  2. I wish I could give you the details about all the barriers and obstacles I have had to overcome. The investigation and prosecution of this case is absolute farce. Everywhere I turn there is police cover-up, desception, and corruption. All because HE is one of them. My strength is waving... I wish there was somewhere else to turn.

  4. 1st phase - Victory!!! He motioned to amend his bail conditions. Wanted his firearms back, wanted to have contact with our residence, and wanted to be free from searches and bail checks. All were denied! Maybe there is some justice left in the justice system after all.

  5. There's never victory. The worse things get for him the more you have to be careful. Some accused folks handle these things maturely and some pop. I understand being relieved that the courts are working though.

  6. True... but after such chaos and turmoil, it feels like a victory. "Popping" has been my fear from the get-go. I'm trying very hard to be DONE with being afraid or intimidated. By allowing myself to feel that way, I allow him to continue to control me. I will take the small successes as relief. Another hundred pounds lifted off my shoulders.
