I want to make people aware of Order of Protections & restraining orders being taken out on innocent people based on false allegations so a vindictive person can gain control with the help of authorities. The false accusers are being allowed to walk away and pay NO consequences for swearing to lies to get these orders! This happens too much, yes, I know it’s mainly done by women & it needs to stop!
I know that, in my case, the judge didn’t know me. Even though I talked to the magistrate the day BEFORE the order of protection was taken out on me & I told him what I heard Ned had planned for me. They didn’t know that I might have super powers where I could cause him bodily harm 4 1/2 miles away. SO they had no choice but to protect Ned from me. BUT when they found out this order of protection was based on lies that he swore to and he used the county in a cunning and vindictive way to get me kicked out of my home – NED SHOULD HAVE HAD TO PAY SOME CONSEQUENCES INSTEAD OF BEING ALLOWED TO WALK AWAY LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED!!!! I could care less that the jails are full, I’m tired of hearing that excuse, there are other ways to make people like him pay. Make them pay a few thousand dollars to Safe Space or another domestic violence charity, is one suggestion. And they should have to pay all legal fees and any other costs to the person the order was filed against from the day the order is placed to the court date.
This is what I want changed! That’s the only way people like Ned and other women are going to stop making false allegations to get these order of protections & restraining orders to gain control over an innocent person! They need to pay some kind of consequences for their lies and trying to ruin an innocent person for their benefit. These laws were made for TRUE domestic violence victims. The courts should be ashamed to let people like Ned Lines use them like this!
Here’s part of my story:
I lived with Ned Lines since January 1992. We moved to Tennessee from Ft. Myers, Florida together.
The house this all started over we built TOGETHER!
I’ve got a LOT of story to tell – BUT I’m going to leave most of it (the good stuff) for a later time! You better believe I’m gonna be telling it. I know a lot of lies are being told about me – it’s happened before and is still happening to this day. I have no reason to lie. I don’t make a living lying, conning and cheating people. But I guess that’s why I can’t claim to make $12K a day, either. I’d rather keep living the life I live than a life where I have to cover my ass all the time and put on a good front for everyone I meet and know and hope they don’t find out who the real me is! I don’t pretend to be something I’m not and if you like me great and if you don’t that’s ok, too, cause to tell the truth – I don’t really care! I think the less you worry about what everyone thinks of you the better off you are & that’s worked pretty well for me! Pretending to be something your not all the time seems like an awful kind of life to live.
Let me get to where this Order of Protection was taken out on me by Edward (Ned) Bernard Lines based on false allegations. I had been wanting to leave Ned for years. I use to be a very private person – till all this crap – and told very few people my business, so everyone thought everything was going good with me & Ned. They had no idea I was living with someone I felt trapped with, I could NEVER talk to him or even ask him a question without him blowing up, that’s not a very happy life to live with someone. Even though I never told others how bad things were at home – I NEVER made it a secret to Ned that I wanted to leave him! I never posted lies on Facebook or emailed my friends telling them lies about Ned like he did me to try to get people to feel sorry for me & think Ned was such a bad person. Now that I think about it, he’s always played the victim – how manly is that!
What I did to Ned was build him up to people and help make him into something we both knew he wasn’t. In a way I deserved everything I got! I knew what kind of person he was and I sat back and watched him take advantage of everyone he could, especially our neighbor. Even though I might deserve what I got does NOT mean I’m going to sit back and take it – that I will NOT do!
In July my Doberman, Dragon, was very sick with bone cancer and I knew he wasn’t going to be around much longer. So I decided when his time came I would just have one Doberman – Lacy & I could handle her by myself (yes, one reason I stayed was for MY dogs) and I was going to leave Ned! He knew he wasn’t going to be able to trick me into staying & paying half the bills much longer. I could tell he was ready to go his separate ways, too. He had lost a LOT of weight the last year and in his mind he was someone he wasn’t (this happens to him every few years). And I found out he was cheating on me with younger girls – young enough to be his daughters, yep pretty disgusting – mostly on their part, some of these young girls even have him around their very young children. So – he had to figure out a way to get my half of our house from me. His first plan was to bully & threaten me into signing over my half of the house by signing a QuitClaim Deed to him. He had told me he would give me $50K, which he didn’t have & I knew I’d never see and he promised me this would be my best deal. And if I did not sign the house over to him he let me know I would lose everything I had worked my ass off for, “you watch and see, I promise you that” he would tell me over & over. I came close to signing the QuitClaim deed to him after Dragon died, but had bad feelings because of the way he was acting. His next plan, with the advice from his awesome friend, was to get the police involved and then to file the Order of Protection on me to get me kicked out of the house! If it wasn’t for my lawyer I would have had to leave my home from Aug 29th to the court date Sept 12th! Ned knew and did NOT care one teeny tiny bit that I had NO WHERE TO GO! Plus I had Lacy to worry about. Ned had moved out of our house August 6th & wasn’t even living in the home at the time he did this. Ned has another house to live in that has everything he needs – I had NOTHING else & no where else to go with Lacy!
On our court date – Sept 12th – the order of protection was dropped. My lawyer told me I was right – “this is all about the house and YOUR money you have coming from your business you sold.” I knew it!! And Ned wanted ME to pay the court costs for this! Is he something or what!
At court Ned also wanted me to give up my freedom of speech and NOT say anything about him! Sounds like someone has a lot to hide!
All I can say is Ned had a lot more to be concerned about than me “physically harming him”!
