EAST TEXAS - Those who deal with domestic abuse everyday say as the economy gets worse so does the violence.
Susan Thompson with the East Texas Crisis Center says their number are up right now.
"Comparing it to last year, it has increased, there has been probably about 50—percent of an increase of our clients".
