You've heard the statistics before. Everyone knows that domestic violence
has spiraled out of control across the globe. Pick up a newspaper, turn
on the television news, surf the internet, and you can find startling
statistics regarding victims of domestic violence and their perpetrators.
What you don't hear too often about, though, is the millions who are
wrongly accused of crimes they didn't commit. Just in the state of
California alone over 2,000 claims of innocence are reviewed each year
by the California Western School of Law from California inmates. According to
A Voice For Men - an online activist group helping men defend themselves from being wrongly
accused - two million Americans every year, many of them dads, are falsely
accused of domestic violence. Many times the accused are arrested and
jailed for a crime they never committed.
There are as many reasons a person may be wrongly accused as there are
people. It could be retaliation brought on by jealousy; an attempt to
get the upper hand in a divorce or a dispute over child custody. Whatever
the reason, wrongly accusing someone else is morally wrong and illegal.
If you've been wrongly accused of a domestic violence crime, know that
you have rights. Hiring a defense attorney to protect your freedoms, especially
when you've been wrongly accused, is critical in obtaining the desired
outcome - your freedom. Unfortunately, law enforcement need very little
evidence to make a domestic violence arrest. If you've been wrongly
