October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The month of October is a favorite on the calendar for many Georgia residents. The heat of summer finally releases it's grip, and cool weather brings fun activities like football games, walks in the woods to enjoy the foliage and family favorite dinners. October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and one local community has found a creative way to bring attention to the issue. 

Big change to laws regarding domestic violence

Recently, the state of Georgia has made some major changes to laws pertaining to restraining orders, in an effort to combat family violence. Domestic violence remains a grave concern in communities across the nation, and in many cases, a mere accusation can land a defendant on the receiving end of a restraining order. Laws about restraining orders have recently changed, and residents should be made aware that violating such an order is now a serious crime. 

Police use viral challenge to call awareness of domestic violence

Violent crime remains a significant concern in Georgia. Even still, many people may be shocked to learn the actual statistics in their local communities. One police department decided to partake in a viral video challenge to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence locally. Domestic violence in Georgia is classified as "family violence," and can include physical, emotional or sexual abuse. 

Suspect charged with violent crimes at church

Georgia residents would probably agree that, when life gets stressful, it is helpful to have a community of understanding people to lend an ear to their troubles. One place many find solace and compassion is their local church. A church probably feels like a safe place to vent frustrations and tell one's side of a story without fear of judgement. Unfortunately, as one man recently learned, becoming emotional at church can lead to being accused of violent crimes.

New law aims to help victims escape family violence

Georgia families probably know that violent crime has become an epidemic nationwide. Family violence can affect victims for decades to come. When a victim chooses to seek help, or someone seeks help on his or her behalf, they may worry that escaping the abuse entirely is impossible. Recently, the state has taken steps to help.

Most Georgia residents are aware that when it comes to crime, authorities are particularly quick to act when there is an accusation of violence. Domestic violence accusations can leave an alleged offender facing some serious penalties if found guilty. Domestic violence means an act of aggression has been committed by one person against another member of a household. 

College man arrested, accused of assault and battery

 In almost all relationships between Georgia couples, arguments and disagreements can be expected. During these disputes, emotions can run high for all parties involved. In the heat of the moment, things happen that are unpredicted and, often, regrettable. Assault and battery charges are unfortunate, but common.

Multiple violent crimes charges filed after shooting

Violence within families is a subject that is taken very seriously across the nation. If violence against a spouse or child is suspected, then it isn't unusual for violent crimes charges to be filed. Numerous charges relating to family violence will be filed against a man in Georgia after authorities responded to reports of gunfire. 

Family violence shocks one Georgia community

One Georgia community is in shock after a mother was accused of stabbing her husband and five children. Family violence often comes as a surprise to neighbors who may have watched the children play or otherwise seen the family members together. Many people tend to question what drives a person to violence against those they love.
