It may be possible, but not guaranteed. Having an attorney negotiate for you is your best bet. It really depends on many different variables. If you haven't already done so, you should discuss your case with a criminal defense attorney.
Your best bet at getting the charges dropped is to retain an attorney to fight for you. It sounds like a weak case against you. You certainly want to fight this, and remember that the prosecution carries a high burden which they must meet before you can be found guilty.
I wish you the best of luck.
If there is no custody order issued by the court, then you as a parent have the right to bring the child to your friend's house. I would advise you to file for an Order for Protection as soon as possible. You can do this on your own, or with the help of an attorney. If you go to www.mncourts.gov/selfhelp/, you can find information on applying for the OFP.
I hope you find this information helpful and feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. I wish you the best of luck.

It is very important to be represented in this process. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your case gurther. I wish you the best of luck.
Ms. Ackerman's evaluation of the statute and case is correct. I agree that self defense could be used to benefit your son. The act of fighting can be enough to charge your son with either assault or disorderly conduct (or both). Assuming your son has no record, it may be possible to resolve the case without your son being adjudicated as a deliquent (the juvenile equivalent to a conviction). Many prosecutors could be willing to offer deferred prosecution or diversion, which would require your...
I don't think you due process is being violated. However, if you are having issues with your public defender then you may be able to request from his supervisor that you be appointed a different public defender. The issue is that although you have a right to an appointed counsel, you do not have a right to any particular appointed counsel. Public defenders are all attorneys and they know the law and rules of evidence; however, often times they do have high case loads, but that doesn't mean he...
There are many different reasons why a court date could be rescheduled. If you have an attorney, I suggest you ask him this question. If you do not have an attorney, then it may be in your best interest to retain an attorney.
The no contact order will last as long as the case is pending. If he is found guilty, or pleas, one condition of his sentence may also be no contact.
The judge is the only person who has the power to lift the no contact order. If your boyfriend has an attorney, you could talk to him about tryong to get the.order lifted.
