I’m really impressed with how far this guy went to fight this injustice. Not only did he fight the original case until he won, he then went after the prosecutor. I tip my hat to him. I hope that Brett Kavanaugh takes action against his false accusers and those who have slandered his name.
Something needs to be done to prevent these coordinated false charges at the 11th hour to cause chaos during the SCOTUS nomination process.
Take Note, “Dr. Ford…”
WAY TO GO, Vladek! It’s been a LONG fight. https://t.co/skrC3yVK2E

Vladek Filler was accused of sexually assaulting his wife, Ligia, in April 2007, who told police he had attacked her repeatedly since 2005. At the time of this accusation, and Vladek’s arrest, he and his wife were going through a divorce and battling for custody of their children.
During the divorce, Vladek told his wife he planned to move to Georgia with their two sons to be closer to his mother. After that, according to the University of Michigan’s National Registry of Exonerations (NRE), Ligia “ran into the street from the family home holding one of the boys, yelling that she wanted to kill her husband for molesting and abusing their children and that she feared he would kill their 12-year-old son.”
Vladek’s case wouldn’t go to trial until January 2009, and by that time, a social services investigation found no evidence of child abuse. Ligia testified at trial that Vladek would become angry and force her to have sex with him, one time allegedly because she used his bank account to pay for her haircut. She also claimed Vladek physically assaulted her.
“A physician testified that he could find no signs of sexual abuse. A police officer testified that Ligia had a bruise on her arm which she said was the result of Filler’s abuse,” it says on the NRE.
During trial, Vladek’s defense attorney argued that Ligia only made the claims when it became clear there would be a custody battle, but prosecutor Mary Kellett claimed there was no evidence of such. More
How much coaching do you think Ford and Ramirez are getting.
“A nurse who interviewed Ligia told her to cry during testimony to make her claims more believable. This part was edited out of a recording of the interview.” https://t.co/O5lMUVsjpg
