My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York
Hi, I would like to thank all the people that offer their time and knowledge to help others get through some of life tragedies.
My Story Ė
I was living with my ex girlfriend for 2 years. I supported her, opened my home to her kids, fed them and took care of them.
Towards the end of our relationship she had become very jealous. She really took it to the extreme to the point where she was even jealous of my 5 year old daughter. It was no longer acceptable to me so I ended the relationship.
About three weeks went by and there was no contact between us and we werenít even speaking to each other. I figured I would make an attempt to at least be friends again by writing a letter and going to her job when she was at the end of her shift and feel the situation out. If she didnít want to talk I would just hand her the letter and walk away and thatís exactly what ended up happening. I ended up sending her flowers the next day also. Well the very next day after that I had found out that she was with another man and understandably I got upset. I was done with the situation at that point and I ended up regrettably cursing her out via text and thatís all I did.
Over the course of those same three weeks her kids were texting me saying that they were upset with her over this situation. I DID NOT initiate texting with them or say anything inappropriate to them but I did forward their texts to my ex so she can see how they feel.
It had been a month and a half since our break up and still no contact so I was done because I know I tried to do the right thing and if she wasnít open to communication I wasnít going to waste my time anymore. I was moving forward without her.
My ex wife had approached me several times after our divorce and sheís been wanting to get back together. I still love my ex wife and decided to give it a shot to work on getting my family back together. Well my ex girl friend who did not want to communicate and was already with someone else found out from stalking me, that I was back with my ex wife who she was always so jealous of.
She decided that she wanted to pay me back by going to the police with false accusations saying that I had pushed her down to the ground, sat on her chest and obstructed her breathing with my hand so I had spent the night in jail, have a stay away order of protection against me and now facing very serious charges. All lies and meanwhile I hadnít even spoken a word to her in nearly a month at that point.
She has no evidence of anything because this event never happened but I wouldnít put it past her to manufacture that as well. She did this for no other reason than to get revenge on me because I got back with my ex wife and I wonít find out exactly what Iím up against until Thursday, which is when I go to my first court date.
I do have a lot of dirt on her as far as proof of her stalking me, illegal activities in her work place (drug related) and I can also call CPS on her for inappropriate things that she has done with her kids.
Any advice on how I should handle this situation? Iím obviously dealing with a very irrational person here that takes jealousy and anger to the extreme. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for readingÖ
