When Victims of Battering are Charged with Crimes: Part 1 - Background and Overview

Event Date
Wednesday, June 20, 2018, 03:00PM

When victims of battering get arrested and face criminal charges, the criminal legal system labels them as "perpetrators" or "offenders."  They are often no longer seen as victims by people in the system, and even by some service providers.  This webinar will explore many of the common reasons that victims of battering get arrested, the unique challenges they face in the criminal legal system, difficulties they face trying to get assistance and services from victim service organizations, and safety risks they face as a result of being charged.
