Stop False Allegations of Domestic Violence

Messages 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 was treated guilty from the start. At the first preliminary trial, they gave me no custody and I couldn't even be heard. I felt like i had no rights, and all the years of raising my kids meant nothing because of the charges which were falsely brought out. She reacted and hit me, but i was pretty much told it was a losing battle. Even if I raised my voice it could be disorderly conduct, so I was too scared to defend myself against the system. Instead, I just took the plea deal to clear my record. When i went to all the counseling sessions, the counselors even said that they couldn't believe i had to be on the program. I even homeschooled my son. This was the most unjust and worst time of my life. I never had anything on my record before that divorce, and after it a2 year restraining order, and a case for domestic disorderly conduct. Luckily I finished the plea deal, and got the charges dropped.

I know first hand about being victimized by my ex wife and the criminal court system. My ex accused me of both physical and mental abuse. The truth is just the opposite. I suffered from her abuse for thirteen years and six months and when I told her I wanted a divorce she and two co-conspirators called police and made false claims of threatening her and my children's lives. I was a gun collector and avid target shooter. All of this was used against me and after 6 criminal hearings the DA was telling me I will serve 17 years. I was horrified and scared. I was forced to accept a plea bargain or face a trial where 2 friends of her had already bore false witness against me. My ex wife's psychiatric history was not allowed to be presented in any of the 6 hearings. There was never any allegations of abuse against me in the entirety of the marriage. I was debt free and had just paid the capital gains taxes on the sale of my business. The truth is they called the police who sent a SWAT team to remove me from my home. I thought the call from the police to me saying to put my guns down and come out the front door was a prank. IT WAS A PLANNED MURDER BY MY EX WIFE MANIPULATING THE SYSTEM USING SWAT TO CARRY OUT HER VICIOUS RAGE AGAINST A GOOD MAN. It is 24 years later now and she has been getting away with her LIES without consequence. I have suffered the losses of all I worked hard for and my good name has been tarnished by accepting a felony plea bargain for crimes I DID NOT COMMIT. STILL ****ED OFF.

Currently, the law for criminal prosecution for false domestic violence accusations can only be administered by a district attorney. More than 99% of these cases go unpunished simply because the DA is overwhelmed with case load (primarily drug enforcement). The law can be altered to be a civil case, allowing individuals falsely accused to press charges.

My life has been ruined by this, I lost my job, my home, and have no ability to see or contact my daughter because I am not able to afford a lawyer. I did nothing to my ex, and was arrested anyway. My daughter was my life and this is wrong to do to anyone
