Why People File False Domestic Violence Allegations.

Each year thousands of people are charged wrongfully with domestic violence. Why is this so wide spread? Who is doing it? Why can't the police stop them? Attorney Michael S. Discioarro examines these issues and the answers may surprise you.
Dec. 12, 2009 - PRLog -- As a prosecutor I saw thousands of domestic violence cases go through the courts each year. Some included homicides and serious assaults. Now as a defense attorney I have seen countless people falsely accused of domestic violence. Here are some reasons why these false accusations occur. The first and most prevealent is a pending divorce or child custody battle between the parties. One party will accuse the other of domestic violence in order to gain a leg up in the family court proceedings. This causes the accused of having to defend himself in both criminal and family court. These expenses can completely overwhelm a person of medium income. The police and courts do nothing to stop these types of complaints and the accused will spend months and years defending himself.

The next reason why false allegations are filed is because the accusers feels betrayed by the accused in some way. Usually this is due to a nasty break up or when a new romantic partner comes into the scene. This is plain and simple a revenge charge. The good news is that as time passes by the accuser usually loses interest and the case can be dismissed.

The last two categories are even more offensive. In New York if you accuse your lover of domestic violence you will be given priority on public housing and welfare lists. As long as you keep claiming victimhood, the welfare industrial complex will assign you a caseworker and pay for all of your needs. This is the most offensive abuse of the system and it happens everyday.

We have seen how these practices can really hurt a regular person. In my practice I have seen them all over and over again. Visit http://www.nycdomesticviolencelawyer.com for more information and help.
