Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

28,173 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.

In this case its the other way around. My wifes ex boyfriend is on probation n has Beaten my now wife a few times before we got married n he has used his TRO to his advantage to Mk himself look good n us look bad because we have several charges on him so he has retaliated by falsely accusing us of several charges which we are out on bail his Name is Juan Cruz from Passaic NJ and courts are being taken place in Paterson NJ. Two yrs of this. We have had enough. Sergio n Lindsay Rivera.

I was falsely accused again by my ex-boyfriend and because of his false allegation towards me. I spent 28 days in jail. I don't understand how they arrest me on hearsay without viable proof. Thank God for cameras because that's my proof that I didn't do or go to where my ex said I want. His trial starts soon and my husband and I have been falsely accused numerous times including what my ex's girlfriend had accused us of things as well. Where is the Justice if people are going to jail for being wrongly convicted when they should investigate. Do they do that no. Hopefully the pro bono attorney appointed to me will speak up and do her job. My mother-in-law will be coming to court on my behalf. Where my mother-in-law resides has cameras and the director is trying to get me the footage. Plus I have my GPS history saved on my cell. As far as innocent til proven guilty. Thats a bunch of bs. It's more like guilty til innocent. My ex is a vindictive human being and has retaliated numerous times trying to scare my husband and I to drop charges. Thats not going to happen because a lil over 2 years back n forth to court. We are so overwhelmed by what these two have done to my husband and I.
I think that if it is found that the accuser lied they should face the same punishment the accused was facing. I have had my children taken from me over false testaments. what ever happened to innocent till proven guilty.
I would like to add that anyone male or female in any position can be an abuser, and take advantage of the laws to protect the innocent. I would like to see anyone responsible for falsely accusing anyone be held accountable .
Shasta Co. needs to look at both Parents back grounds and not just the accused. Reform- Family Law and Father's Rights..
