Restraining Order Victims and Victims’ Advocates Speak Out

Posted on August 23, 2011

The brief, unedited accounts and pleas for justice and legislative representation that follow are drawn from an online petition titled, “Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence.” They represent its most recent four months’ responses only. Worthy of note is that at least 25% of responses are from women (some themselves victims of restraining order abuse) and that all of these are critical of the status quo. Defenders of restraining orders aver that their abuse is rare and inconsequential. Readers may conclude the truth is otherwise.

Craig M. from Newnan, GA writes on July 31, 2011:

2003 she filed a TPO on false accusations, the Judge order No Contact days later she placed a chainsaw in her own driveway, called the Police and back to court we went. She wrote a letter to the Judge prior to court date, allthough I had proof of my where-abouts at the time of the incident, I was never given an oppurtunity to present it and off to jail I went in handcoffs.

Jennifer H. from Cockeysville, MD writes on July 30, 2011:

My husband has been dealing with false allegations of abuse, illegal drug use, etc. for 18 years. His ex-wife has borderline personality disorder and lives to have a new audience for her tired routine. Must husband is a great father and husband and has had virtually no recourse other than to hope people (teachers, coaches, doctors, etc.) believe him and see his ex-wife for the scum that she is. It is abhorrent that she can take us to court at will on unsubstantiated claims. He has never been found guilty (thank God), but the emotional, mental and physical toll this has taken on him is awful.

Ashley G. from Smyrna, TN writes on July 27, 2011:

I am currently going through unlike most if not the same but similar situation. I was arrested twice for domestic violence. My ex-boyfriend filed two false reports in two separate counties claiming that I harmed him. I am 28 years old. I never had a criminal history. He is 40 years old. He has a history of harassment and domestic assault. I broke up with him and in attempt to gain revenge he made up two false reports. WIth his history of harassment and domestic assault he was able to manipulate the system to his own liking. I was not given the opportunity to give a confirmatory statement and I think its unfair for the police to just lock someone up just because a person claim that you done something to them. I do have proof and still waiting to go to court on both of these charges. I pray that this stop because it’s not fair for innocent people to suffer due to someone’s vindictive ways. Luckily, I am able to prove my innocence against my accuser. I live in Tennessee and the court system is pretty screwed up. I am going to fight against this not just for myself but for every person that is going through this whether male or female. Wrong is wrong and Right is right!

L. M. from Los Angeles, CA writes on July 26, 2011:

I have been arrested twice for domestic violence in Los Angeles. I told my wife I didn’t want to be married anymore due to her verbal and physical abuse. I told her I wanted a divorce. I was arrested April 2010 when I was the one who called the officers, the 911 operator stayed on the phone with me you could hear the hits I was taking to the head and the jaw and the glass that was being thrown at me while I sat on the curb. She put make up under her eye and I was arrested. She came to visit me a the jail the very next morning, no make up and no black eye. She then told the police I assaulted her June 2010 when I was no where near her, I am now going to court for that in a different city only because I plead no contest to the April 2010 accusation in order for me not to loose my job, but they list me a convicted. She stalked me and harressed me at my new home and my place of employment. I was able to get a restraining order placed on her for 3 years. She even lied to the judge on the day the restraining order was issued and told the judge that I tried to punch her when she went to my job and chased me around and hit me, little did either of us know it was being video taped and that’s what I used in court, 2 seperate videos showing her assaulting me. These laws have to change and punish these woman who lie on us me and ruin our records and reputation because their scorned or unable to let go. I am stressed, depressed, and scared the system will once again believe her lies. I don’t know what to do other than to pray.

I was arrested because I told mty ex wife I was done with her abuse and driking and driving. I was arrested the next day and have never been able to get my property back. I went through months of her telling me if she did not get her way she would take everything from me and sleep with other men. She did it all and I still can not get my injunction removed even though she had no evidence.My life has been ruined by her and Judge Shawn L Briese.

There are way too many false acusers out there!

Women and children of abuse need to be able to report that abuse, but, there has to be a high price for making false acusations. The way it is right now in this country. If you got a grudge, “Theres a Hotline for that”. The government will harass anyone you are mad at for free!

this is going on right now and we all know the woman is lying. this is not justice! please put an end to this by also arresting her! this is control on the womans part which is also mental and emotional abuse. she calls police all the time! she should get in trouble and be fined. there should be a law and she should do time!

I am going thru this exact nightmare right now…the mother of my boys got heavily addicted to percocet and oxycontin to the point of lieing to her associates , my family , students , that I was a wife beater. i tried to remove the boys from her direct supervision and told her that i would help her get rehabilitated and that once she could prove she stopped her drug abuse for a substantial lenght of time ( 90 days ) that we could go back to the 50/50 custody agreement . instead she hit herself ( or had someone else do it ) and called the police and told them I hit her. right now , my life is in judicial limbo and I am seriously worried that the court is going to believe her due to the laws that are currently in place.i pray to God that something can be done with the serious abuse of these laws to gain leverage in custody battles , not to mention destroying the lives of two innocent children…and mine

A neighbor harassed my wife and I for a year before using the court as his latest tool to stop me from making legal complaints about his decrepit property. We had to move. For gods sake we have authorities to handle criminal conduct, let them do it. Remember, it is “supposedly” better that 10 guilty persons evade conviction rather than 1 innocent person be convicted.

Randi H. from Trenton, NJ writes on July 17, 2011:

Not only do women do this to men but men also do it to women. It happened to me and my ex husband falsely accused me of hitting him when i didn’t touch him. The motive is to have the upperhand in custody of the child/children.

I am a former victim of domestic violence and have always supported the laws we have to protect the victims of DV. However, I have seen unethical women abuse the laws and these laws were not made to victimize anyone.

Chris T. from Battle Creek, MI writes on July 14, 2011:

I met this girl in 04 eveything was perfect. she pushed that we had a kid and in april 06 we had a boy. that’s when the lies started. she started accusing me of violence toward her and my son even going as far as saying i tried to poison my son. six months later she left with our son and would not let me see him and she started calling him by another name. she has got everyone convinced i beat her the state of michigan wont let me pay child support because then i would have the right for visitation. so while trying to save for a good lawyer for custody, she now has accused me of home invasion and domestic violence. I turned myself in after getting letter from court (and never being questioned) seen a judge and was locked up with a $10,000 bond and I’m facing 20 years. I DID NOTHING. I’ve got a court appointed attorney he wasn’t doing much until I finally convinced him I would not take there plea deal and now I’m waiting for a trial (6 months now). meanwhile she is still harassing me and spreading more lies. HELP.

Gregory R. W. from Bushkill, PA writes on July 14, 2011:

I brought my sons up to respect women and not put their hands on them, Unfortunatley the table was turned when he pushed his girlfriend when she attacked him while in his sleep, beating him on the head with his cell phone, she called the police said he pushed her and was put out of his house with only the clothes on his back in the middle of december. Then the nightmare began with the court system. A FEMALE judge in Lackawanna County Pa. heard the accuser say he provokes my rage and yeah I did hit him, HER (THE JUDGE’S) response was I would of hit him too. BE ADVISED this is what is going on in our court system. Predjudice Judges who are PRO ABUSE if a woman is doing it.

Linda G. from Mount Airy, NC writes on July 8, 2011:

As a victim of DV I am outraged that people will use the system to claim they have been abused just for the personal gain! I am watching alot of people hurt from false accusations being made against my childhood friend/fience! It has cost him his children, his reputation and work. All because his childrens mother claims he hurt his chilren and her. he proved those allegations weren’t true and that she had lied under oath, and was still convicted. The children are being hurt physically and emotionally and yet the courts still won’t listen. I feel that there should be something done about this, but it feels as though nobody will listen!

Anonymous from Plymouth, MA writes on July 6, 2011:

This can happen to a man or a woman. The abuse of this system is outrageous, not just by the abuser but by everyone who encourages these women to lie. It is unconstitutional that you can be charged without proof, absolutely no proof. The person who lies wins in these cases sooooooooooooooooooooo sad!

Timothy C. from Mansfield, TX writes on June 28, 2011:

I was arrested, falsely for Domestic Violence, and a month later arrested for Violation of a MOEP. To date, the Violation of the MOEP has been dismissed, and the prosecutor for the origanal DV charge wants to dismiss the case, just taking a little longer due to political reasons. The problems are far reaching, as I am in the middle of a custody battle over our 7 year old son. Because of theses accusation I can only see my son supervised. I wish to have her prosecuted for filing a false police report, but I don’t expect to find any relief, even though the proof the she filed a false police report is part of the court record.

Tracy G. from San Antonio, TX writes on June 25, 2011:

i have a brother that is a thief and a heroin addict. he is one of those people that steal copper . long story short . he left his stolen copper in the front yard . i had my 10 yr old son help me pick up the mess we put it in his room. my brother got mad . he went some where and hurt himself then said i did it my son was with me the whole time i never even touched him . the law prevents police officers to make the decision if its true or not. even if it is obvious that the person is high and out of their mind. THIS LAW NOT ONLY HURTS INNOCENT PEOPLE. IT QUESTIONS THE INTEGRITY OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AND OUR GOVERNMENT. my son in which i have been teaching to call the police if he is ever in trouble . has just witnessed the police arrest his father while being innocent . what kind of impression does that make on a child? all i did was pick up garbage in the front yard and i have assault charges on me.

Anonymous from Toledo, OH writes on June 24, 2011:

A relative of mine was falsely accused of domestic violance. He has filed for divorice and that just got “resolved” (over one year) but not child visitation that is limited due to the D.V. charge. His wife’s cousin ( a grown Man) hit my relatives son (pre-teen) and knocked him on the floor. He has testified to the fact that my relative did not hit anyone.when my relative (the father) came into the room and asked if he hit him , his wife went after him and tried to push him back into another room while screaming at him. She called the police and , of course they took him away. He has told the police, and lawyer & prosecutor that the man hit his son and no one would listen to him and no charges filed. Also this cousin left before the police came and the wife told police no one else was there. This is not the first time she has filed false charges. She previously filed charges that my relative was not supporting her and their son and my relative was actually living with them and supporting the family he was only one even working. She has several family members living with them and he was paying all the bills. After the divorice the courts gave her a very large alimony plus child support. It is far more than he has left to live on. He has $750 a month for rent and all living expenses. They are all from another country. She told the court that she can not work because she can’t drive and that was acceptable to the court. There is so much more, all unbelievable. The lawyers want him to take a plea bargin when he has not commited any crime. I think this is a crime by it’s own right.

Tamara S. from Baltimore, MD writes on June 23, 2011:

Not fair at all. I am a woman that was falsely accused by my fiances ex wife. She also threatens to say I molested their son. There is nothing I can do about a protective order that she used false allegations against me to obtain. There are no rights for people that go thru this. The DA wont prosecute a person that commits perjury. This is sad..very sad!

I am a firefighter. I was with a woman for 3 months. She was very insecure. This caused a lot of problems between us. I left her and she threatened to kill herself. I went to her job to possibly have her baker acted. I wanted to talk to her to find out if she really planned to harm herself. She asked me to follow her to a coffee shop so we could talk. On the way she flagged down a police officer and told him she was afraid for her safety because I was stalking her. I was arrested, lost my job and spent the night in jail. The DA didn’t press charges, however, now she has filed an injuction for protection and accused me of holding her hostage and domestic violence. I would never do anything to hurt a woman. I’m 40 years old and have never been in any trouble. The government has a tuff task. We have to protect our abused women and can’t discourage them from coming forward. But this is a horrible position for a man that is falsley accused.

Anonymous from Austin, TX writes on June 17, 2011:

I am still struggling to believe what is happening to me right now after my 15 year old son failed another drug test and then subsequently falsely accused me of actually punching him with a closed fist in the eye. I am or was the custodial parent of 10 years with exclusive rights and an ex who would only visit him for a few hours most Thursday and every other weekend – for 10 years I have done it all, and that includes holding him accountable for his actions.

Now, he has moved to his mom’s (which is not a real issue, he needs a relationship with her) but changed schools and I am in the process of being prosecuted by the state for something I did not do so my dear son could evade the real issues of his drug problems.

When I was arrested over one and a half weeks later and thrown in jail, I kept thinking that sooner or later some rational adult would talk to me and see what was going on – but no, now I am in debt to a lawyer fighting to maintain my rights and have lost custody to the ex who wants me punished and is counceling the boy that he cannot tell the truth now because they will punish him for lieing. Wow.

This law has probably saved lives and makes sense in regards to the intent, but for those of us with NO history of domestic violence that did not even come close to their charges – it is a crime that could alter my life for being a parent and trying to hold a child in trouble with drugs accountable.

My family is going thru this right now. My husbands ex-wife, Rebecca Smith, has fasely accused him of child abuse. My husband and I both made a statement, along with our daughter. Nobody will listen to us. She makes this false claim and now jobs are in jeopardy. Not to mention that his ex wife is a police officer. Who does that? She knows the system and she knows how it can work in her advantage. She told his son to write something in his journal at school. Then DCFS was called in and an investigation was opened up. Not Once has DCFS called the father to get his side of the story….NOT ONCE! This is a police officer who does not followed a court ordered document of allowing her son to skype his dad twice a week and to have daily contact with his dad. She has prohibited this but yet nothing happens to her. But let me tell you she definitely keeps getting paid each month. It’s a classic case of parent alienation but the courts don’t want to hear that. We have documented evidence of this and the fact that she has violated a court ordered document. But does the legal system care? No.

Now the false claims of child abuse. My husband will be lucky if he ever gets to see his son again. Since the allegations she has not let my husband speak to his son.

Someone please help us!

Lauren R. from Pagosa Springs, CO writes on June 8, 2011:

I have to watch helplessly as my boyfriend suffers from his ex-girlfriend’s false accusation of his abusive nature. I have been with him for 3 years and not once has he showed that he ever deserved this. He is paying for her spiteful drunken comment to a buddy cop of hers from high school, which ended up in the STATE making a case against him. She did not even try to press charges, just tried to get sympathy and a restraining order to save some face. He was not even in the state at the time, he was with some friends in Utah. He got arrested when he got home and and was scared in to signing a plea bargain. Did I mention that her dad has been the mayor of this tiny town for 30 years? The whole idea of having the state involved in a case when false allegations were involved is insane! It is so frustrating for him to have to pay (quite literally) for a crime he did NOT commit. Women can be abusive as well. Have our civil rights been taken away from the men in Colorado and other “no tolerance” states? His ex-girlfriend has moved on with her life, gotten married and has a son and a life. She has apologized to him (many times in front of me) but, the damage is done. My boyfriend and I can’t even move to another state together because of his probation. His life and his name has been destroyed because of this. His rights have been taken away. He has to work all the time to keep up with all the different charges demanded by the state while still trying to take care of all his personal bills. Just to read the stories of the people effected by this is heart breaking. I just wish there was something that could be done.

This cost me $1,000 when my son’s girlfriend assused him of hitting her. My son 18 and GF 20, She placed a restraing order on him, than a week later the police finally finish their paperwork and came to our house and told him he needed to finish his paperwork. We both walked outside to talk to them, the next thing I see is them handcuffing my son. I should of pressed charges against this girl when she was sleep with him at 17. He has a clear record. She however does not. How does this work? She was the one forcing him to stay home from school and have sex, taking care of him. Once he turned 18, she told him he didn’t need to go to school, go to adult edd like she was doing. There should be a law agaist this!!

I have been arrested for DV when I wasn’t having the problem with my girlfriend I was in an argument with her young niece due to some smart mouth stuff she was saying and I asked her to leave my house several times and she would not so finally she goes and stands right outside my door running her mouth and I close my door and she starts pounding on my door which lead to me heading towards my door. At this time my girlfriend and my friend tried to hold me back from auguring with her niece to get her off of my property. During this time I was so mad both my girlfriend and friend got flung around trying to hold me back. I am a 280 pound man and weight lifter however I did not have the problem with my girlfriend it was her niece. During this time of making everyone leave I hear we are calling dudes over to fight and they got guns and I don’t own a gun all I had was a cigarette lighter gun and faked that I had one. She never calls the police this night to press any charges. The next day I go to my friends house to watch the super bowl and I come back home and notice that my door is broke and go into my room and see that my cell phone are missing. So she goes through my phones calls me and says who is this girl and how long have you been seeing her. I said bring my phones to me and if you don’t I will report them stolen so I do and nothing happens. So She tells me who is this girl remember you punched me and you better say you’re sorry or I’m going to the police. I say go to the police I never hit you and this is about you finding out about this girl and me telling you I’m going to leave you for her. So I leave out of town to visit a friend only to come back to my house to get arrest by the police and tell me I’m being arrested for domestic violence and a firearm. She tells me I’m sorry how do I drop it and I didn’t think it would be a big deal and I was mad about that girl why do you think I filed it 4 days after the fact. After this my stupidly by letting her come back to my house and everything is fine and she called to drop the charges and the officer tells her that she can’t. Then she goes around telling everyone I hit her behind my back and playing cool with me. So one night we go out and while we are leaving her brother makes a remark and another brother follows me outside trying to start trouble. We get back to my house and I said you know what it’s time for you to go because your nothing but trouble. She jumps up goes out side of my door and starts yelling I’m telling the police you have a gun in your house and you hit me. So she leaves and I get a phone call from my mom say that someone called her and told her that my girlfriend is at the police station with her mom trying to get me arrest that I threaten to kill her and her family and I put a gun to her and so she puts out a restating order. Since this she has called my phone private and sometimes not and sent text messages and there are roughly 60 calls and I have recordings. I just let

I am currently in the process of being accused of a criminal violent offense for something that my wife and myself do not believe has occurred. These laws put good families with great history at risk for divorce or mental and financial distress. I understand that they exist to protect those who are truly abused. I find any type of spousal abuse to be offensive, but the law in our state continues to prosecute even the best of people in order to get financial assistance. I have spent my life to build my good name and in a matter of seconds in the heat of the moment, one phone call and my entire career and reputation has been put into question. I have interacted professionally with thousands of people as a real estate agent and developer and I would encourage you to contact any of them as to the content of my character.

The domestic violence industry has become a money making machine in this country. It’s all about charging someone with the crime so that a state’s statistics will look good in order for them to receive grant money to aid in so called Family Advocacy agencies and for those charged with domestic violence to pay fines to fund the salaries of all the prosecutors, etc. needed to try these cases. They don’t care about the rights of anyone involved or how they are ripping families apart that are in these situations against their will. They don’t care if it was just an argument in which both parties are at fault…..they remove all of your rights and they invade and take over your life and neither party has any say about the proceedings. These laws are not tailored to fit every situation……It’s not one size fits all. Something must be done! There should be policies requiring law enforcement to make an arrest only when there is real, factual and physical EVIDENCE of domestic violence.

As for false allegations of domestic abuse: Innocent until proven guilty. As someone has already stated, let the criminal court handle evidence of abuse.

Sheila P. from Charlotte, NC writes on May 29, 2011:

About 5/6 out of 1/6 of dads are fine, loving fathers–absolutely no domestic violence. Unfortunately, so much attention is paid to the 1/6 that families are being abused by our courts. They prevent the child from having a meaningful relationship with BOTH parents when one is given sole custody & the other becomes a visitor. This is NOT in the child’s best interest. It’s long past time to modernize custody law to ‘PRESUMED SHARED PARENTING.” Evidence of abuse can be handled in criminal court.

Then played a fake scenario of domestic violence by inflecting a few small bruises on her arm and her foot and took pictures of them in past several years. She first went to a shelter with my 2 kids for no reason told officers I blocked her friend phone (they were interfering in our lives, telling her get divorced, take the kids to Iran). Then asked section 8 to give my voucher to her and HUD terminated me based on false allegations those fake pictures. Then after 1 month she pressed charge for the same fase allegations. She attacked me several years ago was arrested, jailed for domestic violence pleaded guilty and received 1 year probation, few years later she attacked me with a toolbox and permanently damaged my L-shoulder after surgery never been able to lay on it and still suffering from pain & discomfort. 3 years age threw a 20lb weight to my L-pinky and fractured it in 4 pieces I did not press charges because of my 2 kids plus she already had criminal record could stay in jail for long time.

This is costing our family big money. We either fight the wife’s false allegations or watch our brother go to jail for something he did not do. We proved it once in Georgia (judge did nothing to her after it was proven he didn’t do it and not one apology from the officers who roughed him up either in front of the elementary school no less) but she did it again in Florida. They throw him in jail at her whims (professional victim) and we pay big money to get him free. Kinda of hard to hold a job and pay her support at the same time. Something has to give. My nephew is going to need serious therapy by the time he reaches 18. Child Services is a joke. And do you know what is sickening, she has forged over $50,000 in forged Schedule II prescriptions in Georgia and it is like pulling teeth to get them to do anything to her. I’ve personally reported her to 4 different agencies and nothing. I am utterly sickened with the whole judicial system.

I was falsely accused and wrongfully convicted of a felony aggravated domestic assault based on hearsay.

I was denied the request for a polygraph from my inadequate public defender. I was trying to escape in my car and the next thing I new, I was accused of trying to run him over while backing up. He continues to try to meddle in my life on a regular basis with constant false accusations and being stuck on parole for another 4 years makes it hard. I have since married (1st time) and have had 2 more children (newborn & 17 month old). All he has to do is get me wrongfully charged with anything and I will get sent to jail while my 2 small boys lose their mother and noone seems to care. He has assaulted cops, committed a couple of burglaries and grand larceny and suffers barely any consequences while he continues this sick obsession with me.

Dan B. from Salt Lake City, UT writes on May 10, 2011:

The court system has become truly inundated with these types of false accusations thus depriving the ones who truly need the help from getting the assistance they need. Everything from resources, manpower and even public sentiment is strained to the breaking point. Worse is the effect it has on the children to see one parent falsely accused and put thru a system that has no checks and balances to judge ones guilt or innocence until months or years later. This current system presumes the person accused is guilty with little or no verifiable evidence other than one person’s statement.

Worse still is a system that then refuses to punish the person who makes false accusations even when it is blatantly clear that one person used the system for their personal motivations. When one uses the law for their personal gain it undermines the very foundation that the law was built on. The next generation of children who have now experienced this travesty 1st hand realize that there is no real justice, only that one can use the system to their advantage to get what they want.

If you want to truly change the system to make it work I would offer the following points concerning the issuance of No Contact/Protective orders:

1. Any protective order /No contact Order entered on behalf of one party be for both parties not just the one for whom it was entered. (This would prevent the party who asked for the protective order from abusing the system that was set up to protect the parties).

2. That if it is determined that one party makes false allegations against a former spouse that in a case that the party making the false allegations lose the custody of the children or be incarcerated according to the current laws for giving a false statement.

3. Require that BOTH parties attend a state sponsored course on what each party can and can’t do in accordance with any court issued No Contact/Protective Order. (This way both parties understand what contact is or is not allowed) and require both parties to pay for the course.

4. Stop the arbitrary checking of conditions of a No Contact/Protective order by the court on the forms by the court clerks. Require the court to provide a rational for the inclusion of each condition when they issue such an order rather than simply checking every box.

5. Re-evaluate what Domestic Violence is and what it is not in terms of the law. (Does a person sending an email asking how their kids are really rise to the level of domestic violence or constitute a violation of a no contact order?)

Nothing will change until the tools that are used to gain advantage in custody cases are reevaluated and modified so as not to give unfair or skewed perception to one party vs. the next. The laws that were originally set up to protect the victims have been hijacked by those with the means and understanding of how to use and abuse them for their personal motivations.

My son has been falsely accused by his wife. There is absolutely no proof what so ever. He has never been in any kind of trouble. The judge did not take this in consideration at all. Since his arrest she has posted on several sites about her new “relationship” and how happy she is. This new relationship began the night he was arrested. She had accused her first exhusband of the same thing. How can a woman make an accusation and the man be arrested without an investigation? The man is automatically looked upon as guilty. What happened to innocent until PROVEN guilty? Why isn’t there reprecussions for the woman who falsely accuses? I am the mother of 2 sons and it concerns me deeply that a female can simply do this. The man is put in jail, treated by the court as guilty before the trial, judged by those around them. Women who falsely accuse need to be held accountable! They should be required to pay court/lawyer fees. I am disgusted with our judicial systems handling of domestic violence accusations.

I agree with this article. As a police officer, I was arrested as a result of a dispute with my wife. She was completly upset with me and I did not know why at the time, while trying to find out why, she was going out the door ignoring my request. I closed the door with my foot from behind her, catching her hand in it. Her daughter flips out, runs next door, calls 911. My wife goes after her, and I stayed in the driveway, waiting on the county deputy to show. Meanwhile, the city dept. Chief that I worked for and the county Sheriff, did not like each othet at all. It was election year and what better political ad can you get than the headlines reading ” SHERIFF DEPUTIES ARREST CITY OFFICER FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE”. I knew I could have been gone before he arrived, but I had nothing to hide. Well, I rode in the front seat of the chief deputys’ suv and held his shotgun in my lap all the way to jail. My name smeared,My ten year career ruined, and all the fun of court just that fast,simple and stupid . My wife even told them that it was an accident that night and the next morning. The chief deputy told her he would charge her for filing a false report . She reminded him that SHE did not file ANY report at any time. And do you know after court, the prosecutor as well as the judges office told me.. “Had you been anyone else besides #1 an officer, #2 an officer for THAT city , and it was not election time, I gaurentee you would not have been charged with anything.” Well thats been exactly one year ago and I am in a career now making very near three times my police salary, my record is to be sealed in about a week, but the point is the life I worked for, took serious was TAKEN from me without a chance to hardly even say my name. Thanks to the dom. vio. act if 1991. I EARNED the DUTY of wearing that badge so the bastards I protected at night while they slept could RAPE ME the very next day. I am still a certified police officer for two more years and even though I constantly have a burn inside me to try to return to it (if someone will take me now. by the way, charge was reduced in court to just battery third, not domestic) ,I dont know if I could ever be as proud of my badge as I once was. Honor,Respect,and the will to “do whats right” has left a lot of officers and judges. Its more the case now of, ” we have got to find a way to makes some kind of arrest, we want money”.

Eight years ago I told my wife I wanted a divorce. Then she proceeded to beat me and I was hauled off to jail where she falsely accused DV and took it to trial. I was found guilty by court house and department of corrections employees that made up most of the jury.

While in state prison I met other Fathers that had been Alienated from their children for profit and greed . When I was released from prison my ex-wife accused me of conspiring to commit murder for hire. The D.A. tried to build a case out of it from just words out of lying mouth.

I was interrogated by DOJ. The homiced detectives in Reno Nevada, who did not know anything about the alleged plot to kill the ex, my son and the grandma. So after waiting to years for the homicide det. to show up from Reno, I decided to give them a call and spoke to Det. Alexson. He said he had not know anything about it and didn’t understand why he was not informed, when he had the police report in front of him.

I told him that I had been beaten, captured and enslaved by women and that it why it is so important for him to help me keep the feminist away from my ex wife when she dials 911 and do the investigation because my son needs a father.

The DOJ has been trying to get me to make a false confesion for 8 years. Oregon is not prosecuting mothers that falsely acuse Fathers. There is alot of money to be made in OR, keeping Fathers separated from their children. Conspiring to commit murder for hire carries a life sentence.

The transcripts of my trial have been alterd to make my accuser look like she told one story. I had a hearing in March 2011 to see if I can get a new trial and my ex mother-in-law testified that her daughter is pathalogical liar and has a history of being dangerous and violent to men. At my hearing the state has taken notice that she has lied about her the incident.

My ex and the state need to stop terrorizing my son and I and start minding their own business.

My daughters father said I abused my15 year old daughter because she wanted to run wild and did not like being on restriction so he filed a false restraining order. I too do not have the money to hire an attorney and am searching the web to find out how to appeal or ask for a new hearing. the only thing I can think of, in order to get a chance to tell my side of the story, is to go file for an order myself against the other party. I live in MD so the laws are different I am assuming. Prior to the restraining order he contacted Child Protective Services and they investigated and found no and closed the case. After that they filed for an order of protection even after the investigation proved no abuse. So he still has my daughter and there is nothing I can do.

Time after time after time, whenever the baby’s mother gets in the mood to cause problems for my son she calls the police and “claims” that he has assaulted her. Each and everytime the police are called, they care not to hear his side as to what really happened simply because all that really matters is that he is a man and she is a woman and that automatically makes him guilty. To prove my point, there was a time recently that this woman beat my son over the head with a night stick and the police were called. Needless to say, she was not arressted nor brought up on any type of charges what-so-ever. Yesterday was another day in court with the same false dv charges against my son. Of course because she is of the female gender and the “alleged” victim” she ruled the court. I am so tired of the bulls**t that the courts lets women get away with it’s crazy.
