For Class with Dave, week 17 - assignment 1: Justice
A very good friend of mine is going through hell right now. His ex-wife is doing everything in her power to ruin his life, his finances and his relationship with his kids. She's filed false claims with Child Protective Services, accusing him of sexually molesting his own two sons. She's accused him of threatening to kill her, and every time he has to go into court with his lawyer, explain the situation, get it dismissed, and pay ALL of the court fees. (Generally $3,500.00 per accusation)
She's said that she will continue until he's out of money, then she's going to "drive the dagger through his heart."
All the while, she's protected because she's the alleged "victim" & Jason hasn't seen his kids in almost 3 months.
I was called as a witness in Jason's defense, and had to write a sworn statement as to his character. He's one of the most wonderful fathers I know, and his kids adore him.
Is this really how our justice system works?
