Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

22,125 Letters Sent So Far

We, the undersigned, are writing in hopes of bringing to your attention a dire misjustice that is occuring in our state as well as many others across the US. Laws inacted to protect the victims of the vile crime of domestic violence are being misused by both citizens as well as law enforcement, and in this process innocent men's lives are being destroyed. In most states, the burden of proof is being thrown out and the simple word of the acuser is being taken without question, many times without the accused even being allowed to speak. True victims of domestic violence, some of whose names you will find below, find this to be deplorable. Not only can a woman falsely accuse a man of domestic violence without fear of consequence, but the accused man has no voice against her. The accuser can be a mentally disturbed individual using such laws to exact her revenge against a man who simply does not want to be in a relationship anymore, and her word is automatically taken, even when no evidence is in place. The man in such cases is automatically arrested, injunctions are automatically set in place, and even if he is able to prove his innocence in court he has lost months of his life due to the fact that she cried wolf. Worse yet are the cases of these innocent men who are poor and have no means to hire private attorneys. Their public defenders assume they are guilty and therefore do only the bare necessities to be their legal voice.We are not in any way asking for a revocation of the laws that protect true victims of domestic violence. Our wish is that these laws be revisited and indications made to to allow for criminal and civil prosecution when someone, whether male or female, has misused these laws in a vindictive and cunning way. We also would ask that law enforcement officers, public attorneys, and judges be forced to recognize the precept that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, in the cases of domestic violence accusations, the opposite is true. An example of this is that of a 20 year old Florida resident who made the bond that was set for him, only to be picked up the very next day without provocation. The acuser in this case simply told the court she was afraid. He had done nothing in terms of trying to contact her or see her, and was not without several witnesses the few short hours he was free. Something must be done to prevent those who would lie about being a victim of domestic violence from continuing to do so. If it is not, our prisons will be overrun with innocent men and our streets will be controlled by the women who sent them there.

My partner has tried on several occasions to have me arrested for DV. I prosecuted her in one case & obtained a conviction on DV. I am living proof that this mis-justice is alive & well in our court system.
The issues with our legal system need to be addressed as a party and not as a sole individual. .if we all contribute (and there is bunch of us) what we can. We can make a difference. .my e-mail is tonykirk60@gmail.com
This hits very close to home!!
My husband has gone through this not once but twice, the first time was in 2011, after asking his neice to leave his home several times she became violent, attacked him, he grabbed her by the neck and told her to get out, 2hours later he was being arrested, six months later the case was dropped after his neice failed to show up for court, my husband refused to plea bargain and wanted to go to trial. Monday sept 15th my husband was arrested again on the same charge, now we must go through this ordeal all over again, we can't afford an attorney, our only assett is personal items and a1982lincoln town car, we own no jewelry and could probably get 1,000 for the contents in my husbands apartment, i recently began reading dave ramseys book and started saving. Luckly for him I had 650.00 in savings it took 1000 to bond out, I wrote the bondsman 2postdated checks, for the remaining amount.keep us in your prayers
I am going through this right now, I was arrested because my wife said that i physically picked her up from my bed threw her over my sholder, drug her down the hallway, and physically threw her out the front door on to the front pourch. She also clamed i had been drinking and i had a gun and she was scared of what i was going to do to her and our children, when the police got to my house i was imeditly arrested, no gun on me or wepon what so ever, was giving a pbt and blew 0.00. Also she never had a mark on her and the police stated that in there report.
I obtained a copy of the audio video of when the police questioned us and when she was asked if she was assaulted she infact says " no" " i mean i dont have any marks on me"
After this i filed for divorce and after doing so she obtained a ppo claming that i was always abusive to her, this was eventually terminated
The domestic violance was redused to a disorderly person and will be off of my record after 12 months
Two years ago she filed a divorce agianst me and clamed i was abusive to our son as well as abusive to her, she got a ppo then as well and then she had it dismissed and wanted to be back together
I have alot of proof of her lies and no one will do anything

Well I am married and during heated arugments there can be a lot said. I don't have any defense so I trusted I could call the cops to defend me and educate my husband on respect for women. I was tired and just getting off from work. They police were taking to long and there was no violence so I called and told them nevermind I was leaving. So I left a month later my husband comes to my job and hands me a report that he didn't understand because he is not even from America. My month dropped as he explained that he had lied to the police and didn't remember to well because he was intoxicated. All I wanted was someone to defend me on respect for women. I have a case open and I am very confused and hurt that the police took a report from someone that does not speak good English and was under the influence and was able to lie. He told them I had scratched him which was a scratch from his work that day. He wrote a letter to the DA stating he was intoxicated and was not aware that he was pressing charges due to the language barrier. Now I am looking for a lawyer to help me because I do not want this on my record or to have to go to jail for something I did not do or for any violence that never occurred. I was not even there to defend myself against his story. I assumed and trusted that it was not a problem to call during an argument. Now I am the one with the charge and I am scared.
