Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

21,523 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.

After being in a relationship with a pathological liar and opportunist who happens to be mother to one of my sons. I have been through arrests that were inflated due to lies of domestic violence. In order to get out of jail being impoverished I had to enter a plea. After entering a plea of guilt so that Childrens services taking my son I was released. When my son's mother realized that I was not intending on pursuing a marriage with her propagated another arrest against me. Swat team extracted me from the house based on (pleasing to a prior offense) violating my civil rights and incarcerating me in the excess of 50 days and not hiring an attorney to represent me. All of my evidence wasn't presented in open court to face my accuser. Instead I was scheduled to a hearing in domestic relations court where the judge allowed my accuser to read her testimony off a piece of paper. While in this court I asked my accuser to confess to an account of her saying that "I'm emotional and can rally the troops and hang someone at the stake!" She admitted and the judge in this court still ajudicated a CPO of 5years against me to stay away from my son 400 ft. I was returned to county, and have written down many other accounts in my defense, and had motorized affidavit for court. Common pleas court judge dismissed my charges without prejudice, and I was released from jail (homeless). My accuser moved to Seattle ,WA and how I found this out after a year of freedom. She had her father contact me for the purpose of calling my son who is upset and depressed wanting to know where I am. I contacted the court and was told that the CPO was against me and not my accuser. My accuser then began contacting me via VIOP services (voice over internet protocol) and I haven't the resources to hire my own counsel let alone present my evidence to the various courts that supports my rights being violated.
We tried to help my brothers girlfriend by giving her a place to stay when she had nowhere else to go. There were rules that she continued to break. When my brother finally told her to leave, all she had to do was to falsely accuse him and the police and justice system has treated him like a full on abuser. My brother has never done anything but try to love her - love - the bad apples are now taking away our right to love and to care about our fellow human being. How fair and "free" is that?
I've been falsely accused in Numerous cases by an ex girlfriend that plead guilty to stalking and harassment charges(stalking me) and failed urinalysis for crystal meth but for some reason the DA in Albuquerque keeps filing charges.

I've been found not guilty by a jury in one so far. The system is completely broken. The detective that investigated the case even testified in all of the pretrials in my favor but they are just out for blood.

The legal fees to try to fight and keep my freedom have exceeded $40k and are only rising.

I've lost work, been slandered in public in someones sick obsessive game. Now i'm at risk of going to jail for the rest of my life because I wont plea out for crimes I didnt commit.

I wish someone could help me make the state of New Mexico, City of Albuquerque just attempt to seek justice.

You have allowed us to share our stories, our feelings and given hope that something might actually be done. Yet recently I am left to wonder. I notice other posts are allowed that do not specifically have to do with False allegations leading to PFA's . We have given you our names and e-mail addresses. Please share more with us!
I am a victim of VAWA.
In Feb of 2011 I left my then wife because she is a full blown alcoholic. From Feb to May I had my 3 year old son almost every night, because this was her opportunity to party 7 days a week. Until one Sunday night he cried because he didn't want to leave my house..
After that I was blackmailed by having to pay her to see my son. She called me one afternoon and asked if I wanted to take him that evening. I said of course, and immediately drove over there. When I got to her house, she had changed her mind. She told me I couldn't have him. This was the 4th time she had done this to me. So I was standing on the parking 50 from her standing at her doorway. I calmy asked her 3 times to please let me have my son so I could leave. She repeatly said no. So I told her I am sick of this s**t, I'm going g to take you down in court you bi**h. I got in my truck and went home.10 min later I was arrested for a verbal domestic assault. I shouldn't have called names but there was no abuse or threats. She made up a huge lie to the police and I didn't even get a chance to defend myself or tell them what really happened. So after 28 weeks of batterers edu action classes, 2 years probation and thousands in fines and court costs. I am a convi ted domestic abuser and can no longer carry a gun.
Was need to change and these false accusing woman are only hurting other woman who are really being beaten and abused. Very sad
It's a terrible thing!
