ON THE RECORD ~ Throughout my life I have never committed any acts of domestic violence against a woman. I have a brother and sister and have been raised by "both" parents teaching us to always respect women, men, animals...etc. More importantly, I have a son and daughter and would never want them to experience domestic violence. Because I have experienced domestic violence; I am a victim of domestic violence. In the past I was attacked and injured (by a woman) and she was arrested.
In the Paternity Case for my (our) daughter that I filed almost 5 years ago exists "false allegations" of domestic violence against me. My daughter's mother was making her second attempt (with a lawyer) to make false allegations of domestic violence and obtain an injunction to derail the Paternity Suit I filed December 4th, 2008.
On her 1st attempt she admitted to Judge Cohn on October 27th, 2008 that there had never been any domestic violence incidents since we met in 1990. She added, answering the Judge's question, that she felt no danger for our daughter. We were both self-represented. So on the 2nd go-around I represented myself in DV Court again and she had a lawyer. A 1 year TEMPORARY restraining order was ordered against even though I had proof that a false police report was filed with Miami-Dade Police Department and it was allowed to included as evidence against my objection.
But, it gets worse, at the end of the hearing I placed an envelope with a "legal document" that I'd just filed in the Paternity Case on the opposing party's table. For this Judge Brennan returned to the bench called us back to our places and without even checking the contents of the envelope she ordered me (and I completed) a 26-week Batterers Intervention Course.
Each week for 26-weeks an average of 20 men (in each session including me) discussed a variety of topics regarding DV. I heard some men admit to committing domestic violence...it was shocking, awful and repulsive! However, I learned a great deal and was able to tell my story. By the way I was one of less than a handful of those men that did NOT have to wear an "ankle bracelet".
The Family Court has been advised over and over that perjury has been committed (in the case) and that Florida State laws have been broken. I advised the Presiding Family Court Judge, Director Loftus of the Miami-Dade Police Department, and Katherine Fernandez Rundel at the State Attorney's Office; following the instructions of the very same Family Court Judge.
