Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

28,739 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.

This is happening to a friend of mine. His ex has called hubbard house and file a false police report saying he drove by her and scared her. He didn't drive by her, he hasn't seen her. He now had to hire an attorney and spend time going to court for something he didn't do. This is just an angry bitter woman trying to punish a man. It's sickening.
I had an ex boyfriend who I escaped an extremely abusive relationship with file a PFA against me while I was in another state. The courts granted him a temporary PFA without me being served or having any knowledge of it. Then when I finally returned to the city he filed it in, he used this PFA to lie to the police and file false charges against me claiming I violated the PFA when I have had no contact with him. This is a person who has almost killed me multiple times, and has threatened my family and friends. They were basically given a free pass through the legal system to continue to abuse and harass me, and now my freedom is at stake because of it. They completely made up a series of stories to the police, with the help of several shady characters. Now, the local prosecutors office is using the PFA as a basis for charging me with Burglary, when I have had no contact with this individual for almost a year now. This system has to be reformed, instead of protecting victim's you are allowing predators to prey on innocent people, and put their lives and freedom at risk. This often just serves as a gateway for jaded ex's to retaliate and seek revenge for being left by the person they were abusing. It is disturbing, and unacceptable.

I've read a lot of these stories and it's very heartbroken. You're wrongly being accused and nothing is being done about it. No one should be able to falsely file a report against someone and get away with it. And if it's that easy, well let's make the officers job a little more difficult by contacting anybody being accused. Find them by all needs necessary so they can be aware. Not unless you're being put in that situation then you'll realize what it feels like but before that happens, make a change.
Im experiencing the same situation. Girl (child's mother) get caught cheating with my baby in her possession. I go take my things out her house. Find a new girl. Then she go file a report saying I burglarized her house. Broke her windows. And stole kids items. Put sugar in her car tank on (8/07/2015) but her car go to the pound (8/17/2015) drivable without her fixing an engine. she say im Stalking her family when her brothers threatening me. Now filing child support charges against me. I have a report saying she tried to stab me. I have to go to court and more den likely I will be arrested off her word. Im already out on bond due to other situations
My brother has been going through some horrible things over the last nine years. The control that his narcissistic wife has over him are mind cringing. She topped it with a very serious arrest and was leaving him for trash so she can go to her next victim to empty his/her pockets. She should have been evaluated and, just maybe, her lies would have shone through. She kept his motorcycle and truck from him for over 4 months and both were damaged. She is pathologically ill and has abused the legal system on several levels, committed insurance fraud and has tried to even claim oddities toward myself to which I thwarted. She's crazy and he has to pay for her craziness. I wish the legal system could do something to make cases like this right. She is a people wrecker and user... Very sad... She operates like a wolf in sheep's clothing... The devil himself... Why is it that my brother had no say about what happened? He gets carted off by police and sent to jail. She falsifies the series of events that he says he's swear on the Holy Bible that he didn't do what she said. The only place he could have revealed truths would have been in a costly trial and the worry of being at the hands of a jury. Not right... not right at all... Can she be monitored for her abuse of the legal system? She calls the police like some people use the ER. She's always looking for attention. Please help!!!
I was accused of dv and tooken striaght to jail wothout my rights even being read to me .infact i was the one being attacked
I am a victim of false accusation and when I tried to clear my name of the incident the cops didn't want to listen. My case eventually was dismissed, and if it wasn't I was looking at a year in jail for something that never happened.
The women who do this should be charged with obstruction, falsifying a police report, defamation of character and face fines and jail time. Someone who is REALLY being abused wouldn't care about facing all that because they know the TRUTH.

My daughter was falsely accused of domestic violence December 2014. She was arrested, and everything including her 1 year old son was taken from her. She had a criminal case ( which she was found not guilty), and she is waiting on a trial date to see if she can get her son back in family court. She has been away from her son for 7 months because her ex boyfriend put a bunch of orders filed against her, her ex boyfirend lied to everyone saying she struck him in the eye. Her ex boyfriend called the police the next day while my daughter was returning from a friends house from the night before saying she was coming home to break down the door. He mentioned nothing about being struck in the eye until the police officer asked him how he got the bruise on his left eye. This guy's mother moved him and my daughter and my grandson to Florida to get my daughter and my grandson away from us so they could figure out a way to sabotage her so he could have full custody of her son. People like this should be put in jail so they can never do this to someone else. I believe that a lie detector test should be given to the person making the accusation, this would stop a lot of false accusations against an innocent person.
I also am curious, if she was found not guilty at the criminal trial why didn't grant a motion for her to get her son back?

I was a victim, my wife at the time was instructed the victims advocate to just say "i am in fear of my life" which then I was given an order of protection and couldn't see my daughter for over a year. When the divorce hearing finally happened she was asked under oath if I ever threatened her or ever hurt her in any way. Her answer was no. I pleaded with the judge (Bail) of cooper county to do something. He laughed and dismissed the order but did nothing to her for lying and falsifying a court document. The victims advocate had no right to tell her to say false things in order to falsely get an order of protection. What a crooked crooked system this is. And she also went to the police and falsely accused me of going to sexually assault my daughter and when they found the allegations to be false they did nothing to her. Where is my justice for all the injustice? Yet she took our daughter out of state and was in violation of a court order not to do so, yet nothing happened to her again. So much time I lost with my children due to this travesty of justice. Don't vote for Keith Bail, very crooked judge in Boonville mo.
