Former Las Vegas Detective Chris Baughman says his best friend's mom was a victim.

"I was over his house when I was 12, and she was dragged out of the house and beaten. There wasn't much I could do at the time, so I had a rude introduction into this culture." - Christopher Baughman
The seminar was presented by the Women's Center of East Texas.
