It depends on a lot of factors. Has your daughter ever been in trouble with the law before? Was she charged strictly with battery? When she goes to court, she will have to decide if she wants to admit to the charge or if she wants to deny the charge. If she denies, then she would be given the opportunity to have a trial. I strongly suggest that you speak to an attorney regarding the case. My firm has an office in Tucker and we practice in Dekalb County if you would like to speak to one of us.
