Program targets violence in home
CORPUS CHRISTI — Some fear retaliation. Others believe their partner’s promises that it will be the last time. Many simply don’t understand the legal process.
But regardless of the reasons, the Nueces County District Attorney’s Office wants victims of domestic violence to know their options.
That’s why the office now requires victims who want their cases dismissed to attend the Domestic Violence 101 Workshop and meet with an advocate one-on-one.
Officials say most who go through the process end up changing their minds and decide not to sign a non-prosecution affidavit. The form requests the office consider dismissing a case.
