Children put in harm's way during domestic violence incident

California is home to some of the most iconic people and places in the entire nation. While the state has plenty to boast about, it is far from immune to the types of violent crime that unfortunately occur in America every day. While most people are surely aware that domestic violence is a frightening and dangerous scenario for victims of any age, they may not think of the risk it can pose to children. 

One recent headline from California tells the story of a man who was accused of domestic violence and proceeded to flee in an RV, his children in tow. Authorities say that the man's wife contacted police to report herself a victim of domestic violence. Her husband, the aggressor, chose to leave the home before police could arrive, and took the couple's two minor children with him. 

He led police on a chase that lasted several hours, and officials became extremely concerned for the welfare of the children in the vehicle, because they suspected that the man may be armed. Fortunately, they were able to catch up with the RV, and when the children were found to be safe inside, it is reported that their father was not in the vehicle at that time. He had again fled the scene, and authorities finally caught him again after further pursuit. 

Domestic violence can be a terrifying ordeal for victims, especially children. Being exposed to traumatic situations can affect the rest of a victim's life. Victims and their families have the right to seek the assistance of an attorney who can assist them in making sure their pleas for help are heard.
