Topeka domestic abuse survivor trembling over DA’s decision to pass down misdemeanors

In domestic law on September 16, 2011 at 4:17 pm

PLEASE COMMENT ON ORIGINAL ARTICLE! We need OUTRAGE to stop this political game playing at the expense of women. Right now in Topeka Kansas—DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is LEGAL. Since last week’s decision of the County DA to stop prosecuting Domestic Violence in the city limits, there have been 35 Domestic Violence arrests that have WALKED with no charges!
The City manager is considering a repeal in the City Ordinances that Domestic Violence is NOT A CRIME within the city.

rowbar, it was a misdemeanor. I’ve had both my wrist broken and it was a misdemeanor.”
When Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor decided to hand over misdemeanor cases, like Dombrowski’s, to the city, she knew it would weigh heaviest on victims of domestic violence. Knowing the consequences a victim could face when the abuser is arrested, then released, she advises victims not to call the police. She says, “You, as a survivor, know how to survive. You just keep surviving. If you call the police right now, and God forbid you end up with the city, you might die.”
Dombrowski says she’s disgusted at how poorly survivors are treated after making the terrifying decision to call authorities. She says community leaders see it as, “Let’s put these victims in with weed control and dog at large and parking tickets. That’s how important you are to our community.”
Dombrowski says the word “misdemeanor” has such a harmless connotation and wishes people knew the horrible actions hiding behind it. She says, “I was pushed through plate glass windows and if I had not been in a relationship with this man, he would be in prison.”
If the city does decide to take on the domestic abuse cases, Dombrowski hopes it’s only until funding can be restored at the District Attorney’s office. She says, “We’ve just jumped back 30 years into the dark ages, and it’s very dark. The lights just went out in Topeka.”
She says many times the misdemeanor charges get reduced to disorderly conduct and destruction of personal property, and she can’t imagine how easy the abusers will have it in city courts. Dowbrowski says you can help domestic violence victims of Topeka by demanding more money for the District Attorney’s office, so they can continue to protect the public.

Wednesday morning, Topeka Interim City Manager Dan Stanley said there is some thought being given to repealing the city ordinances to force the prosecution back on the county. He says it will then be up to the D.A. to prioritize what cases should be prosecuted.
Stanley says he’s concerned about what will happen to the individuals whose cases are not being prosecuted. He says, “We know of three cases where judges have released the people accused of domestic violence back out because it their understanding that the district attorney will not prosecute and so there may be more of these.”
Topeka Police Officers are forwarding misdemeanor cases involving domestic violence to the District Attorney’s Office. Stanley says the D.A.’s office has already turned away 30 cases. He believes the  victims and their families are most affected.

16 years after enduring constant physical abuse, the memories still shake Claudine Dombrowski to the core. She says, “I was beaten with a c

Domestic violence is on the rise in Shawnee County

The number of cases coming across Taylor’s desk is growing. “Our year to date projections total is going to be an increase of about 80 percent for the domestic battery cases that we filed,” Taylor said.

“I remember curling up in a ball to protect her from the kicks,” domestic violence survivor, Claudine Dombrowski, described.

Claudine Dombrowski is a survivor to domestic violence, a cycle she went back to many times. “I had a choice I could see my daughter or I could never see her again. The abuser had complete control, so I got my daughter back and went back to him.”

Claudine fights to help women like herself who have fallen in the hands of abuse. “This was the crow bar, and then I was beaten and raped,” Dombrowski said.

She said she never reported her beatings until after her daughter was born.

Claudine said even if you haven’t been a victim, you probably know someone who has and you can help them. “Don’t think it’s you…get rid of the scarlet letter of shame, it’s the most important thing.”

Taylor’s office gave us statisitics on Domestic Violence in
he DA’s office received 1267 cases, out of those 508 were filed. Starting from January 1st until October 16
there have been 1347 cases received, and out of those 849 cases have been filed.
meaning an eighty percent increase on Domestic Battery.

A Kansas Judge consistently has shown how unethical Family Courts are. The story is simple, a mother, Claudine Dombrowski, loses custody to her abuser and the Family Court think that she will go away. They hope she will give up. They are counting on her shutting up. But there is a problem with that, this woman has friends. She has lots and lots of friends that have gone through the same corruption of Family Courts and unethical Judges, Court Whores and the like. This Judge has gone as far as not allowing this mothers child from attending her loving Grandmothers funeral. This Judge wants to make problems because of a tribute video?
Not on my watch…… You cannot shut us all up Judge….we will not allow you to tarnish the memory of “Granny”….hold us all in contempt…..and watch out for falling houses.

In this provocative and well-researched book, Margaret Hagen, Ph.D, reveals how expert psychological testimony is a total fraud, showing how the courts have increasingly embraced not a cutting-edge science but, instead, a discipline that represents a terrifying retreat into fantasy and hearsay; a discipline propelled by powerful propaganda, arrogance, and greed.

Dr. Hagen sounds a clarion wake-up call, offering some startling – and much-needed – recommendations about how we can reclaim our own ability to judge and supplying vital advice on how we can protect ourselves from the ravages of psychological testimony in our own lives.

Professor Margaret A. Hagen “A damning indictment of the psychologizing – and undermining – of the American legal system. With righteous wrath and devastating wit, this sweeping critique should stir national debate.”
