I never imagined a claim this ludicrous in all my life. Heard that before I'm sure.

I was a cutter+addict and was on the verge of a relapse. Awful day, lost my job, argument with mother etc. I know I'm not special and except no sympathy in that realm.

So in this argument with my mom I imply that I feel like cutting again. I take a knife from the kitchen and lock myself in my room contemplating using again vs cutting. Mom threatens to call the cops. I beg her not to, and let me call my therapist. She disagrees because my therapist is lax about having me admitted when I honestly need it. Mom says she called the sherrifs office to have me escorted to the psych ward. I'm pissed but I let it go.

I came out of my room without my knife and talk to the cops. They sternly tell me to respect my mother, then leave.

A month later I'm at a party and there is a noise complaint. Everyone's names get ran. There I learn there us a warrant for my arrest. They give me a bond and let me go

ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON. I'm accused of brandishing a knife which counts as assault in this great state. To top it off, it counts as a domestic assault and cannot be dropped by the alledged victim.

I went to court terrified. I asked for a continuance out of fear that either a guilty or not guilty plea would have me locked up. I signed a doc willing away my right to a court appointed attorney. I cant afford my own so that fucked myself again.

I got a month before my next court date and likely jail sentence. My mom is willing to help in any way short of saying she lied.

Im going to be branded as a wife beater whilst not having a wife, or ever raising my hand to a woman. What can we do?

Get lawyer NOW. shut the fuck up, don't talk to anyone. Delete all social media accounts asap. Then hurry up and wait. You could have everything dismissed, but only with a competent lawyer.

That's funny. The most likely explanation for what's happening is that your mom lied at some point about being threatened. But yeah, get a lawyer, get the evidence, and don't plead guilty to any violent crimes.

Do you have a lawyer? Get a lawyer. You probably can't get the case deismissed yourself, but any lawyer should be able to handle this if there's not more to the story. Don't plead guilty to anything.

If there's not more to the story police saw the after effects of an aggravated assault, and then just left y'all be? There's not a prosecutor in the world that would try to explain that to a jury.

the way court usually works is you plead guilty, or plead to a lesser charge. it's all set up a certain way, to work a certain way. it's even rare a decent lawyer can get you off of a charge completely if the cops and judge has it out for you, which they seem to if they issued a warrant in that sneaky ass way. stop talking about your case. if you cant drop a shit ton on a good lawyer, expect a higher charge potentially. like i said good lawyers are there, and if they're well known and respected by certain people, they can get your charges dropped down to a plead agreement. it sucks but they really work against you if you plead not guilty. like pleading not guilty can land your ass in jail or with a rack of huge fines in the end. sucks but it is what it is cuz

**to a lesser plea

for instance my brother got arrested with a pizo and meth, that legit was someone elses in the car. they charged him with it, and he basically had no chance of winning. even his lawyer said use an addiction argument, so you can get a plea deal to a lesser charge, which he did, instead of both controlled substance, it was just a paraphernalia charge. like i said the courts aren't about guilty or not guilty, it's about how willing you are to play ball, and work with them. they don't want anyone going to trial. shit there's even fees if you lose a trial for a misdemeanor in many states, so right there, that makes you say guilty right away, fuck my record, give me the lesser fine and get me out of here. a mother fucker can kill 6 people and walk as long as he works with the police and courts to give them someone more beneficial, someone with a higher price. don't expect to walk just because your not guilty.
