I recommend you stop discussing this matter on a public forum and obtain a criminal defense attorney. If this is your first offense, a skilled attorney should be able to plea you down (or maybe even get the charges dropped for lack of evidence) and get you into a program to seek help for any drinking and anger management problems you have. You should not face the criminal justice system on your own.

Good luck.

Hire an attorney or if you can't afford one, you will have one appointed to you. Discuss your case with your attorney. They will advise you on the merits of your case, find out the State's position on your case and determine whether or not the victim wants to co-operate.

Time to sober up because it is in your daughter's best interests.
