Although there is no excuse for violence, in many cases alcohol use is what contributes to violence. Studies have shown that as many as one in four victims of violent crimes report being attacked by someone who had previously been consuming alcohol. This is especially prevalent in domestic violence cases where emotions can be escalated by alcohol abuse.
The term “domestic violence” can mean any number of violent offenses against a spouse, family member, current or former parties in a social relationship, or other person living in the same residence. There are so many different crimes that can be committed by an offender, and some are certainly more common than others.
