I last wrote about the final opportunity W was given to physically abuse Kae. He spent the next 10 days away due to a restraining order which he broke by contacting her via a friends phone. He now faces a felony domestic violence charge. This scenario drums up another emotional rollercoaster for the fam.
Now it’s a big mess with a District Attorney, a defense attorney, a witness (who by the way was not at the scene), a police report, subpoenas, and a judge and jury. Yep, no plea bargaining for W – he’s going for the jury trial. This crap could drag on for a while or if we’re fortunate it will happen on the first jury trial date that has been scheduled.
Am I pissed off that he hurt her? You damn right I am. Do I want to see him go to prison – not necessarily, but since he continues to chalk up his actions as an accident, maybe I do. I definitely think the consequences need to speak to him and help him understand there is not one thing about choosing to throw something at your wife that is accidental. It was a conscious decision.
Maybe sitting behind bars would cause him to take a deeper look inside. You see, all along he has blamed everything that’s gone wrong on Kae. We all know that it takes two people to screw up a marriage. Even his family calls it an accident. More than likely he stands to loose his job. That is sad. Job vs. life? Well consider this scenario. If the fork or knife had impaled a different body part Kae could’ve lost her life – what about that? I know that isn’t what happened but who would’ve thought the fork would impale her hand?
If her drinking was taking a toll before this all happened I can assure you this exacerbated her alcohol intake. After his 10 days away, (restraining order) he came back and played Mr. Nice guy for about 2 days. Then it started all over again – she was angry now. Probably spewing plenty of not nice words and threats about what would happen if he touched her again. He moved out. Of course he’s too chicken shit to discuss this idea with her – he waited until she was away from the house to pack a bag and go.
This act started Kae on a giant rollercoaster ride of do I, or do I not want a divorce. He stayed in constant contact via text messages or phone calls, always telling her how much he loves her and how they need some time apart. W also claimed that he couldn’t be around her without another person as it wasn’t safe for him. That is laughable! Well his initial idea that a couple of months apart has turned into several months apart. Early on she was holding her own – not overdoing the alcohol. But it took it’s toll….the alcohol took over and thank God she took herself to rehab.
Oh, he’d love to know she’s in rehab. That would play right into his attorney’s hands in court. Blasting her for being an alcoholic, telling the jury how she can’t think straight, how stupid she is and how she’s out of control, has no memory of anything that ever happened. Trying to place the blame anywhere but on W. He will not know she’s there – do you think he should be privy to this info?
