In California, you can dismiss a conviction for wife beating by merely spending a weekend at the Holiday Inn attending a seminar. ABC News investigates how the courts deal with men who beat women. Even when court-ordered programs for abusive men are well run and have a record of success, nothing happens to those who don't show up. And what's worse, many judges don't seem to care, even when the no-show rate approaches 75 percent. (Feb. 2, 1995)
