The domestic violence charges against me were dropped. Why was nothing done to my ex (at the time STBX ) for her false domestic violence charge?
I cannot answer your question specifically to the laws of Ohio as I am not licensed in that State. Just because someone does not pursue a case or even loses at trial does not mean that the allegations were or were not true. The court cannot make the assumption that because the matter was dropped that the charges were necessarily lies. People dismiss cases everyday for various reason. Often they may not be able to locate an important witness, they may not be able to secure time off of work, or any of a thousand other reasons. If you expended attorney fees in defending the action, many jurisdictions will allow you to ask for your fees when the matter is dropped.
