Re: Domestic Violence Case Ended but Want to Sue for Ex's Perjury,california
The fact that you pled guilty to DV is going to make proving that she lied pretty difficult.
Plus, you do not have perjury, you have a false report to the police. But, even if she was wrong and you only hit her 5 times not 10, so what? All you needed to do was hit her once. Being mistaken when talking to the police is not likely to result in damages - especially since you cannot prove that you did NOT hit her ten times.
And her attorney can argue that she did not bleed until she moved to another room ... it doesn't prove she made a falsehood.
Her medical report shows very light hurt on face while she claimed I beat her on face 10 times. There was blood mark in the first floor where the fight happend. While the baby was in the second floor bedroom where there was no blood mark. The blood mark was pictured by police.
Clearly you got very lucky that they dropped the matter to a misdemeanor. If you drew blood, you should have been charged with the felony. But, if you have not yet been sentenced you can always tell your attorney that you want to drop the deal and go to trial on the felony. Your call ... but, prison could very well be in your future if you do.
