I had a horrible history of domestic violence. When I was young, I was quick to get angry and was unable to control myself. I was convicted of Felony domestic violence 7 years ago. I served a year in jail and did my anger management counseling for 18 months. I really learned to manage my temper and to take steps to prevent any further violence. Unfortunately, my ex-wife knew about my past and had taunted me over the years that all it would take is a phone call, and that nobody would believe a word of a former felon. Well, that nightmare came true. She made good on her threats and called the police and lied to them about being beaten to punish me for leaving her for another women. When we went to court, no one believed me. No one except my attorney. He advised me that I was facing a year in jail. We took the matter to trail, where the prosecutor attempted to use my prior conviction from 7 years ago to prove that I was guilty of the crime charged today. My attorney was able to bring out the true story and more importantly, the motives of my ex-wife for lying to he police and convincing my own kids to lie against me. The jury didn’t buy any of it. They voted 12-0 in favor of finding me not guilty. I thank my attorney for all his efforts and for allowing me to have my life back.
