No one is immune from domestic violence. This crime touches every ethnic group, every culture, and every age, rich or poor, male or female. Acts of domestic violence happen to one out of every four American families and often go unreported. May of the cases that are reported are not fully prosecuted because the victim sometimes of choice and other times out of fear chooses not to testify.
