Legal Question

Asked on: 9/11/09, 12:06 pm

I was served an ExParte Order for Protection. My ex-girlfriend alleges previous domestic abuse, harassment and threats. She did get hurt by accident when she initiated fight but she states a broken Jaw! She was ok a little later and never sought medical attention or talked to law enforcement. This is blown all out of proportion. We just broke up last week when she came over with hickeys all over and I told her to get out. She has a new boyfriend and he's the one who has been threatening me and taunting me to fight, which we haven't. I was driving home (we live in a SMALL community) and we live basically on the same street. I drove by her house and this guy jumps in the middle of the road, arms up in the air, takes his shirt off and is yelling at me. I yelled for him to get a retraining order, because thats what my girlfriend had said she was going to do when I went to get my stuff. That's when her mother called the cops and told them that I said I was going to kill my ex, which I did not say! They weren't even outside at the time, and conveniently when the cop arrived the boyfriend was gone and they never mentioned him. When the cop came to talk to me I told him what happened and he looked at me and asked who the boyfriend was and hadn't even talked to him. She claimed we had broken up 3 weeks ago which is also not true. She claims I am following her - again untrue. We have the same friends and a small town. The OFP says there isn't going to be a hearing but I can request one. Should I? Also, can local law enforcement press charges for the things she alleges in the OFP? Please help because I have to request this hearing by Monday 09-14. Her mother hates me and backs up what the ex is alleging and so does her sister. That's what the cop told me, "they said you were going to kill her - all 3 of them, you mean to tell me 3 people say this and you tell me a completely different story and I am supposed to believe you? That's a Felony" Please help
