Setting an example?

If this were an issue of "setting an example", then it should have been handled within the employment setting. The issue of "setting an example" has to do with the accusation of an affair. And if this affair occured, then SHE is as guilty as he is and therefore should face the exact same threat of employment termination. The restraining order stems from an accusation of threats against her. But if there was evidence of threats against her, then he could have been criminally charged with harrassment at the least, if not terrorism. But because there was insufficient evidence, no criminal charges can be filed. Therefore, they chose to obtain a restraining order, which clearly only required an accusation (since there wasn't evidence for a criminal charge) to impliment. What kind of an example does that set for students where the legal system dumps the idea of "innocent until proven guilty" and goes with "accusation makes guilt"? Andrew
