Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

23,411 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 am going through false accusations now. I have volunteered to take a polygraph and passed it. The local Sheriff Anna Franklin put on her face book page that I brutally attacked her. I was fired from my job. Because of the Sheriffs comments. I worked for the same company for 22 years.
I have seen this happen to many of my male friends. I am a female and it happened to me. The court system is a joke and it is always the first person who alleges abuse wins. Lets make people that make false allegations of DV legally and financially accountable. Too many taxpayer dollars are spent on ruining innocent peoples lives'
A neighbor uses the Domestic Violence as a payback for county violations he is guilty of. I have had 3 filed on me to date with nothing but lies to try and get the judge to issue them. This law needs some work to protect the innocent. What ever happened to lying under oath.
I am signing this because false allegations of abuse were leveled against me by my ex, accusations which can be PROVEN false by a preponderance of evidence on my part plus I have ONE thing she doesn't, WITNESSES that can PROVE my innocence because at the time the events she spoke of were to have taken place I was still in the process of recovering from major brain surgery for a life threatening condition I supper from called Hydrocephalus, I would like to know the avenues I could take to get my story out there and explain it publicly
I am currently going through a similar devastation here in San Jacinto county Texas. A female lady I rented my home to her by tenancy aggreement. Then I found out she was from the Burke center for mental issues and she wasn't taking her medications in which she started having demented episodes which she ended up getting bruises but no swelling on her face while I kept her from killing both of us with knives etc. She then left my home and had the police pick me up twice. The first time I was let out on a $1000bond overnight. She begged her way back and two weeks later did it again and I stayed in jail 3-1/2 months on a $50,000bond which when I got out my home had been robbed and desserted and they still will not arrest her while she plays victim with a phony police report. Someone please help stop this crisis before our country is ruined.
My son was accused of domestic violence when he broke off a relationship with a women who just wanted someone to pay her bills. She choked him and he grabbed her hands to stop her. That was the "domestic violence." She verbally abused him; he lost 60 pounds in 2
months. He tried to move out and cut out what he was paying for with rent, and she filed the claim to keep him on the hook.
Ive been falsely accused, because I caught my girlfriend cheating on Online Dating sights like Zooks and had her Son confirm it cause he was dragged with her. I was upset and she called cops and accused me of DV just to get me out of the home. Now a year later I denied my plea and I'm taking it to trial. I am willing to face max sentence, because I cant admit to something I didnt do...... who is with me.....who can I call for help. ( ) where in the heck are my rights........
My son has been falsely accused and found guilty in one incident and now he is being accused again and is pending. I am desperate to find answers how is he protected by law. Any body that knows him knows he is not a violent person. In first case we all knew he is the one that was the victim...but we found out that what ever the woman says that is what is believed...I do not condone domestic violence at all....but where is the mans rights come in for his protection????
These false allegations of assault also extend to house/room mates. The accuser stole TV, furnitures and more, and had a party at my house while I was held in jail. All because I asked her to move out after living for free at my house for six months. All because this person is revengeful and vendictiv.
I to have been falsely accused of domestic violence. And have had my kids ripped out of my life because of this lie
