Domestic Violence is a crime.
Florida law gives legal protection to battered victims.
Battering is the single major cause of injury to women-more frequent than auto accidents, muggings and rape combined.
Children coping with family violence frequently act out through violence at school and on the streets.
They escape through truancy, teen pregnancy, sexual promiscuity, drug and alcohol abuse or running away.
Children growing up in violent homes often grow up to be violent with their adult partners or become victims themselves.
Battering a pregnant woman is a felony.
