  1. We must remember that we are all innocent until proven guitly. In this case, the wife recanred her statement and authored an sworn affidavit that she had lied about the entire incident. the charge was later dismissed by the State Attorney's Office.

    1. I've been here before. I'll tell you what happened.

      Your bumbling DV and IA people got there.
      They told the wife she would lose her retirement checks from him and get no support
      They said they would make sure it didn't happen again
      Then when it happens again they'll tell everyone that she is a chronic complainer and what a wonderful guy he is.
      If only Loftus had been able to stay longer and clean this stuff up.

  2. yeh of course she recanted - he fled to the ex-wife's house and then went back to wife. but yet now he's on administrative leave for yet another domestic violence incident with his ex-wife. seems his roid rage is getting the best of him.
