Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

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 arrested and charged with domestic violence crimes against my ex girlfriend with no proof. She also had an additional civil restaining order granted for the same bogus claims with no proof as well. She made up an elaborate story of years of abuse by me claiming I left her bruised and bloody. But she never called the police or sought medical attention. I have a stack of hand written letters from her proving that she's lying. My lawyer was able to question her at the R/O hearing and proved that she was lying but the R/O was still granted. The prosecutor is still pushing forward with a case against me even though she has been proven to be a liar and her credibility ruined. It's cost me thousands of dollars todefend myself and I could lose my job if my employer found out. This is a living nightmare.

Like several others dealing with this, my case was a first time offense. I had never been arrested before and was unaware of how to deal with the situation. Unfortunately, my attorney did not represent me well and suggested pleading no contest to a Class C Misdemeanor. I later find out that no one cares it is a misdemeanor if the description says Assault. I have since been denied apartment rentals and some job opportunities. Is this really what Texas intended for Class C Misdemeanors? As a Texas voter, I would like to see all people rally together and encourage our state and other representatives to make it illegal for businesses and employers to deny people with Misdemeanor offenses especially when a first time offense. It should not matter if the disposition included deferred adjudication or not. This is the lowest Class for a Misdemeanor and equal to a traffic ticket.. This should not have such a negative impact on people's lives especially after 2 years. Let's do what makes sense..
Neighbor thinks I turned him in for driving on a suspended license. This person has 3 DUI arrests and convictions.
my husbands ex has done this 5 times and they are still allowing her to. there is no integrity in the justice system that allows this
My wife and I had an argument when she was caught cheating. Someone called the police and I was arrested immediately with no investigation or being asked my side of the story. It was later determined there was no evidence of assault and no injuries not even the supposed scratch the police claimed on her wrist. Background checks prevent me from renting an apartment after 6 years. I am researching how to file class action suit against the County for defamation of character and loss of job opportunities. My civil rights were violated. Maybe attorneys from The Innocence Project will be interested.
