This is one of those laws that nullification or amendment is made for. Astoundingly ridiculous. Found at losangeles.cbslocal.com:
A mother who was forced to pay spousal support to the ex-husband who was convicted of raping her daughter is speaking out to CBS2.
“Every time I wrote that check, I cried because I felt like I was paying the man that raped my daughter,” Carol Abar told CBS2′s Andrea Fujii.
Carol married Ed Abar in 1991, when her daughter, who wishes to remain unidentified, was 9 years old.
When Carol found out about the abuse, she divorced Ed, but the legal system wasn't done with her yet.
Since Carol made more money than Abar, she was forced to pay alimony—$1,300 a month.
“The judge told me I had no proof. It was my word against him,” said Carol.
In all, Carol paid $22,000 to Abar until last year, when Abar struck a plea deal and pleaded guilty to one of the five rape charges. He was sentenced to more than a year in jail.
A judge then temporarily stopped the spousal support.
Now out of jail, Abar has filed to reinstate the support, according to Brian Uhl, Carol’s attorney.
“He’s asking not just to resume the existing support of $1,300 a month, but he’s asking for what amounts to approximately $33,000 in past due support and that too is a miscarriage of justice,” said Uhl.
