I'm a survivor of domestic abuse. Over the course of my life I've had to put a domestic violence protection order on 3 of my ex boyfriends, which all them violated the protection order because they just see it as a piece of paper. I escaped from my violent ex boyfriend back in February of this year (2018). Not long after I left him I put a domestic violence protection order on him because I thought he would finally leave me alone but unfortunately that didn't happen. He violated the protection order twice. The first time he violated the protection order was on May 24th, 2018, he snuck onto our property and assaulted me by trying to pull me through a tiny dog door, which caused me to get injured and I'm still having problems with my right shoulder, they put out a warrant for his arrest for assault and battery and violating a protection order, he was arrested 3 days later, spent 2 days in jail and bonded out which his bond was only $1,000 for both charges. You only have to pay 10%, so he got bonded out for $100. We had already gone to court once but it was continued because he had gotten a court appointed attorney. While waiting for the next court date, he violated the protection order again on June 12th, 2018, it was around midnight when he contacted me by sending me a text through the texting app called Kik saying "You think you are protected? I'm not done with you yet", I called the police, they came out, saw the text, took pictures, took a report, the officer's went down to the magistrates office and got a warrant for his arrest and he was arrested later in the evening at his job. He saw a judge the next day and his bond was set at $8,000 and if he would've bonded out, he would've had to wear an ankle bracelet. They had set a new court date for all 3 charges for July 18th, 2018, of course I had to be there because I was the victim and my mother was a witness to both cases. The D.A. who had been working for me (which they should've kept in contact with me about everything before the court date) but they pulled my mother and I outside of the courtroom before court started and told us that they offered him a plea deal while he had been in jail for 5 weeks and the offer was, he pleads guilty to assault and battery and violating the protection order and he would get out on the day of court and they would drop the second charge of violating the protection order otherwise it would go to trial. He talked to his court appointed attorney and he took the plea deal. He was released on the day of court he was charged with assault and battery and violating a protection order which is on his record now (both of the charges are misdemeanors), the judge sentenced him to be put on probation for 18 months, he has to take abuser treatment classes, get a mental health assessment, do community service and has a suspended jail sentence of 60 days if he violates his probation he will have to do his suspended sentence of only 60 days, if he violates the protection order then they said it would be worse. Since my mother was a witness to both incidents, the judge told him that the he can't have any type of contact with her, the protection order is still active. To guys like him, a protection order is just a piece of paper. I want there to be a law put in place that anyone convicted of violating a domestic violence protection order or any type of protection order, should be put on a violation of a protection order registry for the rest of their natural life and must sign it and if they move to a different state they have to register there. It's the same concept for sex offenders that have to register. Please sign this petition for the victims, survivors and for the families that have lost their loved one due to domestic abuse and the abusers that violated the protection order against them. This is extremely important to me and I hope it's important to victims, survivors and to the families that lost a loved one due to someone violating a protection order. It's sad that it's an ongoing problem with domestic violence and people violating a domestic violence protection order because like my ex they don't care about a piece of paper because that's all it is to them, just a piece of paper. Please sign this petition so this can be made into a law! This is for all the victims, survivors (like myself) and for the families that lost a loved one due to an abuser violating a domestic violence protection order! Sign and spread the word to make this a law so that the one's violating a protection order have to be put on a registry for the horrible and traumatizing things they did and do because it just being on their record is not enough! I care about the victims, survivors and the families that lost a loved one because of abusers who violated the protection order! I have became an advocate for domestic violence awareness. Let's make this a law and get Shay's law passed!
