Family violence shocks one Georgia community

Many people tend to question what drives a person to violence against those they love.

What does Georgia law say about stalking?

As tempting as it may be, a Georgia resident may want to avoid following a former spouse around town or simply watching in a manner that could be conceived as menacing or harassing. That former spouse may just call the police and accuse the other party of stalking. Of course, an individual does not just have to physically follow or watch a person in a way that incites fear to be accused of this crime.

Former football player arrested for assault and battery

In the last few years, numerous current and former professional football players have made headlines involving domestic violence charges. Recently, yet another former NFL player made the news after an alleged incident at a child's birthday party. By the time police left the Georgia residence, former wide receiver Mike Thomas was under arrest for assault and battery.

Dealing with false allegations of family violence

True cases of child abuse should be dealt with by law enforcement and the criminal courts. However, not all allegations of family violence are true. Allegations of abuse could arise in contentious child custody battles when one party believes that such accusations will bolster his or her position in court. Georgia residents who have reason to believe that they could face false accusations of child abuse should take steps to protect themselves.
