Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

21,719 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.

I was falsely convicted of domestic violence - my 10 year old son was taken from me and turned over to an abusive alcoholic ex wife. She used the system as a tool - it was very easy for her to accomplish her vindictive agenda. My life has been destroyed by lies and the court system.
I too have been a victim of false allegations and actually was able to show proof that no violence had occurred and no I ament danger to follow , so I was able to go home, but now , are u guys ready for this, my ex wife married this guy and I knew he was a bad guy but what am I supposed to do? We have been divorced for 2 1/2 years now and to be honest , I was missing her but never knew how to contact her without putting her in harms way so I wasn't able to contact her, I had givin up on those thoughts , but one evening I got a instant message from her and she was asking me questions and they started getting kinda personal , I kept listening and she asked me if I still loved her , and I said yes, she then asked , could she come home? I was really freaking out , I said sure , and she absolutely ran from that place to be safe with me and in the week of planning her move out from her new marital home , she was met by a police officer and was served a EPO, couldn't get non of her things and was put out in the street because this yellow bellied coward lied and said she slapped him, pulled his 14 yr old boy with major mental issues by the arm and said she told his twin daughter that she was ugly when she woreskeup, , if you knew these people , everyone would say really? No way , but yes way , the court system said they saw where more violence could occur so they awarded a DVO that lasts for 3 years and that means no firearms , and that means no hunting for my friend, so people of the earth , can u hear me ? This protection order business is a joke most of the time, there would be a lot less domestic violence if there was a Penalty for filing a fraudulent EPO, meaning if u file a fraudulent EPO on someone and they had overwhelming proof ur lying and trying to abuse the system, u could spend a week in jail urself, I think if that would be looked at by our elected leaders and make something have a consequence for ur actions , I'll bet a lot more men will keep the right to keep and bare arms and won't be takin away from there kids and some of these vindictive women and some me will get some of there own medicine and I think there should be some type of cost to following thru with EPO , that would stop a lot of wrongfully accused men and a few women for being victims of the upside down governmental jurisdiction in keepin a good man down and believe it or not women too cause there are little me that hide behind these epo's and only did the EPO so that he still had control over this woman, we are goin back to court to get the DVO reversed if that doesn't happen , we will go to the court of appeals and show this cowardly act that women play , I'll keep y'all posted to see if we can get this gals gun rights back b4 deer season, she has cried on my shoulder because her soon to be ex says he won't drop the DVO and that could be a reality but I'm hoping the people will see how badly this emergency protective orders are abused and used solely for revenge it isn't
A False 3rd degree Domestic Violence Charge ended in a "non-conviction" in court. However, my arrest was made public on Mugshots.com. I was harassed by strangers, denied apartment rentals, my name dragged through the mud.
My son was falsely accuse of domestic violence and the mother stated that she was afraid of him because he is so tall in height but yet this woman wants him to pick of their child outside her apartment..go figure. Just a way for some women to get back at men and get their way in court. Its awful and this needs to stop. This same woman has called my son's job and made threats against him yet he cannot get a PO.
I am going though this now. My soon to be ex-wife took out a dvpo on me (with false accusations) , i was served with it, went to court; she did not so it was thrown out. Then she went and re-filed the exact same affidavit and is trying to run it again.(she did it before in Pennsylvania and withdrew everything in court) any advice from anyone? How should i go about handling this? On top of that her boy friend and new childs' father who lives with her has/had a assult with a deadly weapon against her and last month a assault on a female charge... (who needs a dvpo on who)
DVTRO's and DVRO's, when used for "Ill Intent", Personal and or Vindictive purposes are some of the most devastating Misuses and Abusive of Protective Laws; complete Miscarriages of Justice
My big brother is going through this now i cant stop sheding tears because of the pain...i feel like the police need to start lookin at both sides instead of one..i really need help shouldn't no one be treated like this not even my worst enemy. ..heart hurts bad...
I had a false allegation of domestic violence ordered against me on June 19, 2006. It was based on lies, but the local sheriffs office and State Attorney's office didn't care that he was a covert lying narcissist. I doubt they ever heard of the term, in fact. I made the mistake of moving back in with him in September 2008.

Last year, on July 23, 2013 he, with the help of his conniving sister, literally abandoned me. Left me without transportation and tried to have the electricity cut off. However, the electric company told him it was unlawful to do so. I am disabled, because of him and have been fighting to get my life, reputation and sanity restored. It has been over a year and while, life goes on for him. I am still struggling from deep scares of betrayal, lies and his continued smear campaign against me.

I thank you for the opportunity to speak out and stand with other true victims of abuse. You see, it isn't just women who abuse the system, but men, as well.
