Ellenora Victoria Harmon (now Ellenora Fulk) reports her husband’s Bigamous marriage to Teri Ann Frye: STATE OF WASHINGTON, Plaintiff, vs. ALAN LEIGHTON O’NEILL, Defendant.

Story, found here, is missing information. For the sake of the accused, I’ve added the legal accusation filed at court. Clearly, a battered man tried to move on with his life, and got caught up with the law while attempting to change his identity and avoid his physically abusive wife.

Note the sequence of events. He moved out in 2009. His wife found out about his relationship with another woman in 2010, and was arrested for domestic violence.

If he moved out in 2009, why was she only charged with domestic violence? Why is the law continuing to protect a woman who beats her husband? Why can she continue to hide behind her legally enforced marriage to a man that’s clearly afraid of her?

I’ll be posting more of these in the future. Call it “equal time” for men. No more anonymity for false victims.

I, MARK LINDQUIST, Prosecuting Attorney for Pierce County, in the name and by the authority

of the State of Washington, do accuse ALAN LEIGHTON O’NEILL of the crime of BIGAMY,

committed as follows:

That ALAN LEIGHTON O’NEILL, in the State of Washington, on or about the 19th day of

December, 2011, did unlawfully, feloniously, and intentionally marry or purport to marry Teri Ann Frye,

when either person had a living spouse, to-wit: Ellenora V. Fulk, contrary to RCW 9A.64.010(l), and

against the peace and dignity of the State of Washington.

DATED this 8th day of March, 2012.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney

WSB#: 25570

GRANT E. BLINN, declares under penalty of perjury:

That I am a deputy prosecuting attorney for Pierce County and I am familiar with the police

report and/or investigation conducted by the PIERCE COUNTY SHERIFF, incident number 120390482;

That the police report and/or investigation provided me the following information;

That in Pierce County, Washington, on or about the 8th day of February, 2012, the defendant,

ALAN LEIGHTON O’NEILL, did commit the crime of Bigamy.

According to certified documents at the office of the Pierce County Auditor, the defendant

married Ellenora Victoria Harmon (now Ellenora Fulk) on 04/16/2001. According to records from Pierce

County District Court, Alan Leighton Fulk petitioned to change his last name to O’Neill. That petition

was granted in Pierce County District Court. Although the date on the order is 12/14/10, the date it was

filed was 12/14/11. The petition itself was dated 12/7/11 and was e-filed on 12/14/11. According to

records from the Auditor’s Office, the defendant then married Teri Ann Frye on 12/19/11 under his new

last name.

Per the police report, Ellenora reported that the defendant moved out in 2009 but neither party

filed for a legal separation or dissolution. In 2010, Ellenora found out about his relationship with Teri

and she was arrested for domestic violence. When Ellenora learned that he may be married to Teri, she

called his mother. An hour later the defendant arrived at her apartment and she asked him several times if

they were divorced. The defendant said “No we are still married”. She told him that she found out about

him being married to Teri and he told her not to tell anyone and that he would fix the problem.

I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF

WASHINGTON THAT THE FOREGOING IS TRUE AND CORRECT.

DATED: March 8, 2012

  1. Great post! I’ve always thought it was unfair that men are treated as if it’s somehow impossible for them to be abused.

  2. This is great and I’m glad you are posting this.
    Hopefully, in his area the transition houses had ones that took in men. Many are guaranteed to be male free some are also child free. Also there is gay/transgender friendly transition houses as well. Sometimes the law doesn’t deal with gay partnership abuse cases well, because lack of training and going into hiding can be the only option.

    Transition houses in my area are one month stay hidden shelters with security.

Don't bother.
