My youngest child's mother had me arrested for Domestic Abuse/ bodily harm. After alleging I slapped my daughter whom we don't share across the face. Officers stated and took note my child had no physical marks to support the claim. Yet according to the alleged victim after she supposedly took me to the ground as stated. I assaulted her upon getting up. Her testimony from the police report, deposition, and protection order hearing have all been inconsistent. Furthermore I have text messages between me and her leading up to the time in which she states she is to beat me upon returning home. I have also in the text days before her stating what if I lied and said you beat me. Considering the only way to let you leave is to hate you. I have photos supporting my claim yet was still charged.I have read the responses which are very helpful. Yet my question was more concerning is it possible to file a suit while or after the criminal charges are dismissed? Furthermore the local law enforcement has also not be truthful in this case Or it's handling of the case considering the incident occurred on 8/15/2013 yet they questioned her and her witness together and left a report with the two and retrieved it the following day. Officers also didn't turn in their report till ten days after incident. And was recorded via dash cam refusing to hear my witness testimony yet reported none of my witness wanted to give a statement. I wish to know what all parties can be sued once my innocence is reclaimed or are there actions that can be taken now?
