Bischof Law Unfair to Innocent Fathers

By: Jeffery M. Leving

Chicago, IL – The “Cindy Bischof Law” has the potential for victimizing innocent Illinois fathers and may spread nationwide.   Governor Rod Blagojevich signed this legislation which becomes effective as law on January 1, 2009.

The Bischof Law is a draconian measure that will allow judges to order anyone, mostly men and fathers, to wear a GPS tracking device if they are simply considered to be at a high risk for domestic violence without being found guilty of any crime.

There is a presumption of guilt without the benefit of a trial, yet the foundation of our criminal justice system is that a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Perhaps such a drastic measure would be warranted if the men forced to wear the devices had fair trials and were found to be guilty of violent or dangerous crimes.

However, the Bischof Law empowers judges with the ability to mandate the GPS tracking device on anyone who is accused of violating an order of protection without being convicted of the violation – and orders of protection are widely granted with minimal evidence of the potential for violence.

In the 1970s, orders of protection (also commonly referred to as “restraining orders“) became a tool to help protect battered women. However, in the rush to protect the abused, the rights of the accused have been violated on a large scale.

According to the Justice Department, two million restraining orders are issued in the United States .

The vast majority of these are related to domestic violence allegations, yet research shows these orders often do not even involve an accusation of actual violence. All that is needed to obtain an order is a claim that the person to be restrained “acted in a way that scared me” or was “verbally abusive” – what’s known as “shout at your spouse, lose your house.”

Such orders have become so commonplace that the Illinois Bar Journal calls them “part of the gamesmanship of divorce.”

Electronic tagging devices can be appropriate as a condition of parole or probation. The Cindy Bischof Law goes far beyond this, placing long-term electronic tags on men who have never been found guilty of any crime.

  1. This may be a good idea to help protect women who are in danger, but I personally don’t see judges acting on this. The FR bias runs so deep in the family courts now that I really don’t see why this FR guy is so up in arms. It won’t happen. Family court judges don’t follow their own state code with reference to domestic violence when is it deemed to be a factor in determining custody, and judges ignore this. Actually….many family court judges deserve a BS award…

  2. Such language from a sweet little old mom. I am so shocked. Here I though motherhood was all sweetness and light not such malevolence. Do you talk that way to your children when upset with them?

    Tsk tsk. My first big disappointment of 2009. Whats a FR activist to do when confronted with such hatred. Is this a hate site? Do you hate all lawyers, all FR’s advocates, all men or are you just venting because Mr. Leving did the right thing in discussing this outrage against men.

  3. Answers to your QUESTIONS?

    Such language from a sweet little old mom.

    Who said I was sweet, little or old?

    I am so shocked.

    Yes, I’m sure you are shocked! How shocking that a “woman” should dare speak against a “man” (and I DO use that term loosely with FR’ers)

    Here I though motherhood was all sweetness and light not such malevolence.

    Motherhood is sweetness and light, it’s “dads” like you that associate malevolence with Motherhood….Womanhood for that matter.

    Do you talk that way to your children when upset with them?

    I treat my children very well even when I am upset with them.

    Tsk tsk. My first big disappointment of 2009.

    If that’s your first “big” disappointment of 2009 then continue to follow this blog…..there’s more where that came from, although you would think you would welcome the change of disappointment from your penis size.

    Whats a FR activist to do when confronted with such hatred.

    A FR activist shouldn’t be lurking around MR blogs only to start trouble.

    Is this a hate site?

    Not unless you want it to be, ‘sluggo’.

    Do you hate all lawyers, all FR’s advocates, all men or are you just venting because Mr. Leving did the right thing in discussing this outrage against men.

    I do not hate ALL lawyers, I do not like MOST FR Advocates, I do not hate ALL men, in fact I LOVE my husband, he is my soul mate, best friend and equal. He is a REAL man who does not believe in the junk science of PAS or other crap that spews out of the mouths of pigs like Mr. Leving….oh yeah and he doesn’t abuse, drive drunk w/his children, sexually abuse his daughter or anything else likes yourself or your ‘comrades’ .

  4. Jeffery M. Leving is a fucked up attorney and fathers’ rights advocate.

    I”m cracking up off of this because I thought it was actually in the article…LMFAO
