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.
