    Horrible Monsters stage elaborate crime scenes and accuse the fathers of their children of heinous crimes they didn’t commit. Horrible Monsters let the fathers of their children rot in jail for crimes they didn’t commit. Horrible Monsters alienate their children from their fathers. Horrible Monsters interfere with a loving father’s access to his children when they have personal differences. Horrible Monsters let their children grow up to believe that their fathers are abusers and rapists when they are not. Horrible Monsters need to be put in jail and prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law, in order to protect the rest of society. Horrible Monsters can be male or female. The heinous crimes they commit need to be prosecuted, regardless of the gender of the Horrible Monster.

    I wish I could say this surprises me. Sadly it doesn’t. Not in the least. Having dealt with a false charge (that I PROVED false) I am not surprised at all. Until the courts decide to PROSECUTE these psychopathic, sociopathic women this will just be repeated over & over. If a BPD or HCP person knows there will be no repercussions for actions such as this why wouldn’t they do it? I am actually stunned the judge gave custody to the father. Especially since he wasn’t married to her.

    Small victory though since they allow her unsupervised visits. If I were the judge I would fear the mother will either kidnap the child or kill the child just to see that the father can’t “win”.

    As I had shared in my own story about my PSYCHO ex GF she has never been arrested for filing a false charge that the judge & police admitted was false. Even better she latter met & married a nice guy. He left her due to her psychotic behavior & she did it AGAIN!!! Still no arrest.

    I say that maybe if these people face charges & jail time it may prevent a few. But lets be real. It would have little to no effect on most women like this. They become so set on making the other pay that NOTHING will stop them. When they are in such a rage common sense means nothing. So I guess the only solution is to jail them to at least keep them from doing it again.

      Hi Ron,

      I had the same exact thought about West potentially kidnapping or killing their son. If Gonzalez did to West what she did to him, he’d be lucky to see his son through a glass window. She’s dangerous. She no doubt believes her own lies now, which many of these freaks do. They tell the same lie over and over until they believe their fictions are real. Although, somewhere deep down, I think they know how full of sh– they are.

      Women like West and her male equivalents don’t care about the law. They’re “speh-shul” and believe their actions, even criminal actions, are justified. Nevertheless, they need to start receiving consequences—and I don’t mean a year of mandatory therapy. They need to be in jail.

        Yea, but when is someone going to lobby to get this changed. My ex years ago took emergency custody of my son from me, for sexual made up bullshit in a sexual manner. The detective that interviewed my son, and two female psychologists interviewed everyone and came to the conclusion that my ex-wife coached and repeatedly went over a scene with my son to try and incriminate me because she tried to gain custody four times previously and failed before. Will these women tell lies in court to try to get what they want. YES THEY WILL. I’m a victim of it also. All the judge did was throw it out of court. It was proven that she lied ,but these judges just look at it like its part of a domestic squabble going on. I’ve been sick of it for a long time. If real jail time was given to anyone for trying to convict an innocent person knowingly through false lies and information, The sentence should be thrown backwards at the one for knowingly accusing the innocent with false information. What makes these women think in their minds that they are better?

  3. Ron On Drums

    Oh & one other thing Dr T. You probably know this already but fully expect the more radical element of feminist to come after you with guns blazing for printing this story. Most deny that false charges of rape (same as PAS) even exist. There is a reason rape is difficult to prove. It is because of nut cases like this. It would be far to easy for even more to use the court system to “get even” with a former love interest.

    I guess what the radical feminist refuse to see is that it is BECAUSE of these cases that it becomes hard to prove. It further damages REAL victims of this horrible crime. It belittles the women who have been REAL victims of such a horrible crime. I have NO problem with public castration of real offenders. But because of women such as this real offenders go free to produce more victims.


    • Dr Tara J. Palmatier

      Anyone who would defend this woman instantly loses credibility as far as I’m concerned, Ron.

      Actually, rape isn’t difficult to prove. Rape kits collect DNA evidence. No evidence; no crime. Lots of these false allegations are made days, weeks, and months after the alleged attack. Honestly, if I were the police, I would look at delayed accusations with a very skeptical eye.

      As for the “she was too traumatized and scared to go to the police after it happened” excuse—I don’t buy it. If I were attacked, the first place I’d go is to the ER. I’d want my perp identified and punished.

      Throwing men or anyone in jail with little to no evidence, just because a woman points a finger is unconstitutional. I think every woman who makes a false allegation should do the same amount of time the wrongfully accused would have been done if convicted.

      It may not stop all women from making false allegations, but it would stop the majority if they knew they would suffer strong consequences for lying and destroying an innocent man’s life.

      • Ron On Drums

        Oh yea, that’s right. I forgot about DNA. I was a cop MANY years before DNA when I was in the U.S. Air Force. We had a false accusation once. A girl had sex with 2 guys at once & when she realized that people knew about it she cried rape. Good thing about the A.F. though was she was kicked out ( I think she got 30 days confinment as well) for both doing the deed & for filing a false report. Had it not been for the work of a good investigator those 2 guys could have gotten life in Leavenworth.

        Interesting on your comment on getting the same jail time. Unrelated to this I was talking with a friend about a case in TX where a D A got a guy convicted for a crime that the D A KNEW he didn’t commit using false evidence (he knew it was false) & witholding exculpitory evidence that would have cleared him.

        What did the D A get? A slap on the wrist from his peers. He had already left the D A’s office so they couldn’t fire him. The poor guy he sent to jail did something like 10years before he was cleared. How about the D A does the same jail time he did? I know unrelated to this but same principle.

        • Dr Tara J. Palmatier

          I agree, Ron, The former DA should do as many years in jail as the innocent man lost. He should do another 5 for abusing his position of authority. A DA is someone who, more than anyone else, ought to know the law.

          Actually, he does know the law. The more and more I read, it seems that attorneys and judges protect their own. In many cases, it’s the fox who is guarding the hen house.

          • george

            Dr. T.,
            Sadly it has been my experience in with the family law system in California, that it really depends on the judge as to whether or not “evidence” will be used to determine the outcome of your case. It’s been my experience that some judges just look at you, form an opinion, then discard or allow evidence depending upon whether or not those puzzle pieces fit the mental picture of you that they have in their mind. My BPD ex can play the helpless victom better than anybody I know. She can also paint a picture of me as the big bad wolf, just based on false accusations. Her lawyer provided no evidence, just a big list of accusations. Her lawyer also went on to say that she will really struggle, even though she is just so pretty. What does being a pretty victom have to do with guilt or innocence? Sadly, with a bad judge, it can mean everything.

      • catsmith9

        Don’t read the article comments, then – several people do defend her. They actually say he hired someone to impersonate him and he has mob connections or something.


    This doesn’t surprise me either because something similar happened to me.

    My ex had taken my son on vacation in November 2009. After her return, she contacted police stating that her neighbors had witnessed me entering her residence. Because of our relationship, the DV “smear” was in effect. The DA’s office must automatically arrest me. Thankfully, they called me and allowed me to “turn myself in.” I did so and spent 9 hours in jail for something that I did not do. After I got out, I hired attorneys and private investigators. There was no evidence whatsoever except the witness’ word who by the way could not identify me out of a set of six facial photos. They claimed I was about 5’10” – I’m actually 6’4″. They claimed I drove a red Ford Ranger – I actually drive a White Jeep Wrangler. However, because of staffing issues within the court house and DA’s office, all of the evidence clearing my name would never be seen by the DA trying the case. I could either pay for a jury trial or plea to a lesser charge. I didn’t have $10K, so I was basically forced to plea.

    All women have to do is make an accusation against a man with whom they share parenting responsibilities and that man’s life is changed forever.

    I’ve called police on three occasions; either for wellfare checks or because I thought outright that my son was in danger. Nothing came of those calls.

    I’m currently in the process of requesting more time with my 6 year old son (I have 57% parenting time now, she has 43%) and when I read this story, all I could think about was how my ex will go apesh*t when she gets these new Modification Orders in the mail. I’m afraid she is not above the type of behavior displayed by West.

    What do I get from this article? “Always have an alibi.”

    Thanks, Dr T, for bringing these issues to light…even though this article does scare the crap out of me.

    • Dr Tara J. Palmatier

      Hi CO Rider,

      I’m so sorry you’re going through that with your ex. It angers me that you had to plea to a lesser charge.

      ALWAYS HAVE AN ALIBI. It’s no joke. It could literally save your life. If I were involved in a situation like yours, I would track my own whereabouts with a GPS device. I would also use FB or Twitter apps on my phone/mobile device to track my whereabouts.

      I would consider installing cameras in my living space to date and time stamp that I was at home when no witnesses could place me there. Perhaps that sounds paranoid, but when you’re dealing with that level of Crazy and maliciousness, it just might save your life.

      If you haven’t read the Times article (it’s quite long, but worth the read) here are the closing statements, which speak to ALWAYS HAVE AN ALIBI:

      “Sometimes Gonzalez wonders how much worse things might have gone.

      What if he had grabbed breakfast in Las Vegas before boarding his flight? He wouldn’t have needed that bagel in Simi Valley, so he wouldn’t have gone to the bank for cash, and wouldn’t have been caught on security cameras.

      His alibi evaporates and he’s in prison for life.

      At the end of the day his mind automatically replays his movements, hour by hour, because it was his ability to do that that saved him. After his release he developed the habit of meticulously documenting his whereabouts, eliminating time gaps that might leave him vulnerable.

      If he’s in an airport or a 7-Eleven, he makes sure the surveillance cameras get a good look at his face. Anytime he can swipe his credit card and sign his name, even to buy a pack of gum, he does it. He fills his wallet with receipts and the world with a conspicuous trail.

      He feels most vulnerable when he is asleep, when, for six or eight hours a night, no cameras are watching, no witnesses are marking his presence, and no one but Louis Gonzalez III can say with certainty where he is.”

  5. Ron On Drums

    I would wonder if this poor guy has any recourse against her in civil court? Could he sue for slander, liable, defamation of character, lost wages, legal fees etc etc. The standard for proof in civil court is much lower. Since he has receipts that PROVE he couldn’t have been there he couldn’t loose. Then again he may be afraid of her to the point where he would fear retribution on him or his son.

    Also & I promise last point…lol What in the hell ever happened to the best interest of the child in custody proceedings? On what planet would it be in the best interest of this child to have to spend even a New York Min with this whacked out woman?

    All the courts CLAIM to decide custody based on the best interest of the child. But we see over & over again parents given visitation or custody after 7 or 8 stays in rehab, abusive women given visitation, people who alinate the child from one parent etc etc.

    They can claim it is in the best interest of the child to spend time with parents who have no concern over anybodies welfare but their own. I can claim to be the pope but that doesn’t make me him.

    • Dr Tara J. Palmatier

      I believe Gonzalez sued her in civil court to recoup the $55,000+ he spent in legal fees among other things.

      West promptly filed bankruptcy. YOU’LL NEVER HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE! BWAHAHAHAHA!

      Question: If a man declares bankruptcy, is back owed child support forgiven or does he go to what has become debtor’s prison? And didn’t the US supposedly do away with debtor’s prison a long time ago? Just wondering.

      • So Cal Dad

        Current and back child support is not eligible for discharge in bankruptcy. In California, a Court’s order for child support is enforceable by contempt penalties, which can include incarceration.

        • Dr Tara J. Palmatier

          Yet Tracy West can escape her responsibility to Mr Gonzalez.

          Can you say, “double standards,” boys and girls?

          I knew you could.

          • Dr. T,

            I’m afraid I have to disagree. A court ordered monetary punishment can’t be eliminated in a Chapter 7 (debt elimination) bankruptcy. It can be re-paid in a chapter 13 (repayment) bankruptcy.

            For disclosure, I worked for a bankruptcy law firm for several years. So she can’t get out of the debt, so long as it is a court imposed sanction.

    • So Cal Dad

      The article indicated that Gonzalez filed a suit against West for malicious prosecution (after he was exonerated of all charges), and which was resulted in a confidential settlement paid by West’s insurance company. A suit against the police or prosecutors would be much more difficult and defensible by various judicial immunities. Gonzalez was awarded legal fees of $55,000 for successfully defending against West’s meritless restraining order, however, West filed for bankruptcy protection to avoid the debt.

    wow, reminds me of my crazy, violent (sometime affectionate..hmm hardly) abusive, demanding,judgmental, NPD, Borderline Ex GF. My god that nearly killed me, but also nearly drove me insane.

  7. TheGirlInside

    My god! She looks like she’s actually giggling in the hospital photo!!!

    • chris117

      I agree that picture makes me sick. I can see the smile through that grimace. She’s probably thinking “oh yes they are falling for it, I did it.” Sick twisted bitch.

  8. DimensionX

    I wish everyone would stop saying this woman is mentally ill. She is NOT mentally ill – she is EVIL. Mentally ill people are ill. Evil people are evil. To allow evil people to hide behind the label of “mental illness” just perpetuates all the negative connotations associated with being mentally ill. It also tends to excuse the behavior of evil people by attempting to diminish their responsibility for their actions.

  9. aninnocentdad

    I am currently living through this nightmare. It is uncanny how similar our stories are. My then wife now ex wife accused me or sexually assaulting her. My life has been turned upside down since. I am automatically guilty until proven innocent. She is portraying the victim whereas the real victims are my 6 year old child and I. My battle is going to be difficult. She is a former prosecutor and also friends with the DA out here. The only reason I can fathom as to why she did this was because she wanted to take our child back to the state we had moved here from. We had uprooted him once during the school year to move here and he had become a legal resident of the current state in which I reside. I would not let her take him (although we agreed on me bringing him back to her for Christmas and summer break). This wasn’t good enough for her and she accused me of raping her. I have spent 2 months in a detention center and was just indicted last week. I am currently on a GPS monitoring system (house arrest) and am having difficulty finding work. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. When I say my life is a living hell…..that is a SEVERE UNDERSTATEMENT! I pray to God everyday that justice is served, I’m proven innocent, and I can finally see my little guy again.
