Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

33,473 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.

Please be aware that even though the letter above refers to men being falsely accused, women are falsely accused as well. These false allegations need to be stopped. This is perjury and it is a crime and needs to be held accountable to the highest degree, not just given a slap on the wrist and ignored. These false allegations ruin innocent people's lives all because of a vindictive, lying and malicious ex who still wants control. If our courts truly represent justice, then let justice prevail in all aspects and on all judiciary levels, this includes judges who spend only a few minutes looking at a petition or who deny the defendant to appear by phone when in another state. Shame on our system.
Im being fasely accussed of dv and my victim lied told the judge she lied and im still serving time im innocent
My name is Joseph Saddlerjr. I'm a resident of Buffalo NY. I was convicted of assault in the third degree which I did not commit. I did hit Shamaya Stots back in self defense but I did not assault her. She showed up to my house 2 hours after I told her that I was not attracted to her at all. She hit me at least 20 to 30 times before I fought back. When I hit back she called the police. No one asked my side at all. My Public defenders judgement from the very beginning was to take a plea only. The judge treated me Luke I was guilty & I was afraid so I took the plea & was sentenced to 90 days. When I got out I found my home was broken into. I lost everything & am now forced to live out of my car, when I just had a fully furnished 3 bedroom home. Everything's gone. I'm rebuilding but it's a long road ahead. Just the other day Shamaya Stots told the police I was following her. They didn't believe her this time because I have video of her following me to my job where she parked & was stalking me.
out of no where cops at my house removing my firearms, etc, all false and the best is no accountability even if I successfully defend. Thought due process still existed, outrageous. All thats needed is a lie and and attorney and I a, losing my property, need attorney and have to defend my entire life. Quite scary situation and very stiff consequences even though I have not been heard, and the order temporary. Wow and best I have to prove I am innocent. Think this needs to change to say the least
I have been falsely charged 10 times and never convicted. But she did play the court like a fiddle, and i think the sick twisted court likes it, and i know the lawyers are getting feed well on this one. Sick bunch of twisted people in our legal systen. They know its wrong and drain you of every dime because they can. Not very honorable1
