This is the second story in a series about domestic violence.

Its emotionally difficult to press charges, but youre not doing them any favors by not pressing charges, said a 56-year-old single mother, whose son hit her in the face when he was just 12 years old.

She didnt press charges the first time.

The boy was angry because she refused to let him go to a ball game.

The next time, he hit her in the arm.

It wasnt a decision she wanted to make, but she knew her son had to realize there were consequences for his actions.
