DESCRIPTION OF INCIDENT:
On August 26, 2005, the Claimant was arrested for alleged domestic violence upon her husband. She was wrongfully detained for two weeks without bond by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. While the charges were later dropped, as a result of her confinement, the Claimant was forced to postpone a necessary medical surgery and lost her Medicaid insurance coverage, which prevented her from obtaining the surgery once she was released. In addition, a subsequent restraining order against her resulted in her inability to generate income from her home-based equestrian business and the subsequent loss of her home.
