Balos Interviewed on WCCO TV

Professor Beverly Balos was interviewed on WCCO television commenting on the battered husband defense of lawmaker Rep. Mark Olson who is on trial for abusing his wife. Professor Balos observed that "battered husbands" are not a widespread social problem and while it is not unusual for a defendant to assert self-defense it is unusual for a male defendant to claim he is being battered by his female partner.
