On December 15, 2012, I arrivied home from doing some shopping with my daughter at Macy's in the Boulevard Mall.   At approximately 10:30pm. my then, significant other, showed up at my door very irate, and abrasive in his mannerism.  He appeared to have been drinking and was very angry with me because I failed to answer phone while I was out. While in my bedroom, I was trying on some of the new items I had purchased, he began to speak to me in a very derogatory manner, whereas I ignored him.  After this went on for approx. 5 minutes of badgering me, I asked him to please leave.  He then proceeded to reach into his pocket while running me around the bedroom. I knew instantly what he was reaching for merely because I have been dating him for 7 years and I have known him to carry an army knife around @ all times.  I immediately became frightened not only by his movements but also by the rage that was displayed on his face.  I screamed for my daughter to call 911, in which she did.  I initially had taken the phone from daughter to continue to speak with the dispatcher, explained to her that he (S.O.) had a knife, and I was afraid for my safety.  While I was on the phone with the dispather, my S.O. had went downstairs very quietly to hide the weapon(knife) he had.  When the police arrived @ my door, my S.O. answered it and proceeded to be just as arrogant, rude, and abrasive to the police officer.  The one officer that showed up initially then pulled his gun on him and told him to get to the ground, all the while, he (S.O.) still talking in such a way to the officer, I care not to elaborate. Once the other officers arrived at the door, they separated us, and we (daughter as well), had opportunites to explain what transpired.  And in order for my S.O. to prove his innocence, he told police I was once a participant in the Amherst drug courts and that I was not to be trusted.  (Drug court is another story, I was placed in that program because I was driving w/ a suspended license coming from a job interview).  The police then searched him for weapons, could not find the allegeded knife, came back into my home, and arrested me for false reporting.  I went to jail and was released on my own recognizance by Judge J. Klein the very next day.. an order of protection was automatically generated, in which (I believed I was told to sign), a court date was scheduled for me to come back to answer to these charges.  Ok.  approx. a week or two later, I went back to court, with a hired lawyer and the S.O. and was seen in front of Judge Farrell.. Judge Farrell was very rude, arrogant, and unapproachable when I tried to explain to him what happened.  He told me I committed the crime of wasting the police time by calling.  My S.O. then told Farrell he hired the lawyer, whereas then Farrell kicked him(S.O.) out of the courtroom, hit me w/ a 250.00 fine and reduced the charges to a disorderly conduct.  Since then the S.O. has been diagnosed w/cancer and we became engaged in Sept, 2013.  So.. On Sept. 30, 2013, the police showed up @ MY door stating that they got a call saying that they heard a woman screaming. they asked me to step outside and told the now fiancee to come out as well..I was in the downstairs part of the house whereas the fiancee was upstairs watching a sporting event. once they realized there was no trouble @ my residence, they asked for our I.D.'s. we provided it, they found the order of protection that was still on file, and arrested ME once again for violating the order of protection.  The fiancee never received a copy from the town's clerk and I assumed that since the charges were reduced and thrown out of court, it was no longer in existence. (If he had known about it, he would of had it revoked) Once again, I appeared in front of the Hon. Judge Farrell and he showed no mercy.  He stated I had 27 arrests, and 4 absconds. (he stated this to the court and it is totally incorrect, and blantantly a biased and prejudiced statement, I have never ran from the law! ever). and put a bail on me for $1500/$5000 A or B.

I need to speak to anyone who can tell me my rights as a citizen.  I know I have rights but I am not in a position or have enough law education to fight this apparent discriminating court system.  Judge Farrell is not a picture of justice.  He practices illegal laws on those of us who do not have means to protect ourselves. I was also stopped for my very first time EVER for a speeding ticket in the town of Amherst and had to pay $400. for that. I need help in fighting for my rights.. Can anyone help me???

CORRECTION

AUTHOR: TATA - ()

LOL.. my fiancee owns his own home, does not reside with me and has never abused me.. reread.  and after 9 years has never placed his hands on me.. but I have never been diagnosed w/ cancer, but i assume it is mind altering and causes you to react in a way that is not conducive to regular behavior.  and if he had been sent a copy of the po, then it would have been rectified /revised/ annulled, etc.  so, unfortunately, I/we have NEVER been in a predicament where as we needed a po issued unlike your self.. thanks for your response once again.  and remember, this is real life, reality.. people grow, like flowers or they wither.. and I hope that if one of your ex's ever came up with a deadly diagnosis, you will be there for him. and not become inhumane and make nonsense statements such as you just did.  It doesn't apply..

I am sorry you feel that way.  I have been with this person for now, 9 years, and he has never placed his hands on me.  His diagnosis has caused him to have insecurities that go beyond his normal behavior.  And as his partner, yes, I am now engaged to him and will continue to support him while he goes thru his treatments.  As for the scenario which occurred in 2012, I am a person with emotions and I reacted to his demeanor, which at that time, he did not know he had cancer.  So please realize, as a emphathetic and caring woman, I will not walk away from him. One day, you will age and have ailments, and that person in your life that may not have treated you to the upmost respect at all times, may be the one you will need. Thank you for your interest in my blog.  I appreciate your comments.

Good luck

 You got engaged to a man you stated was violent and had a PO against you then let him move in with you.  Therefore you did violate the PO that was issued.  I am in no way an Attorney but have been in enough PO court hearings to know what the Judge says about the terms and how the client was advised to NOT violate the terms of the order subject to violating said order.

Should have had the order vacated before you pushed your luck. As for what the Judge said he probably is correct - they do have access to your records!!! Good luck cause you are gonna need it.
