Domestic abuse expert witnesses may consult and testify on domestic violence, family violence, domestic assault, and related matters. Lawrence Cambra fatally shot an Oregon volunteer officer-in-training this past weekend after having police called to the residence 10 times in 2012 for domestic disputes. When Officer Robert Libke arrived at the burning house, Cambra shot him in the face with a rifle. Officer Libke had not drawn his weapon.
Domesticviolence.org decribes domestic violence:
Violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking. Although emotional, psychological and financial abuse are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence.
