hidden effects of restraining orders

In addition to the well known effect of a restraining order on the respondent--namely that you can't have any contact with the petitioner--there are a number of less well known side effects that can make have a restraining order in effect more difficult.  These include:


Having to immediately vacate one's home


If someone is evicted from their home due to non-payment of rent or foreclosure on a mortgage, generally they will have some advance notice before they actually have to move out.  Even with very serious criminal charges, a defendant is generally allowed to return home immediately after posting bail / bond, and will generally get plenty of advance notice of any subsequent court hearing that might result in their being sent back to jail.  Not so if someone gets a restraining order placed on them by someone else living at the same address.  If they are at home when they are served with the restraining order, they likely have to leave immediately.  If they are somewhere else, they likely are unable to return home even briefly.  They may be left with little more than the clothes on their back.


This is true regardless of whether they have other family members--not party to the order--left at home or need access to their belongings to carry out their studies or work obligations.  Since a restraining order does generally allow contact through an attorney, some of these problems perhaps can eventually be worked out with the help of an attorney.  But hiring an attorney is always a slow and expensive way to solve any problem--and in the meantime the person's life is very seriously disrupted.


If the respondent does not live at the same address at the petitioner--and lives more than a short radius away--this issue will not likely arise.


The embarrassment of being "served"


Someone subject to a restraining order will generally need to be "served" with papers related to the restraining order.  This can often happen twice in any restraining order case--once when the initial temporary restraining order is issued, and then a second time when the permanent (long term) restraining order is issued after a further court hearing.  Service can be done by private process server or any responsible adult, but it is most often done by law enforcement in restraining order cases for a couple of reasons.  One is that having law enforcement serve the papers projects a greater air of authority in such cases, and the second is that law enforcement will often serve restraining order papers free of charge to the petitioner (so the petitioner has a financial incentive to utilize this service).


Having law enforcement (eg sheriff's deputies or police) turn up at one's place of work--or one's home--to serve such papers is simply embarrassing.  This is true even though the actual interaction with law enforcement may be quite brief--they may simply verify the respondent's identity, give the respondent the papers, and leave.  But it is still a stressful and embarrassing situation for the respondent.  If it happens at work, for example, it may cause one's employer to question why the person is being served and why law enforcement is there disrupting the activities of the workplace.  This can definitely have a negative impact on one's job and--at least in the worst case scenario--could lead to dismissal.  This risk of job repercussions increases if law enforcement ends up making multiple visits to the workplace to serve additional documents.


Firearms restrictions


I've never been the gun-owning type personally--I've never had any personal interest in firearms before or after being hit with a restraining order.  As such, I probably don't know all the ins and outs of how restraining order-based firearms restrictions work.  However I do support the 2nd amendment rights of those who do choose to own firearms.  And restraining orders can definitely limit those rights.


The firearms restrictions associated with a restraining order can be at either the state or the federal level--or both.  State level restrictions are--at least--usually fairly straightforward because the restraining order signed by the judge will usually specify whether the person is--or is not--still allowed to own guns per state law.  If there are state law restrictions it is usually spelled out pretty clearly in black and white.  Not so for federal restrictions arising from the restraining order.  The federal rules restrict gun ownership based in part on the past relationship between the parties.  Whether the federal restrictions apply is often not directly specified in the order.


In other words, the clerk entering the restraining order into the federal database needs to infer--based on the facts stated in the order--whether the federal restrictions should or should not apply.  If the clerk determines that the federal restrictions do apply, then the clerk uses something called the Brady indicator to specify in the federal database that the person is prevented under federal law from owning firearms.  I have no confidence that the clerk always gets it right.  I'm sure there are "false positives"--cases where under the law the person should be allowed to own firearms but the clerk nevertheless checks the box barring ownership.  (To be fair, the reverse situation probably occurs too--people who should be restricted from owning guns and are, indeed, dangerous but who slip through the cracks of this system.)


Moreover, it seems to be very difficult for a respondent to determine whether they are subject to the federal firearms restrictions.  The federal rules are fairly simple, so determining whether they should apply or not is fairly straightforward.  But verifying whether the rules have been properly applied in any given case seems much more difficult, as it is not specified in the restraining order itself, but rather simply in a federal database that ordinary people usually do not have access to.


Ironically the federal restrictions are triggered by something called the Brady indicator named after former Reagan presidential press secretary James Brady who was shot in the 1981 attempt on Reagan's life (and who died many years later of causes ruled to be related to the original shooting).  The irony is that the Brady indicator would actually not have protected James Brady.  The Brady indicator only applies in certain cases.  The assault on Reagan and Brady was perpetrated by John Hinckley in his deluded stalking of actress Jodie Foster.  The Brady indicator would, for example, cover cases of stalking a former intimate partner but it doesn't cover situations where someone--such as Hinckley--is involved in stalking a total stranger such as Foster.


A restraining order is listed in the National Criminal Information Center (NCIC) database


Although a restraining order is nominally "just" a civil matter--not a criminal matter at least not unless and until it is violated--it is nevertheless listed in the federal National Criminal Information Center (NCIC) database--as well as, probably, in similar state level databases in the state of issue.  This is immediately a red flag to law enforcement regarding the respondent in any interactions with law enforcement.  This, for example, can include a simple traffic stop for a minor traffic violation.  Law enforcement is not supposed to carry out an arrest based solely on the existence of the NCIC record.  But one can easily see if one has been marked with a "red flag" for law enforcement that any subsequent interaction with the police is quite possibly going to be a lot more stressful than it would otherwise be.


A restraining order is a matter of public record


Restraining orders are court documents are therefore available to the public.  Exactly how easily accessible they are may depend on the state.  In some states and/or counties it might require knowing the name of the parties, and having some advance knowledge of the existence of the restraining order--and then you would need to visit the specific courthouse in person to verify for certain the existence of the restraining order.  In such states and/or counties, someone doing a casual Google search is unlikely to find out any information about the restraining order.  However, in the state where Angela has a restraining order in force against me--Wisconsin--restraining orders are much easier to find.


There are a couple of different websites in Wisconsin which list all restraining orders--as well as many other public court cases.  Doing a Google search on either my full name or Angela's full name will likely direct you to information about the restraining order.  It is an easily accessible piece of public information.


Delays at customs


In part because of the NCIC record mentioned above, having an active restraining order in effect can cause long delays in re-entering the US after a trip abroad.  When re-entering the US, the customs (CBP) officer will generally see the active restraining order and refer the person to what is called "secondary inspection"--a back room will the person will face additional and more extended questioning.  I've been referred to secondary inspection quite a number of times when re-entering the US due to the active restraining order against me.  The delays have typically ranged from 5-30 minutes, but I've heard of much longer delays sometimes occurring.  I've been told that the reason for the delays is that the customs officials need to verify that I am not travelling with Angela--the woman who has a restraining order against me--because of course that would be a violation of the order to be travelling with her and therefore in contact with her.


However they also often take the opportunity to question me about my relationship or past relationship with Angela, which can lead to embarrassing personal questions.  Although the delays have never extended into hours, and I'm always respectful and courteous in answering the questions, these delays are nevertheless embarrassing and disconcerting.  It also means that I sometimes re-arrange travel plans around the possible delay--I don't want to be crossing the border with others because of the embarrassing questions so I will arrange a pretext why I need to cross alone.  For example, if I'm returning from a business trip abroad, I might arrange to take a few days vacation abroad after the business trip to avoid travelling back on the same plane with my colleagues.  Or, if my colleagues themselves decide to stay on a couple of extra days in the other country, I'll come up with a reason why I need to return home immediately.  Again--it is all with the goal of not flying back on the same plane as others to avoid them being present for this disconcerting process.

Angela's tits and her restraining order against me

There are a lot of websites out there that discuss restraining orders--with a general sense that restraining orders are very easy to get from the point of view of the petitioner--but there is not a lot of discussion about what actually happens at a restraining order hearing.  I thought I would share a little bit about what happened at my own restraining order hearing.  Bear in mind that I am not a lawyer--I was proceeding pro se at my hearing--but I would imagine that there are others without the financial resources to retain an attorney who could benefit from learning what happens at a hearing.







The woman with a restraining order against me, and all the power that that gives her with respect to me, is named Angela.  A restraining order typically starts with the petitioner--Angela--going to court on her own and suing for a restraining order.  During the first hearing, the respondent (me) isn't present and typically doesn't even know about the petition yet.  The judge may (and usually does) grant the restraining order for a short time on Angela's evidence only.  However, the restraining order wasn't considered in effect until I was served.  During this brief time interval, Angela emailed me to say that I imagined myself to be in a relationship with her and she needed to defend herself.  This was a reference to the restraining order although I didn't know it yet.  The next day I was served with a copy of the order by law enforcement while at work.  In her petition against me, among other things, Angela alleged harassment on the grounds that I had made inappropriate comments about her breasts and had propositioned her sexually.

In other words this was a "no means no" type of restraining order.  Angela was saying that "no means no"--reasonable--but also saying she somehow needed the courts to enforce this--not so reasonable in my view.  In particular it wasn't even claimed that I'd in any way refused to accept her "no" to any sexual advance I might have made.

At the restraining order hearing, I first attempted to get the matter dismissed on jurisdictional grounds.  Angela and I once lived in the same state, but have since moved away to different states, so there are three different states involved:  my current state, her current state, and the past state where we both lived.  Angela filed the restraining order in her current state of residence.  I attempted to argue that Angela's allegations--whether true or false--had little to do with her current state, and the matter would more appropriately be heard either in my current state of residence or the past state where we both lived.  However, I was unsuccessful in this motion for dismissal on purely jurisdictional grounds.

The judge then swore both of us--Angela as petitioner and myself as defendant--in as witnesses.  And there is where I fear that I may have made my first mistake being unfamiliar with the law--although I cannot be sure for exactly the same reason (I am unfamiliar with the law).  In agreeing without questioning it to be sworn in as a witness, I was perhaps foolishly forgoing my Fifth Amendment rights against self incrimination.  Angela clearly hoped to pursue not just a restraining order against me but also she wanted to pursue criminal charges.  I do not believe I ever did anything that rose to the level of a criminal offense.  And Angela never made any headway whatsoever--either before or after the hearing--in pursuing criminal charges against me.  Yet the threat made me nervous especially given that I had no legal representation.  I do not believe I committed a crime but without legal counsel to advise me on how to approach testifying I was quite nervous about suddenly being thrust by the judge into a position of testifying.

The judge then questioned Angela about why she was seeking a restraining order against me.  She reiterated essentially the same claims she had made in her written petition.  The judge allowed her to gloss over the part of her petition where she alleged that I had commented inappropriately on the subject of her breasts.  Notably, however, he did ask her to testify as to her current place of residence--bear in mind that I had previously challenged the petition on jurisdictional grounds.

Next the judge questioned me as to Angela's allegations.  This is where I may have made my second mistake.  Because I didn't know what might or might not have placed me at risk of criminal prosecution, I answered the questions truthfully--but in as noncommittal a way as possible.  As such I probably didn't make a very good impression as a witness--I probably seemed rather evasive.  I would have benefited from either taking the Fifth or discussing with an attorney how best to present my side of the story without exposing myself to greater legal risk.

The final stage of the hearing was when the judge allowed me to directly question (cross examine) Angela as to her allegations.  I had not been expecting this--indeed I had expected the hearing to already be dismissed by this point on jurisdictional grounds--and was not prepared for how best to question her.  Moreover, I was embarrassed both for myself and for Angela about the intimate nature of her allegations, involving discussions of her breasts and my comments on them.  I was not prepared emotionally to have a discussion on such matters in an open courtroom.  As such, I asked Angela only one rather weak question and let it go at that.

I should say that there is some truth to some of the allegations that Angela made in her petition.  However, she often didn't tell the full story, suggesting that any advances I might have made were completely unwelcome, whereas in fact she was often at least somewhat receptive.  Had I been prepared to properly cross examine her, I would have asked her--for example--why when she claimed that my phone calls to her were unwelcome in her petition, she always called me back and adopted a friendly tone of voice.  I do not know what the outcome would have been had I done so.  However because of my embarrassment about the intimate nature of some of her allegations, I never properly cross examined her.  As such, Angela's claims were accepted at face value and the restraining order was put into effect.

As I noted earlier, my main purpose in writing this is to explain what happens at a restraining order hearing--at least at mine--to offer some clues as to how a future defendant might be better prepared than I was.  I am not a lawyer and, of course, the best bet is to hire a lawyer--but if legal representation is not an option understanding as much about the process in advance seems to me to be the next best bet.

Wrestler Arrested In Hillsborough County Florida For Domestic Violence

I just saw this on the news, and it is important to reserve judgement until this Hillsborough County Man has had his day in court. It really is a sad situation when 2 people are trying to talk out their problems w/o getting the Police involved that a person can be arrested and charged with a Felony for "Tampering with a witness". In fact, the penalty for "Tampering with a witness" is much more severe then the penalty for actually hitting a person in a Domestic Violence incident. I guess the Police here in Hillsborough County Florida value a witness who can testify and make a case against someone more then a victim who has been beaten. Imagine a Man and his wife have an argument, they both scream at each other, and the wife goes to call the Police. The Man, not wishing to have his neighbors see the Police come to their home, simply grabs the phone from his wife. That simple act of not allowing his irrational wife to call the police will get you charged with a Felony here in Hillsborough County Florida. And, get this, it matters not if the domestic violence charges are proven to be untrue and dismissed in Court or not. Here is the story below of The Wrestler Known As Adam Rose, Who Was Arrested Here In Hillsborough County Florida For Domestic Violence. Hillsborough County deputies arrested WWE star Raymond Leppan Wednesday. Leppan, 36, is charged with domestic battery and preventing the victim from contacting law enforcement. Leppan is known as Adam Rose. Deputies said he engaged in a verbal argument with the victim about marital problems at a residence in the 18000 block of Sparrows Nest Drive. Leppan “grabbed the victim on each side of her face with his hands and pulled her face close to his while he screamed at her,” deputies said. When the victim called 911, Leppan allegedly took the phone away so she couldn’t report the incident. “The defendant admitted to taking the phone away from the victim so she could not report the incident,” deputies said. The WWE released the following statement: “Raymond Leppan (a.k.a. WWE Superstar Adam Rose) was arrested at his home this morning by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Tampa, Fla. According to a police report, Leppan was taken into custody and booked on alleged charges of tampering with a witness, a felony, and battery domestic violence, a misdemeanor. He is currently being held without bond. WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Raymond Leppan has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.”

Man Seeks Restraining Order Against God

An Israeli man has launched a campaign to stop God interfering in his life after three years of poor treatment at the hands of the Almighty. The unidentified man submitted a restraining order request against His Holiness at an Israeli court on Tuesday. He said that God had been bothering him for three years and that repeated requests to the police had been ignored, with the authorities only sending patrol cars to his home on 10 occasions and not taking his calls seriously. Authorities eventually told the man to take out a restraining order in court against the Lord, he said, so he duly obliged at the Magistrate Court in the northern Israeli port city of Haifa. “For the past three years He started to treat me harshly and not nicely. I complained to the police many times. The Israel police asked me to take out a restraining order,” the man said in the proceedings at the court, according to Israeli news site NRG. God appeared to take note of the man’s complaints as the document of the court proceedings, published after the restraining order request, noted that He did not present himself at the hearing. One has to wonder if a warrant for God's arrest was issued by the judge for failure to appear ? The ruling judge, Ahsan Canaan, threw the request out of court, saying that the attempt was absurd and that he should seek help elsewhere and not from the local authorities, The Times of Israel reported. God was not immediately available for comment.

false stalking injunctions in Pinellas County, FL

Here is a letter from a reader of this Blog to me all about her experiences with false stalking injunctions in Pinellas County Florida that were filed against her. Hi Chris, This is (Name Hidden)- We spoke around the 3rd of March. At this time, plz do not use my name but use Lady Warrior instead for now. I have successfully won all of my false stalking injunctions in Pinellas County, FL in the last three years... It has been a horrible experience! And financially draining as well! Especially, if you know how unfair and unbalanced this statute is! Free to file and the clerks even help them fill out the paperwork! Not to mention that you cannot expunge it--- Even if you get it dismissed, people can still view it and not see the dismissal etc. but your NAME ATTACHED TO THE WORD STALKING!
This literally insane criminal female misfit and her brother (etc), attempted to file six false stalking injunctions in Pinellas County Florida on me, but only three went before the court! One even became CASE LAW IN FLORIDA! The basis of this is retaliation, maliciousness etc.is because I am working w/ local L E, and the State as a whistle blower/informant regarding their economic criminal activity. Especially, after, I became one of their victims! . More on that later. Talk about watching perjury in action! Which, rately gets filed in the Tampa Bay area--- More on that soon- Here are some tips- *Document everything- keep a journal. *Educate yourself. *Contact (as high up as you can) in L E and the Courts etc. and let them know your concerns. Keep it up until they listen to you. Have a witness if you speak to them. I have had them twist things around... Lying!!! *E-mail and or write the Chief Circuit Court Judge! Use his own language- "To keep a fair and balanced Court"etc... *Contact the State Legislature! This statute needs to be modified to say the least! *Contact the media and or an investigative reporter! Be careful here as they can spin your story! *HIRE A COMPETENT CARING,COMPASSIONATE ATTORNEY THAT GETS IT AND WILL FIGHT FOR YOU! Remember, you know your story best... Pro se can be very difficult and can go sideways on you too--- Stay strong and positive- you are doing the right thing! Take care of yourself and speak to those only that support you... Do not be disrespectful or a hot head- it will get you no where when fighting a false stalking injunction in Pinellas County Florida! Pray- it does work! Warrior Lady

Temporary Order of Protection Questions

Hi. On Thursday, Feb. 18 at 1030pm my wife returned from her daughter and son in law's home. She was in a good mood earlier in the day, but came home in a depressed mood. She then complained that she wished she had more money to help the kids, even though we , including her and I , have helped them repeatedly. This escalated into an argument. During the argument, as I got up to leave the room and the discussion, she grabbed my arm and as I pulled away severely scratched my arm . She them hit me in the mouth causing the upper pallet to be torn and bleed. I told her I could call the police and register an assault charge. She saw the bleeding. Then she really fumed. She left the house and went for a walk. A few minutes later at 1130 pm two cops were at my door. One stayed outside with her and the other inside with me. She told her story separate from mine. Both cops, however saw the lip and pallet wound. Before they left , they suggested we separate for the evening. My wife went to her other daughter's house. This was at 1215 pm. At 330 am, my doorbell was ringing. I carefully looked out the window and saw two patrol cars. I didn't open the door. They left. At 800 am, my door bell was ringing. Now there were three patrol cars and they were walking around the property. Again, I didn't open the door. At 900 am, the alarm was deactivated, the door unlocked and my wife comes in with the 6 officers. They serve me with a Temporary Order of Protection. It had been granted at 1230 pm at the police station near my house. The hearing is in two weeks. Two of the officers followed me around the house while I packed some items for the next two weeks. I asked them why I was being put out of my house. They said that she got the Temporary Order of Protection first and I had not applied for one despite the fact that I was the injured and battered parti. They asked if I wanted to make a written statement to add to the report of the previous night. I did. They asked if I wanted to press charges and I said yes. At noon, I went to the emergency room, they took pictures, examined me, wrote a report and gave the report to me with the pictures. My question is....with the facts at hand, at the Hearing, once the judge sees the assault and battery, is it in my favor that the temporary order for protection in her favor be either dismissed or overturned and a new order be issued by the judge against her. This would include having her move out of the house. ANONOMOUS

Open Letter to Child Protective Services social workers

An Open Letter to Child Protective Services social workers Dear CPS social worker, I dont know you and you dont know me. Im sure you are expecting a bitter letter from a parent that had her children taken, but this letter is not meant to down you or be bitter toward you. It is a letter to hopefully, shed light and help you understand more about your role in this world. You made the choice to study social work in college, maybe from the start, you knew working for child protective services was your goal or perhaps it is one of the first jobs you were hired on to, but either way, your career was aimed towards helping others. That tells me that at one point theres a chance you were a compassionate human being that only wanted to help and change lives. You never imagined your job would be this. Destroying families in the name of help, being forced to follow the rules even when you dont morally agree, and working for a system that is so poorly funded. You are over worked and over booked, the dream you had for your career is but a distant memory. I know you use to feel so deeply and your emotions effected your work, but eventually you became desensitized. You no longer feel like you should and you condone this by saying you cant get that involved with your cases. Im sure you have witnessed some terrible things. Abuse, neglect, addiction, and mental health issues. You have seen the suffering of children and it is your job to save them. You take this job seriously and want what is best for the children. Its a shame that your heavy case loads and courts often keep you from doing what you know is right.Maybe you are one of the good ones, but are caught in a system that doesnt let you be good or maybe you arent one of the good ones, you feel nothing and are okay with ripping a family apart even if its not the right thing to do. You condone this by telling yourself that you are in a position to do what you have to do to protect these kids even if there is no viable evidence. You see yourself almost as a God playing Gods role. It doesnt concern you if it is right or wrong, because in your mind, you think it's better safe then sorry. You manipulate, you lie, you stare the grief of children and parents in the face without a flinch. Your income is good and your life isnt so bad, you probably have a beautiful family that you go home to every night to sleep peacefully with knowing that you are above the system. The federal government pays a hefty incentive to every child that is in your system and forced into adoption. It pays well so even if you know that the children in the system are in for a hard life, you dont care, you terminate the rights of parents that love their children more than life. Perhaps these parents needed some advice, resources, a hand up or even a hand out, but they surely didnt deserve to lose their children. You hear their cries of grief and witness their rage, they beg and they plead. They fight ruthlessly and finish your case plans for you to find more problems that dont really exist. You condemn parents for the things they do then go home to do the same. You are a hypocrite, a sociopath, and a problem in this world. Im not bitter, I am honest. I hope you can take what I say and use it to think about the things that you continue to do. Its not all your fault, the system is broken, but the good people figure that out and quit. That is why the turn over rate for your job is so high, because it takes a special kind of person to destroy lives. I am the mother of a little girl. I raised this litte girl for 4 years before she was ripped from my custody based on lies and manipulation. It has been a year, a year of hell and unimaginable grief. Their claims against me were mental health issues and their idea of helping was to rip my family apart. Ive never hurt my child or neglected her. Im no where near a perfect parent, but I am far from an unfit one. Ive struggled with depression and it has been a really hard battle, but despite it all,I still did what I needed to do for my child and I did it with love. I got my butt out of bed every morning to care for my child and although I fell short in some areas, the answer was never this. Ive been alienated and bullied while being forced to watch my daughter suffer over being taken from all shes ever known. Ive watched my bright, beautiful baby girl lose the sparkle in her eye and regress while she begs me to come home.Ive been the focus of her anger and confusion, I am blamed by her, not you. She doesnt understand. Id be lying if I said I didnt lose my mind the day they took her, but of coarse it was twisted on me and used against me. I would like to see the government kidnap your children and you keep your sanity. There are ways to help and there are ways to hurt people. I cannot believe that you work for a system and dont know the reality of the system you work for or the reality of foster care...or the reality of the chances of these children leading a successful life after losing their families. You know that children are usually safer with their family than in a foster care setting, but you also know there is no money to be made in that. If you only took the children that genuinely needed to be removed and kept the rest of the families together, just getting them the real help they need, you know there would be no money in that, but it would cost money to fund services to really help them. As of right now, you are banking more money than you are losing, so why change a thing? Why? I will tell you why, because family is all we really have in this world. Every family has their issues, I mean, look at our childhoods.None of had a perfect one, but most of us turned out okay regardless and couldnt imagine our life without our crazy relatives. Our children are our next generation in this country, if we continue to hurt them like this, we will continue to see our future generations decline. The money that could have been spent on preserving these families will now be spent on a life time of mental health treatment, welfare benefits, disability, and law enforcement, because those that come out of this system are more times than not destined to this lifestyle. You know this. I know that it runs so much deeper than just that. The time for change is now. Kept together and helped most of us would grow to be half way functional, decent human beings and then the cycle wouldnt be able to continue. The goverment needs this cycle to keep their control over us and keep up their finances. If you want to help then do us all a favor and stop turning a blind eye to the reality of the system. Do you want to save the children? Quit your job now and stand with us against what is happening to us and our children. If you dont quit your job, then do your job with morals and values. Every family that you meet, think about your own. Realize that you dont know everything and arent an expert at parenting. We are all different and what you think is right isnt always right. Help us, be a friend to us, educate us, support us, lift us up and keep our families together. Comfort the grieving and dont allow the corruption to dictate whether or not you do what is right even if this means standing alone without a job. Our children are too valuable for anything aside from this. There is no amount of money in this world good enough to do what you do. Please,take this to heart, because the change starts with you. God Bless America. Sincerely, A broken mother, Crystal Truitt

Warren Sapp accused in domestic violence case

Poor Warren Sapp, it looks like his trouble with women and domestic violence  just will not go away. He lost his job on NFL Network for soliciting a prostitute in Las Vegas. We think that sucks, because we feel prostitution should be legalized, taxed, and regulated. While we don't feel it is right for any man to put his hands on a woman, we can understand Warren Sapp's anger. After all, he paid the 2 prostitutes 300 dollars EACH for Sex. Then, they failed to deliver what they had already been paid very well for, and demanded even more money.
His mistake was losing his temper.


TBO.com staff 
Published: 
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend Warren Sapp is facing more legal problems,
according to TMZ.
According to the website, a domestic violence report has been filed against the
Pro Football Hall of Famer, after a woman accused him of getting into a
physical altercation with her at a Las Vegas casino on April 28.
The website said police have not arrested or charged Sapp, but an investigation
is underway.
Sapp made headlines in February when he was accused of hiring prostitutes
 in Phoenix while he was there for the Super Bowl. He accepted a plea agreement in May
 in which he pled guilty to a charge of solicitation
 and agreed to take two counseling programs.
