This is my story
This is my story. I met my abuser may of 2016. In the beginning he was truly prince charming. Our first DV was in August of 2016. I didn’t sustain many injuries just alot of bruises. He only got 78 days and was released. After 9 days of being out he found me on Thanksgiving of 2016 and the beating was horrible. I wonder how I even survived. I sustained severe injuries. I was hospitalized for 4 days. I cooperated fully and he plead guilty to 3 counts of misdemeanor dv and got 270 days in prison. I was granted a no contact order. He was released July 2017. I still had no contact and had friends telling me they saw him in the town I was staying in. I left my guard down and didn’t believe it when they told me. October 6 2017 my worst nightmare happened. I walked out of a friend’s house and he was by my car. We called the local authorities and it took 2 hours for them to respond. It was too late. He had kidnapped me, held me hostage and beat me for 24 hours. Needless to say again we go to court, he plead guilty to 2 felony 4 dv charges and got 3 yrs probation. I am being harassed by him and his family. I was granted a 5 year DVCPO but the law will do nothing. Ladies I fear for my life everyday. I suffer from migraines from the brain trauma he caused. Some days I want to go back because the judicial system didn’t have my back. I know the next time he gets ahold of me will be the end. Stay safe and alert.
