"You said, 'Hit me,' and he did. What do you want me to do?" A prosecutor asked Dolores, whose husband had beaten her, when she tried to file a criminal complaint against him. Dolores sat across from the prosecutor, with a bruised face, stunned at his question. She wanted him to do his job and enforce the law. She expected to be treated like any other crime victim. Instead, Dolores was sent home, where she endured eight more years of escalating physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her husband.
