[Excerpts] A jailed lawman will have to undergo psychological testing before a judge will even consider lowering his bond. Oly Ivy, 30, has been in jail since early Sunday morning. He's accused of using a taser on his live-in girlfriend. Ivy's bond was set at $100,000... Records from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education, or TECLOSE, show Oly Ivy was employed as an officer in Portsmouth Ohio... That was followed by seven stints in Texas: Lott Police Department for four months, Marlin Police Department for eight months, McGregor Police for 10 months, Valley Mills Police for nine months, Hearne Police for 11 months, and the Milam County Sheriff's Office for two years and seven months. Ivy served as Oakwood's Police chief for two months. Monday evening the city council voted to terminate him... During his time on the witness stand, [Chief Ivy's father] Morris Ivy called his son's live-in girlfriend in Oakwood, a manic depressant. The 72-year-old said he couldn't remember the name of the child his son had with the accuser... Ivy himself was called as a witness. Smith asked him, "Is it also your testimony that these domestic violence events have never occurred in your life before?" "Yes" answered Oly Ivy. "(alleged victim) is very violent"... When asked if an ex-girlfriend in Ohio claimed to be abused and in was in hiding, Ivy said that wasn't true. "Do you know where she is?" asked Smith. "No sir," answered Ivy. Portsmouth Municipal Court records show Ivy was charged with domestic violence in December of 2003. The case was dismissed and the charges dropped two months later, when the victim failed to appear in court. In the Leon County courtroom, District Judge Ken Keeling was shown pictures of the girlfriend Ivy lived with in Oakwood. The pictures were taken by Tanya Foster, an employee of Leon County Victim Services. Foster said she took the pictures two days after the victim claimed the assault occurred. Using a laser pointer on an overhead screen, Foster pointed to several pictures showing a woman with a black eye, bruised arm, and what Foster said were taser burn marks near the eye and on the woman's side. Texas Ranger Jim Huggins also testified for the prosecution. Huggins said another Leon County officer tipped Ivy off that a warrant had been issued for his arrest... After a two-and-a-half hour hearing, Judge Keeling decided Ivy's bond would stay at $100,000 for now. He ordered the former police chief to undergo a psychological evaluation in Huntsville. The judge will make a decision based on the doctor's report. Whether he posts bond or not, Ivy is currently under an emergency protective order to stay away from his girlfriend, their young child, and her other two children [Full article here]

    I am the person that pressed charges previously on Oly. When I read what you wrote about the non-ending prayer for those who got away and still live in fear, it truly, truly touched my heart. Thank you for your support.

      If he says all of that is behind him or it was all false charges and accusations - THINK.
