My friend's ex has been charged with Domestic Violence and served time . He is still under a restraining order and probation but he still drinks and he shows up at her house all the time She lets him see the girls because they cry that they miss and love him . But he still rages and looses his temper constantly . Recently she sent me some texts to the extent of , " If he thought I was going to turn him in , I believe he would kill me " or " If I go missing , it wasn't an accident " ( paraphrased for privacy ) . I'm not a lawyer so I'm trying to read CO state DB laws and it seems that even if she did turn him in , he could just come and kill her in two years when he is released since he has only one previous DB conviction . Is this true ?Also, she refuses to leave her house because she runs her business from there and it is her only means of income. Her ex pays no child support.
