Sarah Stokes, loosely termed “star” of MTV’s Making the Band 2, was arrested after stabbing her husband, Tony, several times in full view of their three children.
Another in a long line of cases that are potentially destined for the “Female Sentencing Discount” file, we read this in the article:
Stokes was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. The D.A. is deciding whether to charge the singer.
In what world would a man stab his wife 3 times in full view of the children and receive such delicate consideration from the District Attorney’s Office? In what world is NOT charging her, jailing her, and prosecuting her to the fullest extent of the law an appropriate conclusion to this crime?
Reportedly, Sarah Stokes fell down the concrete steps of their home after an argument with her husband, injuring her face. Her mugshot is a sight to behold. In the aftermath of that, she falsely accused her husband of having done it. Somehow, and in some way, Tony was able to avoid being arrested as men so often are in situations like this. Here’s hoping that it was the children who stood up for their father after witnessing their mother repeatedly stab him in front of their very eyes.
We continue to wonder why men don’t have equal treatment and equal protection under the law when it comes to Domestic Violence issues. The truth is out there, and men are victims hundreds of thousands of times each year (those that are reported) and are fully 1/3 of all domestic violence injures requiring medical treatment. Yet, there are still scant few resources available for men and funding for same is nearly non-existent.
It’s not only a shame for men, it’s a shame for society.

You don’t know the full story. Everyone in the Michigan county this couple is from knows that Tony is abusive physically and emotionally. Have you ever watched Making of the Band or are you only commenting on what has been published in the article? If you watch any and/or all of the episodes where Tony is on the show with his wife, he is controlling, belligerent, and over bearing. You should check your facts first before making such an in-depth analysis or at least remain neutral weighing both sides, at least until more information is released. I understand however the purpose of your site but please don’t be so anxious to find a story in favor of your message that you skip conducting thorough research.
Frank – I appreciate your additional insight. However, according to police – she falsely accused Tony of domestic violence (pushing her down the concrete steps, when she fell on her own, causing herself to be injured) as a means of defending her charging into the home to stabbing him multiple times in front of the children. That’s wrong no matter what you purport to know about the whole of their relationship.
At no time we will condone what is tantamount to attempted murder in the face of someone being “overbearing, controlling, and belligerent.”
Further, we will certainly NOT use carefully orchestrated, well-edited “reality television programming” as a basis for passing judgment on anyone. Her real life actions are subject to judgment based upon the facts as we’re to understand them.
