3 Introduction Intimate partner violence includes incidents where the offender and victim are related through marriage/common-law, as an ex -spouse, boy/girlfriend, or as same sex partners. In 2010, there were 5,901 victims of reported intimate partner violence in Idaho. Domestic violence, on the other hand, (as defined by Idaho statute) includes incidents where the offender and victim are married, formerly married, or have a child in common. Crimes reported to the Idaho Incident Based Reporting System (IIBRS) do not indicate whether the victim and offender reside within the same household or have a child in common. In addition, IIBRS does not indicate the actual Idaho statute violation that occurred, but rather provides crime types that have been standardized for crime comparison across the nation. To understand the trend of domestic violence in Idaho, this report provides information from both court case filings and police reports (IIBRS data) from 2005 through Court filings were obtained for all cases of domestic violence assault and battery, attempted strangulation, stalking, domestic violence protection order and no contact order violations between 2005 and The actual victim/ offender relationship was unknown, but these specific charges were focused on as they are more commonly associated with intimate partners. The outcomes of cases filed related to domestic relationships helps understand how criminal cases are handled by the judicial system. Although IIBRS does not track Idaho code violations, it contains the victim/offender relationship, which was used to determine all crimes occurring between intimate partners and family members between 2005 and Intimate partner and family member victims are compared against all victims within this report, to understand the characteristics and trends of family violence in Idaho. Domestic Violence Protection Order and No Contact Order Violations Since 1988, the Domestic Violence Crime Prevention Act (Idaho Code Section ) has offered protection orders to victims of domestic violence. The protection order issued by a court offers protection to both adults and children from physical harm. If immediate and present danger of violence exists, the order can be granted immediately. However, emergency orders are temporary until a full hearing is conducted 1. There are slight differences between a no contact order and a domestic violence protection order. A no contact order is issued by a judge and orders the defendant in a criminal case to have no contact with the victim, most often in cases involving domestic violence or stalking. Violation of both a no contact order and domestic violence protection order is a misdemeanor and the violator may be arrested without a warrant. Between 2005 and 2010 there were 3,271 domestic violence protection order violations filed and 6,430 no contact order violations filed in criminal court. Violation of a protection order and no contact order is punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000. Idaho Domestic Violence Courts Idaho currently has operating domestic violence courts in five judicial districts. Idaho Domestic Violence Courts seek to improve the safety of victims and children and hold more offenders accountable. In FY2011 (July 1,2010 through June 30, 2011), domestic violence courts monitored 1,575 offenders 2, a 73% increase over the prior two years. In addition, domestic violence court coordinators assisted 1,695 victims, representing a 7% increase from 2010 and a 70% increase from In addition to criminal cases filed, there were 4,637 domestic violence civil cases handled by the magistrate court and 9 handled by the district court in Idaho Fourth District Court (2012).

4 Highlights Court Records: After the initial filing of 21,287 charges for domestic violence assault/battery, 63.5% were adjudicated as domestic violence assault/battery, 24.9% as disturbing the peace, 8.9% as battery (versus domestic violence battery), 0.9% as disorderly conduct, and 0.8% as assault (versus domestic assault). Over half (54.3%) domestic violence assault and battery charges, prosecuted as the original charge, were dismissed and 38.0% were found guilty. Domestic violence assault/battery cases adjudicated as a lesser charge were more likely to result in guilty outcomes. Most (96.6%) no contact order violations and domestic violence protection order violations (93.2%) were prosecuted as such. No contact order violations adjudicated as the original charge were more likely to result in guilty outcomes than domestic violence protection order violations (49.6% compared to 41.4%). Nearly two-thirds (63.6%) of attempted strangulation cases (N=2,271) were prosecuted as attempted strangulation. The majority (70.6%) of attempted strangulation cases adjudicated as such were dismissed. If prosecuted as a domestic violence assault/battery charge, 85.1% of attempted strangulation cases resulted in guilty outcomes. Three quarters (77.3%) of all stalking cases were prosecuted as stalking. Over half (55.9%) of stalking cases adjudicated as stalking were dismissed, and nearly one-third (32.4%) were found guilty. The majority (90.1%) of stalking cases prosecuted as disturbing the peace were found guilty. Police Reports: Between 2005 and 2010, 27.0% of victims of violent crime were in intimate partner relationships (IPV) with the offender, 15.9% were familial related (FV), and other relationship types made up the remaining 57.1%. Victims of IPV were more likely to experience an injury than FV or other victims (56.8% compared to 40.4% and 43.3%). Between 2005 and 2010, 36.4% of all homicides were committed between intimate partners. As noted in officer reports, incidents involving intimate partners were more likely to involve alcohol than incidents involving either family or other relationships (22.9% IPV compared to 10.4% FV and 17.1% Other). In 5.3% of incidents where a child was victimized by a parent, the parent was thought to be under the influence of drugs. Asphyxiation (strangulation) was more common in IPV incidents (0.9%) than in other relationships (0.05%). Use of drugs as a weapon occurred within 0.04% of IPV incidents, but more commonly within FV (0.1%) and other relationship (0.1%) incidents. Of offenders who drugged their victim (N=110 between 2005 and 2010), nearly half (46.4%) were suspected to also be under the influence of drugs, and 18.2% were suspected to be under the influence of alcohol. Family violence follows a unique pattern over the course of the week. IPV is much more common on Sunday than any other day. Family violence, on the other hand, occurs more often on Monday through Thursday. The majority of IPV and FV victims were female (80.6% and 61.8% respectively). However, family member victims were more likely to be male than intimately related victims (38.2% compared to 19.4%). Although individuals suspected to be both victim and offender were slightly more likely to be female (51.6%), females who were considered both victim and offender were less likely to be arrested (45.5%). IPV victims had the greatest tendency to be considered both offender and victim in an incident, composing nearly half (42.4%) of all such situations. 4

5 Idaho Court Records Between 2005 and 2010 there were 21,347 domestic violence assault and battery cases filed in Idaho, an average of 3,558 per year. In addition, there were 6,430 no contact order violations (average of 1,072 per year) and 3,271 domestic violence protection order violations (average of 545 per year). On a smaller scale, there were 2,276 attempted strangulation cases filed (average of 379 per year) and 1,146 stalking charges (average of191 per year). Domestic violence assault and battery, no contact order violations, domestic violence violation of protection order, and stalking cases were lower in 2010 than in Attempted strangulation, however, increased by 12.1% from 2005 to Year Total charges , , , , , ,280 Original Charge Domestic Violence Assault and Battery 21, % No Contact Order Violation 6, % Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation 3, % Attempted Strangulation 2, % Stalking 1, % Total 34, % N % % adjudicated as felony Number of Cases Filed Per Year: ,826 3,666 3, ,429 3,426 3, Domestic Violence Assault and Battery 2500 No Contact Order Violation ,263 1,071 1,033 1,013 1, Domestic Violence Violation of Protection Order Attempted Strangulation Stalking 5

6 Outcome of Case For this research, the court case outcome was categorized as either: 1) acquittal; 2) guilty; 3) dismissed; 4) conditional dismissal/judgment withheld; 5) guilty withheld judgment; or 6) inactivity dismissal. An acquittal certifies the accused is free from the charge as far as criminal law is concerned. Reasons for dismissal cover a wide range and result in the charge being dropped. In cases of withheld judgment, the judge withholds judgment until the defendant fulfills certain obligations. Typically, individuals are only allowed one withheld judgment within their lifetime. The offender is not convicted of the offense but can be placed on probation, asked to provide restitution to the victim, reimburse prosecution costs, perform volunteer service, or sometimes serve a jail term. After successful completion of agreement the offender can apply to have the charge dismissed. Approximately half (51.8%) of all cases studied were given guilty sentences and an additional 3.4% were found guilty after withheld judgment. Less than half (40.4%) of cases were dismissed and 0.8% were acquitted. Depending upon whether the adjudicated charge was a misdemeanor or a felony, there were different outcomes for the case. A higher proportion of felony versus misdemeanor charges were dismissed (52.5% compared to 39.5%). In addition, more guilty findings were determined among misdemeanor charges (54.3%) than felony (39.5%). Felony domestic violence assault/battery charges (49.5%) were more likely to result in guilty outcomes than no contact order violations (43.3%), domestic violence protection order violations (29.0%), attempted strangulation (28.3%), or stalking (38.2%). Felony domestic violence protection order violations and felony attempted strangulation were more likely to result in dismissal. For charges adjudicated as a misdemeanor, attempted strangulation (original charge) had the highest proportion resulting in a guilty verdict (72.5%), followed by domestic violence assault/battery (56.0%) and no contact order violation (52.7%). Half (50.1%) of all misdemeanor domestic violence protection order cases were dismissed, more than any other misdemeanor violation focused on for this report.

7 Overall, 12.4% of all offenses focused on for this report were prosecuted as a felony and 87.6% as a misdemeanor. 25.8% of acquittals were felony and 74.2% were misdemeanor. 9.3% of guilty verdicts/pleas were felony and 90.6% were misdemeanor. 15.9% of dismissals were felonies and 84.1% were misdemeanors. After the initial court filing, some offenses were prosecuted as a different offense. The following provides a breakdown of the most common charges cases were prosecuted as. Domestic Violence Assault and Battery Of the 21,287 domestic violence assault/battery charges, 63.5% were prosecuted as domestic violence assault/battery, 24.9% as disturbing the peace, 8.9% as battery (versus domestic violence battery), 0.9% as disorderly conduct, and 0.8% as assault (versus domestic assault). The table on this page shows the remaining charges and outcomes originating from domestic violence assault and battery cases. Domestic violence assault and battery cases adjudicated as such, were more likely to be dismissed than if adjudicated as a different charge (54.3% compared to 36.8%). Charges prosecuted as disturbing the peace were most likely to result in a guilty outcome (94.2%). % Dismissed by % Prosecutor/ Guilty court Original Charge: Domestic Violence Assault and Battery n % % Acquittal Total 21, % 57.9% 36.8% Adjudicated charge: Domestic violence assault/battery 13, % 1.2% 38.0% 54.3% Disturbing the peace 5, % 94.2% 5.2% Battery 1, % 0.2% 92.2% 7.6% Disorderly conduct % 93.4% 5.6% Assault % 90.8% 9.2% Property - Malicious injury to property % 91.2% 7.0% Attempted strangulation % 18.5% 40.7% Telephone - Remove/obstruct lines or equipment % 76.2% 23.8% Assault - Aggravated % % No contact order violation % 63.6% Injury to child % 55.6% Battery - Aggravated % 42.9% Unlawful entry % 16.7% False imprisonment 5 10 Use of deadly weapon in commission of felony Witness intimidate from testifying % 25.0% 5 Weapon Exhibition or use of deadly weapon 4 10 Trespass 4 10 Officers - Resisting or obstructing officers % 25.0% Driving under the influence % 25.0% Driving reckless 4 10 Kidnapping First degree 3 10 Controlled substance possession % 33.3% Drug Paraphernalia % 66.6% Driving - Inattentive/careless % 33.3% Alcohol beverage consume/purchase by minor % 66.6% Rape Robbery 2 10 Pedestrian - Under the influence of alcohol or drugs 2 10 Drivers license - Failure to purchase/invalid 2 10 Lewd conduct with child under Accessory to felony/harboring a wanted felon 1 10 Kidnapping 2nd degree 1 10 Unlawful assembly 1 10 Telephone - Use of to Terrify/harass false statement 1 10 Assault or battery upon certain personnel 1 10 Controlled substance - Conspiracy to commit offense 1 10 Note: For ease of analysis, guilty/withheld judgment were combined with guilty and conditional dismissal/withheld judgment were combined with dismissed. % Other 4.5% 6.5% 0.6% 1.3% 1.0% 1.8% 40.7% 14.3% 36.4% 16.7% 7

8 No Contact Order Violation Of the 6,422 initial filings for no contact order violations between 2005 and 2010, most (96.6%) were prosecuted as no contact order violation, with fewer prosecuted as disturbing the peace (2.1%), domestic violence violation of protection order (0.4%) or other charge (0.9%). Half (49.6%) of all cases prosecuted as no contact order violations resulted in a guilty outcome. Cases prosecuted as disturbing the peace were more likely to result in a guilty verdict (97.8%). Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation Most (93.2%) domestic violence protection order violation cases were prosecuted as domestic violence protection order violation. A small portion of violations were prosecuted as disturbing the peace (4.7%), no contact order violation (1.3%), contempt of court (0.2%) or other (0.6%). Slightly over half (51.8%) of domestic violence protection order violations (prosecuted as such) were dismissed by the prosecutor/court. Only 0.5% were acquitted of charges. Domestic violence protection order violations more often resulted in a guilty outcome if prosecuted as disturbing the peace (89.7%) or no contact order violation (68.2%). Of note, more no contact order violations resulted in guilty outcomes than domestic violence protection order violations (49.6% compared to 44.4%) and fewer were dismissed (45.7% compared to 49.1%). % Dismissed by Original Charge: No Contact Order Violation N % % Acquittal % Guilty prosecutor/ court Total 6, % 49.6% 45.7% Adjudicated charge: No Contact Order Violation 6, % 0.3% 49.6% 45.7% Disturbing the Peace % 97.8% 2.2% Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation % 71.4% 28.6% Contempt of Court 9 0.1% 77.8% 11.1% Witness Intimidate from testifying 8 0.1% 11.1% 11.1% Stalking 8 0.1% 42.9% 28.6% Aiding in a misdemeanor 4 0.1% 10 Disorderly Conduct 3 10 Telephone - Remove/obstruct lines or equipment % Drivers license - driving without privileges % 33.3% Domestic violence assault/battery 2 10 Property - Malicious injury to property Trespass 2 10 Alcohol Bev - Unlawful transportation/open container Controlled substance possession Burglary 1 10 Officers - resisting or obstructing officers 1 10 Battery 1 10 Failure to appear for misdemeanor citation 1 10 Accident fail stop damage accident/leave scene 1 10 Accident-Fail provide info/provide false info 1 10 Note: For ease of analysis, guilty/withheld judgment were combined with guilty and conditional dismissal/withheld judgment were combined with dismissed. 8 Other 4.4% 4.4% 11.1% 77.8% 28.6% 66.6% % Dismissed Original Charge: Domestic Violence Protection by prosecutor/ Order Violation N % % Acquittal % Guilty court % Other Total 3, % 44.4% 49.1% 6.1% Adjudicated Charge: Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation 3, % 0.5% 41.4% 51.8% 6.4% Disturbing the Peace % 89.7% 9.7% 0.6% No Contact Order Violation % 68.2% 22.7% 9.1% Contempt of Court 5 0.2% 8 2 Disorderly Conduct 4 0.1% 10 Stalking 4 0.1% 10 Officers - resisting or obstructing officers 3 0.1% 10 Trespass 2 0.1% 10 Children - Providing shelter to runaway children 1 10 Aiding in a misdemeanor 1 10 Telephone - Use of to harass or make obscene phone calls 1 10 Property - Malicious injury to property 1 10 Unlawful entry 1 10 Property destroy, take personal prop legal custody 1 10 Alcohol Bev - Unlawful transportation/open container 1 10 Note: For ease of analysis, guilty/withheld judgment were combined with guilty and conditional dismissal/withheld judgment were combined with dismissed.

One quarter (24.7%), however, were prosecuted as domestic violence assault/ battery, and 6.2% as battery. The majority (82.1%) of attempted strangulation cases were dismissed. If prosecuted as a domestic violence assault/battery charge, 85.1% of attempted strangulation cases resulted in guilty outcomes. Stalking Most of the 1,143 stalking charges were prosecuted as stalking (77.3%). The remaining most common charges included disturbing the peace (13.2%), telephone use of to harass or make obscene phone calls (3.1%), and no contact order violation (2.3%). Over half (55.9%) of all cases prosecuted as stalking were dismissed, and one-third (32.4%) were found guilty.

10 Charges per Offender Between 2005 and 2010, 19,464 different offenders were charged with a domestic violence protection order violation, no contact order violation, attempted strangulation, stalking, and/or domestic violence assault/battery. Criminal history records were not obtained to determine if other types of criminal charges were brought against offenders. However, the following information provides an indication of whether or not offenders charged with a domestic violence related charge commonly are involved in further domestic violence incidents. It should be kept in mind, however, that within the six years studied, offenders could have moved out of state. Of these offenders: 75.3% had only one case (among the five types studied) filed against them. 24.7% had multiple charges, up to 18 separate case filings over the course of six years.

Offenders charged with a domestic violence protection order violation had the second highest average per offender (mean 2.4). Offenders with domestic violence assault/battery charges had the fewest average (mean1.7) court filings per offender. Offenders found guilty of a felony had slightly more filings per offender than those found guilty of a misdemeanor (1.6 compared to 1.4). Offenders charged with a felony and acquitted had fewer average filings against them (mean 1.3) than those found guilty (mean 1.6) or those where the charges were dismissed (mean 1.5).

11 Age of Offender Offenders charged with stalking (mean age 35.8) tended to be older than offenders with other charges. Offenders of attempted strangulation and no contact order violations were slightly younger. The age of offenders differed by case outcome. Between 2005 and 2010, 47.8% of juvenile cases were dismissed and 43.0% were found guilty. Offenders acquitted of the charge were on average four years older than those found guilty (age 36.1 compared to age 32.6). Offenders whose charges were dismissed averaged age In addition, those adjudicated for a felony were older than those prosecuted for a misdemeanor (34.3 compared to 32.8). For the third table on this page, all the offenses were reclassified using crime category codes from the National Incident Based Repository System (NIBRS). The list includes all Idaho charges according to what the case was prosecuted as. Coded this way, most offenses were prosecuted as aggravated assault, and the average age of offenders was Younger offenders were more often charged with theft from building (mean age 20.0), curfew/loitering/ vagrancy (mean age 22.0), drunkenness (mean age 26.5), drug equipment violations (mean age 27.0), driving under the influence (mean age 28.8), liquor law violations (mean age 29.3), and kidnapping/abduction (mean age 29.2). Older offenders were prosecuted for weapon law violations (mean age 41.6), forcible fondling (mean age 38.0), trespass of property (mean age 36.0), and nonviolent family offenses (mean age 35.2).

12 Juvenile Offenders Between 2005 and 2010, a small portion of total cases filed were against juveniles. A higher proportion of stalking and domestic violence protection order violation cases were filed against juveniles than other charges studied.

13 Magistrate and District Court The following information is taken from Idaho Supreme Court Annual Reports between Domestic violence cases include all civil protection order cases filed and domestic relations include divorce, child custody, and visitation cases. For Magistrate Court, the number of domestic relations cases between 2005 and 2011 increased by 12.3%. On the other hand, the number of domestic violence cases decreased by 13.5%. Therefore, the current trend from 2005 is towards fewer civil protection orders, but more divorce, child custody and visitation cases. A few cases were handled by the District Court as appeals. Over the course of seven years, an average of 6.1 domestic violence cases (civil protection order) and an average of 83.1 domestic relations (divorce, child custody and visitation) cases were handled per year.

14 Police Reports The following information details the number of incidents and arrests handled by police between 2005 and There were 5,880 reported victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) in 2010 and 3,528 victims of reported family violence (FV). Similar to court filings, reported victims of IPV decreased by 7.9% between 2005 and 2010; family victims decreased by 5.3%; and victims involved in other relationships with the offender decreased by 12.5%.
