Davidson County Assistant District Attorney Ana Escobar spoke to NewsChannel5 about the uptick in instances of domestic violence that typically surround the holiday season. Escobar said she talks with about 30 domestic violence cases during a typical week, but around holidays like Christmas and even Easter, there is a surge in occurrences. In Nashville alone, there have been 13 confirmed domestic violence homicides in 2017. Escobar warns that children who are a witness to domestic violence are twice as likely to become victims or abusers themselves.
