This week, the New York Time featured an article entitled, “N.H.L. Suspends Kings’ Voynov After Arrest on Domestic Violence Charges.” Slava Voynov is a professional hockey player for the Los Angeles Kings and a member of the Russian Olympic team. Late Sunday night, a neighbor called the police after hearing a woman screaming and crying. Voynov’s girlfriend was hospitalized and Voynoy was arrested and taken into custody.

 

By 10:32 a.m. Monday morning, the N.H.L. released a statement announcing that Voynoy was suspended indefinitely pending a formal investigation. The organization commented that allowing Voynoy to continue to play “would create a substantial risk of material harm to the legitimate interests and/or reputation of the league.”

 

Throughout the last few months, domestic violence has received extensive media coverage. After the N.F.L. was sharply criticized for it’s mishandling of the accusations against Ray Rice, professional sports teams have reacted more assertively to accusations of domestic violence.

 

Statistics show that 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence during their lifetimes. Every year, more than 3 million children witness domestic violence in their homes. Without help, girls who witness domestic violence are more vulnerable to abuse as teens and adults. Without help, boys who witness domestic violence are far more likely to become abusers of their partners and/or children as adults, thus continuing the cycle of violence in the next generation.

 

Are you a victim of domestic abuse and considering filing for an Order of Protection or divorce? In the alternative, are you being wrongly accused of domestic violence in an Order of Protection that was filed for retaliatory reasons?
