I was arrested for violating a restraining order and for failure to appear. However, there was no injunction. The officer that took my ex-husband's report searched the NCIC system and found the same, but still filed the report for charges. In addition, even though the Prosecutor's office was notified that there was no injunction, and had evidence of the dismissal of the filed temporary injunction, they still filed the charges. As a result of this arrest, my children and I have directly suffered emotional and physical damages as well as financial loss due to me losing the job I was supposed to start. The record prevented it. What can I do? By the way, I am a low income single mother of three with a disabled child and cannot afford an attorney.Thank you all for the responses. I sincerely appreciate it. There was no probable cause. The officer who responded to my ex-husband's call searched the NCIC system and saw that, in fact, there was no injunction. However, because they were friends, he filed the report anyway. Then, the PA's office clearly did not investigate before filing charges, because there was still no injunction. In fact, the injunction was dismissed with prejudice, which to my understanding meant that the Court felt that my ex misused the court process. The injunction hearing was in March and they did not file charges until September. The arrest was in October. After my arrest, the PD conducted an internal investigation and found the officer at fault. Does that increase my chances?
