Spousal Abuser Prosecution Program
The Spousal Abuse Prosecution Program was eliminated in 2008. The California Legislature voted to eliminate the Program from the 2008/09 State budget.
It is important to note that safety for victims of domestic violence is a first priority. There are real options to consider. Help is available. If you are in immediate danger: Call 911 or leave as soon as possible.
If you believe you may be battered again: Call 9-1-1. Go to a neighbor's house or other safe place. Call a friend or relative to pick you up. Find a family violence shelter by calling your local police or sheriff's department.
Information and assistance is a call away:
Call the 24-hour National Domestic Violence Hotline at
or the Victims of Crime Resource Center at
These centers can help you locate a family shelter in your area or offer you other assistance.
