Within two weeks Alisha Waters had received 186 texts from her estranged husband D.J. Mathis. He used psychological abuse, and threats of harm in his texts and calls. On April 22, 2013 Alisha Waters was denied a Domestic Violence Order six days after receiving an Emergency Protective Order. Kenton Family Court Judge Lisa Bushelman’s court order read “no allegation of domestic violence.” On Aug. 6, 2013 DJ Mathis followed Waters to her work and changed Alisha's life forever.
Alisha and her family are currently trying to get a bill passed that includes stalking (by physical or digital means) in Kentucky's definition of domestic violence.
