the final route Once the LCRA decides where to build the power line it must receive a permit from the Public Utility Commission of Texas before construction can begin The power line will connect two

transformed through gruesome if not tragic events onto the front pages of this nation While Simpsons case may grab the biggest headlines in this country the issue of domestic violence the root of the drama has also been thrust into the spotlight Cases like Simpsons demon strate that domestic violence cuts across all demographic lines be they economic social ethnic etc These cases occur everywhere from Holly wood to Comal County Whether is guilty or innocent bringing this to the public light will affect our said Chante Mazy director of the Comal County Womens Center A woman in the United States is beaten every 15 seconds said Mazy She said local police and sheriff calls regarding domestic violence have risen and over 70 percent of emer gencyroom calls around the country deal with domestic violence County Attorney Nathan Rheinlan der said his office handled 131 assault cases in 1993 and 64 through 1994 the majority of cases being associated with domestic violence a Class A misde meanor that carries up to a fine or a year in jail Rheinlander said they often have problems bringing the offenders to tri al because the victim will eventually fail to testify after a two or threemonth span between initial filing and actual trial Rheinlander said one thing they are trying to do is have officers sign the complaint instead of the victim part of a noilrop policy that Rheinlander says helps to bolster and stay with it Rheinlander t said on firsttime related offenses probastory Page 3 tion is often a good measure because the county can monitor persons for up to two years as opposed to serving say 30 days and then leaving with no future supervision or counseling What we really need to do is keep it from happening he said Probation is an excellent prevention Jack Williamson of the County Adult Probation Office said the office recently started a Family Violence Intervention Program which deals intensively with the problem Most commonly there is a pattern of substance abuse that goes handin hand with domestic he said Rheinlander said a very good option is a Family Violence Protective Order filed as a civil case which restricts an abuser from being within a certain dis tance of the victim or may contain other restrictions up to one year Violation of the order is a criminal offense whereby the offender would sit in jail until the judge heard the case Williamson said cases of domestic violence arc expected to rise in this decade due in part to better support programs for victims the ability of law enforcement to ancst and new laws which support that arrest We really didnt have any laws said New Braunfels Police Chief Dick Deaden They officers were social workers With protective orders shelters such as the Womens Center and laws that give officers a firm ground Hcadcn said the situation as far as arrest has improved dramatically just over the last three years For news advertising or subscription information call 6259144 or Metro 6060846
