I was falsely accused of 3 counts of 2nd degree sexual assault of my 13 yr old daughter almost 7 yrs ago. I had problems with her previously told to me by my wife and mother. After the preliminary hearing I was in a car accident where I sustained a TBI, 6 broken ribs,a ruptured spleen and collapsed lung. Due to the accident my memory had been lost so I couldn't provide my lawyer with the information he needed. My wife had recollections of the days my daughter said something happened and my wife knew that I was with her so there are a lot of other details and no physical proof nothing happened. People that knew me and my situation knew it was a lie so my daughter didn't have to come by my house because her mother was on drugs, didn't care what she did and I put my foot down so my daughter was mad at me. So in terms of the case I went and saw a professional brain doctor and went thru 8hours of tests 2 times so I was declared incompetent for trial, but my issue is that they charged me but I was never convicted. So anytime someone does a background check on me the charge comes up, but Im not a sex offender or never did anything like that so its holding me back because I would like to go back to college since Im currently on disability, but with that on my record I would have a difficult time getting hired and its also caused problems for me trying to rent apartments. I put in at least 6 applications for disability apartments and I was turned down for every one. the only explanation was because of my police record and before this incident it had been at least 10 years of police contact and never for anything sexual. Im not a felon and I need help w this so I can move forward w my life. My name is ***** ***** and I live in xxxxx xxxx,WI
