Customer: Iam an un wedmother of a 1 yr old me and my kids father resided together and he spent yrs abusing me mentally emotionally and on&off physically. Anyhow on march 16th this yr in ogle county il at our residence he got up from dinner table yellin at me because he didnt like me movin my son& acted like i hurt him when in fact i was sittin in fromt my kid n my son was smiling back at me&my kids dad got mad& went up to me and grabbed my face and yanked it hard & was pacing back n forth yellin at me and i removed my son from the room went in bedroom to get his&my clothes& told my kids dad if he dont stop yellin im gonna call cops. So then i went to put some my things in my car &came back in garage as it is attached to the house& he came up to me grabbed my wrists to restrict my movement and shoved me into the wall. this was the 2nd attack that night on me so i was scared n grabbed what was nearest to me. A pair tree clippers he came at me intimidating me and scared me .and when he came at me i scarped his elbow wit it. I wasnt tryin to seriously injure him nor had mentally been thinkin of it. It was in self defense as i do love him n just wanted him away from me. Then he yelled profanity at me and threatened i get a felony cause attackin wit weapon n that i have no proof he attacked me. That what he said threatenin cops wont be believing me. i didnt say anything i walked around him quickly n went to get rest my stuff he left out front. I go to put my stuff in car&he had cops there. My son was not injuried he was NOT in room we were at n my kids dad stopped me from leavin to NOT endanger him. So cops believed him n arrested me as that is a small sexist town with unintelligent officers. my question is how can i get or open a case because he has me on this criminal case. And i feel the cops abused me with him bevause in past they would not arrest him when he left many bruises on me& i had hospital report in PAST. But in current situation he didnt leave any. Purposely.
JA: Is there anything else the Family Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: I was refused my right to file on him for assault battery by the cops that came. They never even wanted to fully listen to my half of what happened. My kids dad chose not to presd charges on me & wanted to lift the no contact order
as he wanted sex wit me. Judge granted it but he got them to let him have my son to live wit him and he had spent this yr tellin me things like women should not have legal right after they give birth" that he has other womens #s for back up. Claimed he wasnt out to take custody 3 days prior to my arrest
