Arrested for Burglary and Stalking DV for going to my ex's work to get my keys and dropping off some of her stuff on her porch. I had been out of the country working for the Federal government and came home early because of a death in the family. She had been stealing morphine from her work and keeping it at my place. I found it and turned it over to County cops just before I was arrested by City cops. She was hoping to have me arrested before I found it so she could break in and get it. Lost my job because of it. She still has hers. Wrong in so many ways.
If an individual is wasting the courts time with false accusations they should be required to pay back all court fees and charged with false imprisonment.
My brother is being falsley accused of domestic violence ( threatening). She cheated on my brother with a man that has numerous domestic violence, kidnapping, assault on a child convictions. . This man does not have a job, but lives in my brothers home that he has worked so hard for. Her new bo gives her all the attention that she wants.My brother worked his*****so she could have a better life! I feel this man has coached her on getting my brother out of his home and away from his children. It's time that something gets done to put a stop to the false allegations that are being made against good men, fathers,husbands. These false accusers need to be held accountable for their actions.
I was arrested for domestic violence, in 2013. I was the person who called the police & I was the only person with visible injuries (a bloody nose & blood-stained shirt). This woman and are are not married and have been divorced for over 7 years. She only stays with me on occasion. Now, she lives in my home, rent free. She is mentally ill. I have been charged with multiple crimes, including two felonies. I have incurred over $9,000.00 in attorney fees, including bail bondsman costs, to this date. I was removed and barred from my home (totally belonging to me), never once allowed to recover any of me possessions, including my work tools, clothes or vehicles. I have not been allowed to visit or speak with my two young sons, at all, since then. The woman has given my attorney a letter, weeks later, admitting that she was actually the one to attack me and that I never hit her, as she had previously told police."She was scared and didn't want to go to jail", she wrote. I'm still awaiting trial, as of July 3, 2015. This has stolen almost two years of my children's lives away from me. My attorney agrees that "nothing will be done to her" once I am exonerated.
False accusations should be punished by law even from the youth as well as adults
Unfortunately this is happening all over the country. I have 3 beautiful daughter's I raised to never allow a man to abuse them. I got engaged and my fiancee had our now 1yr 2 month old son.. she attacked me she stood infront of me refused to let me leave and yet I'm the one under a dvro..I never got to defend myself. The judge based his decision on a my demeanor that he caused by yelling at me and then saying one thing but doing something completely diffrent.. please please help us.. I've never hurt a woman before in my life..
I was married to a Lady that is Bi Polar, I was the caregiver , In a 10 min Time I was arrested for doing nothing more then Drinking some wine and putting Steaks on the Grill ,She gave me a shove I went out the Door she hit 911 and never hit a man or Woman in my Life , I was sent in a nightmare that took years to straighten out. Falsely accused, its a law that you can not speak up for yourself. I feel sorry for the Innocent Men and Women that can't get justice because of the Cost.
My children and I are Victim of this. I was accused of hitting my now ex-wife and the court granted her a restraining order Based on her accusations. She had no proof of me ever hitting her, just her words in court. I was raised in a loving family with both my parents. I was always taught growing up to respect woman. The mother of my children was granted a restraining order and I went from a father that was with there kids every day to 6 days a month and my kids mom got 100% physical and legal custody of our kids. How is ripping the kids out of there fathers life in the best interest of my kids.
VAWA with its incentives to approve all restraining orders without due process and rules of evidence criminalizes fathers at the outset of separation. Rather than used as an actual tool to prevent domestic violence, unrestrained issuance of such orders result in becoming just another separation tactic.
This is sure true in more ways than one. I've been a victim of this. When the police came to my house they automatically arrested me and not her. Only than did they ask questions as to what happen. I couldn't afford an attorney and don't know much about the law or much experience in court so I just went along with whatever my public defender told me to say which was to plead guilty for a lesser charge. Meanwhile I was innocent of any wrong doing. She stop me from leaving. She put her hands on me first. She got in my way,in my face, shut the door so I won't walk out. I was the victim! I love America but there are some laws that need and must be change!
My friend son is in jail in Ouachita parish at this very moment being falsely accused of setting his unstable, mentally ill ,bipolar girlfriend on fire only because she felt she wasn't getting enough attention from him and thats not the first time she has attempted suicide but now she wants him in prison so she's crying wolf because she knows she will get away with it. His mom hired a Lawyer but he doesn't seem to be doing much as of yet. Guess her son will be one more innocent guy in prison because the female lies. Its really sad because he had a good job, went out and got a family vehicle because she was pregnant he was so excited but then she decided to make a whole different plan for his life. There's no justice for good innocent men this needs to stop.
This isn't just true for men! as I speak, I sit in a motel after being thrown out of my house simply by the words of my husband that are for the most part untrue. Homelessness is impending, and the attorney that I had threw me under the bus. im treated like a criminal, and I have no idea what im going to do. I've not had one chance to exercise my 6th amendment rights, and I've basically been crucified. this situation has to stop!! im guilty until proven innocent, and I have no chance for my day in court. I don't think I live in America anymore.
My family is currently going through this. My fiance is being falsley accused and the courts are tearing our family apart. I want justice, and i want my son to have his father back. This law is much to broad and it lessens the actual abusers crime. Its taken my family out of our home and into shelters, as well as broke our hearts.
I am a woman and I am the victim of domestic violence by my husband.He abuses me and then call the police and lies then have me arresred.After I moved out the home it got worst.He would go to the magistrate office and take out false charges on me.so far I have 14 charges since December 2014 until today.I just got out of jail this morning on my 14 charge.my question is where is the law that is there to protect the true victims like myself.I have no contact at all with my husband and I wish not to have any.How can someone who you devoted your life to be so cruel?control control control
i am a grandmother and it breaks my heart that these young ladies continue to take advantage of the working men for custody modifications in spite for jealously resons instead of best interest of the children. It costs unnecessary money to be spent on attornies than on their families and the women get off with nothing to lose or pay. Courts in ca need to wake up and issue court hearings faster tnan 2 months to see that this is not the solution.
I am a woman and I have to say that women who falsely accuse men of beating them deserve to pay in prison for their lies! This justice system is broken and their is no real justice. Hearsay are not facts!
Yes , my soon to be ex wife has did this to me and 5 other men . I PRAY that I get out of this .
This has to be stopped. I've become a victim of false allegations, and boy I tell you this is something to put a dent in anyone's life. I surely pray to GOD that he blesses me to get out of this and punish Charles Myers for what he's done to me, and my child. Never wish bad for anyone, all I do is help those, and this is the thanks I get. SMH!
Devastating to families and society. Evil psychopath covert narcissists commit these crimes...be aware..be very aware....you will be destroyed emotionally...learn all you can
As a victim of sexual crime its sickning to me that someone would find it so easy to falsely accuse. As a family member of a falsely accused it's devastating.
This was done to me by my ex-boyfriend, so he could get out of paying child support, by making me look like a bad mother. It worked like a charm for him, via a very corrupt injustice system. He is long gone along with the dirty cops who helped him, but I am still unable to move on with my life now having an "Arrest Record with domestic battery", I an unable to get a job. I do not know how I will be able to take care of myself. I am 53 years old. I never even spanked my children but at 48 years all of a sudden I started beating people?????? That question was never asked because everyone did what ever they wanted, no one cares about you or the truth. The dirty cops never questioned anything my hateful ex ever said. Hearsay was treated as fact, and these people don't care about ruining lives. My life was nothing to all those who destroyed it, starting with the dirty cops who arrested me for "coming home". Their existence is so much more important. I lost everything and now fear I will lose my house. FDLE will not remove the charge because of something that happened over 24 years ago that has absolutely nothing to do with this. Anyone who thinks there is a constitution in this country and that we have rights, is very misinformed, just like I was.
THE PROBLEM IS REAL. THIS NEEDS TO STOP.
Unfortunate but true, women lie and get away with it.
I've been a victim of this very injustice
Where are the accused rights? Innocent man losing more than imaginable over a simple verbal argument.

This is so critically important. This aspect of the legal system is a travesty in the modern era. Anyone can simply claim abuse, and defense is so costly that many times an innocent man or woman will simply relent to try and minimize damages. There are significant problems with how these cases originate, are subsequently built, and finally tried. Most of these issues are borderline criminal, but could also be very easily fixed. It's time that this crime is not permitted to be used as a weapon of vendetta in crumbling relationships.
I have been falsely accused for 2nd time. How is this not defendable... this needs to change. You're sending a very bad message. Men are victims... you know how painful it is to live with fear if someone else decides to do this?
My son is currently dealing with false accusations of abuse as a ploy to get sole custody of the children. So heart breaking!
My daughters dad falsely accuses me of child abuse and constantly lies to try to get me in trouble. Many attorneys have told me there is nothing I can do to seek justice. NOTHING! So I have to live in this mess day after day. All I want is peace from this.
False charges were filed against me for stalking someone whom I have not seen for four years.
In June 2015, both me and my father was arrested, due to false accusation made by my wife and her sister. Me and the wife were living seperatly, and she just comes into my house and hits and curses me and calls 911. Both me and my father are arrested as a result.
Our court appointment date on aug 11. Please help!!
Several years ago my husband filed for divorce of his wife of 10 years. During that 10 years there was never an incident, police call, nothing. Keep in mind HE filed... then a week later he is served a restraining order-rape, attempted murder, child abuse, etc. Lost his 6 year old child in a several hundred dollar custody battle and she moved to another state. She should be in prison.. all incredibly sad.
The worst part of the whole scam is after the allegations are proven to be a lie the false accuser just walks away.
its not just men that are victims! My ex made this allegation and I've lost custody of my three children
Women who lie about domestic abuse shame those who are indeed victims. They ruin the lives of every innocent man who do not abuse women. Thus has got to stop. Families are being broken because of lies. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?
I've been dealing with this sort of problem for a long time and I'm glad something is being done
