Understanding Domestic Violence in California
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence defines domestic violence as: “…willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior [that’s] part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, threats, and emotional abuse.” According to § 243(e), California Penal Code: “When battery is committed against a spouse, a person with whom the defendant is cohabiting…[the act] is punishable by a fine not exceeding two thousand dollars ($2,000), or by imprisonment in a county jail for a period of not more than one year.”
The incidence of domestic violence can vary dramatically. However, recent data indicates that “…32.9 % of California women and 27.3% of California men experience intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner sexual violence and/or intimate partner stalking in their lifetimes.”
