Virginia Valdez, 72, attacked her 62-year-old husband Cesar Valdez in 2011 whilst they were in a divorce process.

The couple, who had been married for 32 years, was getting intimate in the bedroom on the day of the attack.

Mrs Valdez claimed she was going to clean her teeth but returned with the scissors, but her husband was able escape the attack with a cut on his penis.

Mr Valdez stemmed the flow of blood with towels, called an ambulance and telling the operator: "B***h tried to cut my d**k off."

However Mr Valdez has express his dissatisfaction about criminal’s justice system when it comes to domestic violence where the victim is a man, he feels they has double standards

"I am here in front of you today to emphasize that male spouses can also be victims of domestic violence, but in some cases, men are afraid to talk for fear of ridicule or for fear of being labelled as some sort of freak or a wimp," he told ABC.

 Attorney Gloria Allred, who represented Mr Valdez, held up a pair of heavy-duty scissors and said: "There was a lot of blood coming out of his penis as a result of her attack on him."

"He feels that if he had been a woman victim of domestic violence that the case would not have been permitted to be delayed for so long and that the punishment for Virginia would have been harsher," she said outside court.

While the criminal trial is over, the two ex-spouses still have some civil litigation battle.
