court tomorrow

tomorrow is the pre-trial conference for the criminal charges against me. i attempted last week to get housing at the domestic violence shelter in my town and was told that because i have pending assault charges against me (despite my explaining the entire story and despite finding information from the coalition against d.v. that victims are arrested all too frequently) they can't provide me housing at this time with victims of dom violence since technically i am the perpetrator. yeah. that's right. this is my state and my town. totally f'ed up.

good news is that ah got crazy on sunday in front of witnesses and i recorded it all and it will just further show that he lied to the cops and created this whole fiasco. i also hope that it will be useable in the custody battle that is sure to ensue once the criminal case is over.

anyway, keep me in your thoughts if you would tomorow. the news of my being arrested continues to be republished online and in local newspapers in my hometown and the town i work in and because of that my employer has backed away some from the supportive stance they took initially when they figured it wouldn't be a huge deal (bc it shouldn;t be and normally wouldn't be publicized like this but ah is clearly behind it). so, i'm on probation at work essentially whether i am found innocent or not and the best i have been told is that in june my boss and her boss will assess the damage (the reputation of the organization i guess is being tarnished bc of having me there and having this news constantly republished) and review my employment. i am not hopeful for the long term.

trying to take it one day at a time and focus right now just on tomorrow. i hope it will all be dismissed and then i can go about dealing with the divorce and custody.

ah threatened to tell the court i tried to "witness tamper" and admitted he'd lie if need be (and that's what i recorded). so, my lawyer has that recording and is planning to play it for the prosecutor tomorrow before court and assures me that it will be dismissed. we'll see.

Sometimes the very rules that protect victims also perpetuate victimization.

Stay strong! I am rooting for Team WTBH!

P.S. any chance you can move someday?

tuffgirl- hell yes to the can i move someday.... i think the key is getting a custody arrangement hammered out and the way things are going with my job, i will be able to argue that i have to move for employment and hopefully that'll work out. but i guess that's getting too far ahead. for now i just need to focus on trying to sleep tonight. i am a nervous wreck.

take a tylenol pm or something, usually I don't go for that, but you want to look your best tomorrow, not all stressed out. And stay calm tomorrow, no matter what happens.

You'll be fine.

If the ex-husband is capable of influencing the media than the best option is to move. He is clearly insane & it seems to be a uphill battle. I hope I'm wrong but the image I get is your town is like a small little town stuck in '50s.

Dear WTBH, you sound like one tough cookie. He is trying his psycho, borderline, alcoholic best to bring you down. Best of luck tomorrow. I believe that eventually the truth will come to light, and you will be free of this nutjob.

When you are, go far, far, far away, and be at peace.

Hugs and serenity to you!

(((WTBH))) - Of COURSE the codie bus is equipped with that Remember how many of us wanted to do that in the first place? In fact there are going to be SO many of us "there" with you, we may need to borrow the SR jet that seats more.

Hugs and prayers,

Amy

Adding my prayers & good thoughts ~ that the truth will be seen and known by ALL in this situation ~ from the lawyers, judges, media, employers and even the little local town gossips that like to talk about things they know NOTHING about ~

I pray that when you walk out of court this morning you are given the strength, courage and wisdom to hold your head up HIGH and Proud ~ I pray that truly the "More will be revealed" is apparent in all aspects of this nightmare for you!!!

strong PINK HUGS sent to you!
Rita
