Doris never thought she would be abused.

Doris, a mother of two, says she regularly dealt with domestic violence situations in her job as a member of a sheriff department's special response team. Because of her job, her firearms training and her perception of her own strength, she never considered that she'd be a victim of that kind of violence.

When she first married her husband, Jaime, Doris says the relationship was perfect. "He was just this charming, wonderful man," she says.

Then after three years, Doris says they began fighting more frequently, especially about sex. She says he accused her of not loving him and of having an affair. She says he also demanded that she perform sex acts she wasn't comfortable with.
