My Story – part of it, anyway

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”!


Ned Lines - False Accuser!

I lived with Ned Lines for 22+ years – 21 of those years he was grossly obese. In 2013 after meeting his “special friend” and with the help of my plastic surgeon he lost over 130 pounds and in his mind he was something he wasn’t and never will be. His goal was to find a new roommate and steal my half of our home and MY money from a business, I owned by MYSELF, to be able to keep his fake life going. After his threats and bullying didn’t work to get me to sign over my half of our home to him – he decided he’d have me served with an Order of Protection to get me forced out of my home. SO – Now you know what a true PUSSY looks like – I have the papers to prove he’s nothing more than a pussy! He’s even admitted to me back in Aug 2013 that he’s not a “real man” and that’s the only thing that’s ever came out of his wreck of a mouth that was the truth!

Ned Lines's Messages to his Facebook buddies about me

Facebook messages Ned Lines sent to his friends Mary Lamers & John Eric Robinson in August 2011 proves Ned knew OVER THREE YEARS AGO I wanted to leave him. I didn’t tell him how he claims I did in these messages. I told Ned BEFORE we found out he had cancer.  When you read these messages – remember – Ned Lines is the one who filed an Order of Protection agains ME based on his lies.  I had plenty of reasons to file one against him, that I could have backed up,  but chose not to.

  2. I appreciate your courage to expose your abuser and your efforts to inform others about the injustice of false accusations and police reports, which sociopaths exploit to harm their targets.

  3. I thank you also for all you have done. But that being said i also have to ask what exactly have you accomplished? I would dare to guess nothing is the obvious answer. I’m not demeaning your efforts but what I am saying is this…people who have been abused by the courts all have some things in common. They tend to be consumed with there case. Their lives suffer from their obsession and lack of direction. Everyone wants to talk me I and my rather than observe the issue as a whole. There is no organized effort to effect any actual goal or specific result. Until victims of due process violations and procedural abuse form a common bond around a common goal nothing will change. If you want proof of this just scour the internet and find all the personal blogs and amateur web sites on these issues that lay dormant from years ago. We are the definition of insanity… how about try doing something different to get a different result ? Tough Love…. yours truly DL

    • What I have accomplished, so far, is to get the way Order of Protections and Restraining Orders are handled in my area changed.
      I’m far from “consumed by my case”! But I do have to say what my accuser tried to do to me worked wonders in MY favor! Besides for only three short months I can’t say I suffered. My order of protection that my ex-roommate filed against me was the biggest gift I’ve ever received in disguise. If we would have ended things my way he’d be living in our big house right now with all our belongings. And I’d be working all the time or living with someone else I didn’t want to be with just to survive. All I wanted to do was leave him and I wanted NOTHING from him! But he had big plans of stealing everything I owned with the help of Sevier County TN. Needless to say his plan backfired on him terribly! I am now living in the EXACT house I had always wanted, I don’t have to work any more than I want to and I love the work I do! I still can’t believe how perfectly everything worked out for me, thanks to him!
      Also I’ve met some very good friends and interesting people by making my story public! That’s how you found me!
      A few of us have “organized” together to try to get the law changed. And I’ve personally helped several people get their restraining orders dropped before court or dismissed when they went to court. I feel that having someone to talk to and know they have someone on their side makes them want to fight more for their rights!
      Plus all you have to do is post something once and it’s on the internet forever, not much effort in that!

      I haven’t read my “about” page in over a year! Guess I need to update it a bit!

    • accidental pressed post…. continued.

      I was going off the last sentence of your post ((…still nothing has changed) Any actual effect is a good one. In my case the reverse and remand by the appeals court finding the PO against me void by its uling also found tens of thousands of other PO cases void. The District Attorney and lower courts had to stop granting the PO’s in the same manner and provide more notice but… so far very few people if anyone even knows they can vacate their Void judgments. Working on it… to be continued.

      • I STILL want the law changed to hold FALSE accusers accountable for filing false restraining orders and order of protections to gain control. My order of protection was dismissed the day I went to court but I know too many people who aren’t as lucky as I was and it still makes me angry when I hear these people’s stories.

  5. Change takes time and diligent, never ending effort. Betty, you have done wonders in such a short period of time. TN is back asswards as are other poverty states that use DV Federal funding in order to supplement their economic revenue. The jails are full there because of this source of manipulated revenue, just like in AL, GA, TX, NM, MS, LA and KY.

  6. I can vouch for you Betty. I thank God I found you. It was your words and strength that kept me from losing it. After many sleepless nights from being distraught over how someone I once loved could falsely accuse me of domestic violence my tpo was DISMISSED!!! I’m taking your advice and fighting back. Her lies have cost me thousands of hard earned dollars and I want restitution. Thanks for your letter and talking to my attorney. I’ll find out what the next step is this week or next then I’ll let you post my tpo.
    Thanks for all your help and kindness, Kevin Crais

  7. I can vouch for you to Betty. You know that. I couldn’t have gotten through this without your help. Knowing you were in the courtroom Thurs made me more confident and I’m extremely happy with the outcome. I want to leave a review on the legal website but can’t find it. You can use me for a reference anytime.
