Abused Boyfriend Speaks Up for Girlfriend in Domestic Abuse Case

Posted: Updated:

A Great Falls woman made her initial appearance for the charge of partner or family assault, but it took an interesting turn when her abused boyfriend testified in her defense.

A teary eyed and pregnant Danielle Monroe appeared to regret the violent fight that took place between her and her boyfriend, Casey Jarvis. Police were called to the scene Wednesday night and after speaking with the couple, they felt that Monroe was acting strangely.

She accused Jarvis of cheating on her and got so upset that she became violent causing her to charge and punch him. After threatening Jarvis with a knife and throwing a glass mug at him, police arrived to the scene. They believed Monroe was under the influence of meth, but she denied the accusation. After agreeing to go to the hospital, she tested positive for amphetamine and was taken to jail after release. 

Wednesday in court, Jarvis asked that no charges be brought against Monroe because he had failed to protect her.

"I love this woman. I don't want to be separated from her. I've got a family with her. I just got out of prison and I was out partying. I understand that. I love her and I want to take care of her. I need to take care of her," said Jarvis.

Although Jarvis made an emotional plea on Monroe's behalf, the judge was still concerned because Jarvis seemed to be under the influence of drugs while in court.

Bail reduction was refused after reviewing Monroe's criminal history and de terming her drug use was a threat to herself and the community. In light of this, her bail has been set at $20,000.
