Studies looks at dating violence, homicide among teens

Some teenage girls in California may be at some risk of intimate partner violence. A study that appeared in JAMA Pediatrics in April looked at the more than 2,000 teens killed from 2003 to 2016. In that time, intimate partners killed 150 of them. The perpetrator was 18 or older in almost 80 percent of the cases, and girls were the ones killed in 90 percent of cases, with an average age of 17.

Football player released after domestic incident

The 49ers have a following both within California and throughout the nation, so fans may have heard about the release of linebacker Reuben Foster. He was let go by the team after allegations of domestic violence were made against him in Tampa. On Nov. 24, police were called to the Grand Hyatt hotel at about 9 p.m. to investigate a claim that Foster and his former girlfriend had gotten into a physical altercation.

Michael Avenatti detained on felony domestic violence charges

California residents who watch cable news will undoubtedly be familiar with Michael Avenatti. The outspoken attorney has been a vocal critic of President Trump and has even floated the possibility of seeking the Oval Office himself in 2020, but those plans were dealt a serious blow on Nov. 14 when Avenatti was taken into custody by police in Los Angeles on felony domestic violence charges.

Dealing with false accusations of domestic violence

Being accused of domestic violence is not something anyone in California should take lightly, even when the accusations are false. Matters can be even worse since most people, including other family members, friends, co-workers, and even employers, tend to instinctively side with the person making the accusations. If not dealt with proactively, untrue accusations made by a spouse, partner, friend, or family member could lead to protective orders, fines, a loss of parental rights, jail time, or loss of employment.
