Sadia Loeliger Arrested, Jailed for
Felony Domestic Violence
Sadia describes her marriage to Scott as "tumultuous" and claims that Scott Loeliger was "verbally and emotionally abusive." Sadia has not claimed that
Scott was ever physically abusive in the marriage. However, she leaves out the
fact that she was arrested and jailed for committing felony domestic violence
against Scott during their marriage.
On February 4, 1989 Sadia
Loeliger was arrested and jailed for domestic violence under Section 273.5 of
the California Penal Code in Santa Clara County, California. Sadia had attacked
Scott and inflicted deep lacerations on Scott's back and neck, some of which are
still visible today. The CEN# for The People of the State of California vs.
Sadia Loeliger is 8979471.
Like many domestic violence
victims, Scott refused to press charges. (This was before "no drop" policies in
domestic violence arrests became common).

California Penal Code
Section 273.5 reads:
"Any person who willfully inflicts upon a person who is his or her spouse,
former spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant, or the mother or father of his or
her child, corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition, is
guilty of a felony, and upon conviction thereof shall be
punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years,
or in a county jail for not more than one year, or by a fine of up to six
thousand dollars ($6,000) or by both that fine and imprisonment."
This was Sadia's only
arrest for domestic violence but it was not her only incident of domestic
violence against Scott Loeliger. In fact, a psychologist whom Sadia has cited in
her defense clearly acknowledges two incidents of Sadia's violence towards
Scott. Quinn writes:
"There were two episodes of
physical violence by her [Sadia] towards her husband. She feels these were
wrong, but that they were provoked, too....there are affidavits in the court
records about Sadia attacking a babysitter at Scott Loeliger's home, and
threatening her small baby while picking up Fatima...her violence is apparently
confined to her relationship with Scott...Sadia has clearly been beyond adaptive
bounds with violence with Scott.

The "babysitter" who Quinn
describes as Sadia attacking and threatening her baby is Terry Sais, Scott's
former roommate. To learn more about Sadia Loeliger's physical attack on Terri
