A.W. was recently indicted on domestic violence charges relating to an incident that occurred in early August. The senior citizen will be going to court on the charges within the coming months. 76-year-old A.W. was taken into custody after police and emergency rescue was called to his home by the man's son. The reports say that A.W. began choking his wife with a belt until she went unconscious. He then allegedly beat her. A.W. called his son who rushed over and tried to revive his mother. When he was unsuccessful he contacted the authorities who were able to revive the woman and transport her to a local hospital for treatment. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a domestic violence incident then you should talk to a divorce lawyer knowledgeable in family assault and abuse cases.

Senior Faces Serious Assault Charges

A.W. was indicted on charges of reckless endangerment as well as 1st and 2nd degree assault. There was no information reported explaining what led up to the violent attack. His wife's current condition was not disclosed. If convicted, A.W. could be punished with imprisonment, fines and other penalties.

Domestic violence is a serious issue that requires knowledgeable and effective legal help. Domestic abuse is not confined to merely physical acts of violence but can include instances of emotional abuse as well. There may have been signs of emotional abuse early on in the relationship that may not have been recognized or may have been brushed aside such as mild threats or efforts to control the other's life. As time goes on, however, these instances may escalate into severe physical violence. For some victims of a violent marriage or other relationship the only thing more frightening than staying with the person can be the fear of what may happen if they try to get help. It is important to know that there is help available and you can escape this nightmare of a situation.
