Domestic abuse case falls apart as accuser shows up late

Nakisha Usher

Special Constable, Nakisha Usher, was violently beaten in December 2010 and her ex-common-law husband, Police Constable Briceño Shal was charged with Wounding soon after the incident. That case was called at nine o’clock this morning, but when Usher arrived a few minutes later, Magistrate Roberto Ordonez had already dismissed the charge and Shal was freed. Usher expressed her frustration to our court reporter, saying that she got no justice. But court records show that she also missed the initial court date on April fourteenth.

Briceño Shal

The domestic dispute occurred on December third when Shal and Usher lived together at the corner of Dean West Streets. During an argument at around seven-thirty that night, Usher claims that Shal punched her in the stomach and on the face, causing her left to swell shut and her nose started bleeding profusely. According to Usher, she lost consciousness and woke up in a hospital, where her injuries were classified as wounding. Shal has been on interdiction and it is not known if he will return to duty since the case ended in a dismissal and not an acquittal. Meanwhile, Usher has the option of pursuing a civil suit in the matter.

    Looks like being on time twice didn’t work, three strikes and OH did not get a third chance!!

  3. CEO says:

    I agree with all that OMG stuff written above but the least she could have done was to show up on time to court.

    She missed the first hearing and late for the second on! She cannot blame anyone for not receiving the justice she deserved.

  4. Joe says:

    I agree with CEO. And then some more – what if it was she who attacked – and got the worst of it. Are only men to suffer or be blamed. Damn, I have seen many women leterally beat up their husband!!!! – yes !! I know of this guy that he runs away from his house when the woman is mad. And the worst is that this guy is a hard working person.

    This is exactly why they need to change the law to take the case out of the hands of the victims because sometimes they are afraid to go testify or are threatened. I hate how Women and children are treated in this country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She should have kept a copy of this picture in her purse or pocket to remind herself on a daily basis why she needed to get her behind up & get to court on time. The courts can only do so much & women have to learn that even if the bed is still shaking after he leaves, a good bassarse is reason enough to set him free & close the shop… at least to that abuser.

    this is another horrible case when ever he try that again make sure his lad left on the floor jumping big @$$ hole…..

    As an ex-policeman I have had my own share of experience in domestic matters. When I was a policeman, my now ex-wife used to start a fight with me every time there is a little misunderstanding. She could not sit down and talk for a peaceful solution. Fortunately for me, she was small and not strong enough nor good enough to put up a good fight. I was always able to subdue her easily. Because she could not do what she want with me, she reported me at the police station a few times but her reports failed because there was no sign of brutality on her. I know that my other fellow brothers are having a more difficult time because their partners are bigger, stronger, and capable fighters negatively influenced by the women’s group. Such a situation is very likely to lead to blows.
    If the matter is taken to the women’s family court, the women are always right and the men are always found guilty before they arrive at the court room, even if there is no evidence to support the court’s position. As the woman in-charge of the family court once told me personally: “All men are the same.” She is so wrong but she is not answerable to anybody.
    If your partner likes to fight for every little thing or nothing at all, walk away if you could to avoid violence. If you are cornered and cannot get away, you sure have the right to defend yourself. Try to get another partner. Not all women are the same. My second (present) wife is very nice, and loving woman.
