Oh honey – so many hugs for you and your poor husband. What a nightmare. On the bright side, at least there is absolutely no evidence and his ex-wife has a history of instability and lies, so I am sure this will turn out on your favor. Hopefully his daughter will come around when she gets older and escapes her mother’s manipulation. It is definitely worth investing in a good attorney. <br /><br />

Djacks88:  I’m so sorry you’re going through all this. In addition to getting a great lawyer, I’d also recommend filling a complaint for conflict of interest for your judge. He shouldn’t be trying his son’s case. Best of luck and lots of prayers for you and yours.

Djacks88:  Just from hearing your side of the story (I don’t have the entire picture) it sounds like you need a new solicitor. Why would your solicitor not ask the judge to excuse himself because of the conflict of interest? I have seen something like the charges for abuse that never happened and it turned out fine for the person who was facing those charges (he was acquitted). I also suggest that your husband may want to proactively go to anger management, not because he needs to but it shows proactiveness on his part (this I have seen a few times – the Court likes it) and parenting classes. Anyway, find a new solicitor who will give good advice and get what needs to be done done. Good luck. I hope that your stepdaughter will be okay, it’s a lot for a child to go through.

It seems like there should be more to this story. Police don’t normally arrest and prosecutors charge someone without evidence. What evidence would there have been that any crime was committed if she was out and about having a good time and witnessed by so many other people?

Next time when she visits or you go see her videotape EVERYTHING.

No advice here because I also think there’s more to this story.  Kicking your dad in the balls is ridiculously beyond the realm of normal teenage acting out that has me seriously worried.  And the cops showing up and arresting him with no evidence beyond a phone call about an event that happened two months ago?  Something tells me this is not the whole story.

Djacks88:  His lawyer should also be going after  costs (from her)  to get his record expunged, otherwise the arrest will continure to show on his record.

julies1949:  I’m confused too. I work in child protection so I see this stuff every day. It’s hard enough to get an arrest when there’s pretty damning evidence. It’s not normal for someone to be thrown in jail and charged with a crime without a shred of evidence. In most states, it’s impossible to even charge child abuse (physical) without marks or injuries that are likely to be caused by the abuse. I’m not saying he’s done anything wrong, but if he’s been arrested without a shred of real evidence, then there’s some real shady policework going on here.

Djacks88:  I just did a little research on these self-indicted warrants. That is absolutely insane! I cannot believe that’s legal… I can imagine it gets abused all the time. Wow! I am so sorry… this whole situation sucks. I hope the truth rises up out of this!
